He is a racer. Does not have a BBQ on the stern rail. I don't trust people without BBQ"s. What are you guy's thinking? What does a racer know about BBQ recipes. You ever try to hang out with them. All they want to talk about is low stretch, hi carbon, bright colored line.

To save me from making another post. Glad to have you as a Moderator Faster.

Let me add my welcome to Faster!

When we learned of Cruising Dad's plans to head to sea (he's been lakebound all these years ), the obvious question was "Who to replace him?" Of course, Cruising Dad is irreplaceable -- but we still needed another moderator.

It's no exaggeration to say that we all chimed "Faster" nearly simultaneously.

If you've been around Sailnet any amount of time, you've more than likely benefitted from or enjoyed in some way Faster's posts. Whether it's been sound advice about boat choices or qualities, guidance on sail handling, suggestions for dinghies, anecdotes from his family sailing adventures, trip reports from his home cruising grounds in the Pacific Northwest, or dispatches from farther afield -- we've all come to know Faster as a consummate sailor and gentleman of the first order. He'll be a great addition to the Sailnet gang.

Thanks for taking this on, Faster. Looking forward to working with you!

P.S. Remember, you have to post your own introduction in the "Meet the Mods" thread -- or else we get to post one for you, replete with "authentic" photos and "documented" biography.

Welcome to the Mod Squad Fast.

This is good news. First an Australian , now a Canadian. If Britain still had an empire we could all sing Rule Britannia.

And don't believe a word from the naysayers.......I've not regretted my decision for one moment.

Goodonya.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
