Smile Congrats Faster - Our Newest Moderator

Everyone,

Please join me in welcoming Faster as Sailnet's newest moderator.

It did not take a lot of convinving to get Faster on board. The fact that we have five of the six keel bolt-nuts (that he is missing) is purely coincindental and we will prove it in court. And for the record, that fur in the bilge was not rodent fur. Wombats are marsupials.

In all seriousness, we have followed Faster's posts for a long time. He is a very knowledgeable sailor who knows what he is talking about. He has always taken an interest in helping out others and presents his information well. As importantly, Faster has always been thoughtful in his responses. Even in times when tempers could have been raised, he has appraoched the discussions with sensitivity for how his comments would be perceived and how to calm down (and avoid) the situation. My fellow members, Faster is a gentleman. We are very fortunate to have him a part of this team. It is also a huge plus that he is Canadian (as we have a huge Candian audience here) and that he is from the Pacific Northwest. He will represent both of them very well - plus it allows us as moderators to spread out our 'on-line' and availability much further.

Please give Faster the support you have given me and the other mods. I believe each of you will find that he is a wonderful addition to our team and will be fair in his responses and actions. Like I said, Faster is a true gentleman and Sailnet is lucky to have him.

Welcome aboard Faster!

Brian

PS We will return one nut for each years of service, as promised!!

Welcome aboard Faster. Having been around here since the mid-1990's the one thing you can say about Sailnet is that it has always been evolving and usually for the best. While all of us Mod's will miss Brian's (CruisingDad) contributions, I personnally am very excited to have you as a fellow Moderator. I have been a fan of your contributions to discussions over the year and now look forward to your contributions to the Moderation Team.

Jeff

cool!

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

Very Nice choice.
Congratulations to Faster.

By support, do you mean to mercilessly harass him and not cut him an inch of slack if he screws up in the smallest of ways? I guess we can handle that.

BTW congrats Faster.
