I had been travelling for work the last few weeks, and missed your first post in that other thread... Welcome to SailNet!
Every year, those of us in the northern hemisphere get a little nutz from either boat withdrawal, or anticipation of the upcoming season. You'll soon figure out who is having the toughest time managing their withdrawal/anticipation issues.
Mentioning in your first post
that you are considering a power boat, have a good income, are a lawyer, and a spouse
... well, you're bound to provoke someone. To that, add in the fact that any
first post will be regarded with suspicion. I'm not excusing it, but that's just the way the internet is.
If someone really gets your goat, or you decide is totally useless, I suggest that you use the "ignore poster" feature.
Stick around - if you are serious about sailing. This can be a helpful and informative place.
Once again, welcome to SailNet.
