First Lurk...Longtime Poster

I don't think I ever really introduced myself. My name's Smack. I'm a shrinking violet that just learned how to sail. Please be gentle with me.

I've been posting for a couple of years but I just got up the courage to lurk.

Hey smack - welcome to SN dude. You'll like the place.

You should check out the "Lurker's Corner Table" thread. Lot's to learn.

Ya...Im boggled by long time lurkers as well...

I cant keep my opinion to myself that long...I see you have the same condition but much , much worse.....we can rehab together...

"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.

Welcome to the forums Smack. Being new to sailing there is a lot of good information over in the Learning to Sail forum, which is where I should spend my time too, but then I wouldn't get to post incorrect information and bad advice over in the gear forum, and SD would never get the chance to fix it. Lots to see and do here at Sailnet, welcome, spring is almost here! No, no, ignore the snow, spring is almost here! No, I know its cold, but spring is almost here!

What are you pretending not to know ?
