WD Schock - representing the factory. Hope it is obvious by the screen name
Have Observed many questions about Santanas, Schocks, NY36, Lido 14, Wavelength 24 & 30, and our Harbor day sailors. We thought it might be sensible to help answer these questions.

In the desert
I'm 100% corinthian but get very specially interested in the marine industry when I have to spend money on boat needs! Also, I volunteer to teach boating safety classes in my area and spend some time as a race officer.

The rules seem fine to me.

I understand and read your previous post and have no issue with anything you wrote. Please understand that our only intention is watching out fot he members (all of them and that inculdes you). I would actually love to have someone like you on our forum. You can provide some great advice. All we ask is that in your signature or title, you list your profession so that you get the proper rep you deserve and that people know what you do fof a living and weigh your answers appropriately.
Sorry for any missunderstandings but I do not think it came from the leadership here.

Just got a bright red-lettered admonishment for attempted self-aggrandizement. Hmmm?? Nothing further from the truth, or the intent. I noticed a thread with a comment about charts, and their unavailability in 13X19 format from NOAA. Happens, that I am a Publishing Partner with NOAA, and know that there, in fact, are such charts readily available in exactly that size. My interest in SailNet, however, has nothing to do with "advertising" same, or any promotion whatsoever. I am a sailor first and last. Just clarifying some facts, and at the same time being totally forthcoming in my connections with NOAA. I attempted to put in the NOAA URL, but was denied that. At no moment did I try pushing our own commercial website, or even make mention. I did say charts are available from NOAA agents, and proceded to mention how an interested party could go find one -- if they happened onto me, that would be coincidental, or accidental, as I refrained from mentioning my name or our company name. Hard not to try offering some advice on how to find such charts when a thread says they can't be found. You might also note that I criticised the PocketCharts covering the Florida ICW -- not the tack you'd expect from a crass commercial sharpie like you are accusing me of being. I read and agreed to your terms covering that sort of thing, and would have refrained from such stinky behavior even if you had no such caveat. Perhaps you are used to some bad actors and blatant abusers, so I'll accept your overkill in this case. Try re-reading my comment and tell me where any sly marketing appears. Thanks for the great welcome.

You're OK in my books.

Boasun and Nol,
The only thing we ask about this is that people that are in the marine business are transparent about who they are so as not to try and influence someone(thing) for their own personal/selfish reasons. You should consider putting some of that in your sig line. Why?? Because it will help people to put more credibility in the things you tell them (as long as it is not about anchoring... smile, just kidding). Most people that come here for help/ask questions do not know who knows their stuff and whoe does not.
Not sure if that makes any sense or not??? Kinda late and am having a tough time writing it.

Wow, it's commercial confession time. I generally comment about what teaching's like, since I do it as a part-time stringer captain for a brokerage here (New Orleans) who runs classes to get people interested in the sport. If someone asks where to get lessons around here I'll tell them, but I don't push it, and I'll certainly disclose that I work for brokerage A as an instructor. There are other adult ed. classes here I've taught in too, they're fine and I'll recommend them too. Or I might even recommend someone just go out and learn on their own. I did.
My opinions here are my own. I teach because I like it, certainly not for the money, which isn't that much. I have a 100-ton Aux. Sail license, did 7 years active and 13 Reserve in the Coast Guard.
Hope that's "transparent" enough (people see through me anyway)
