Doh! You mean I could have learned from someone else's experience/mistakes? But then you won't be able to tell stories that start out with words similar too: "did I tell you about the time I almost died......"

There will be a test on the effectiveness of solar and wind. You can read up on it in your spare time.
Will do! Thanks.

Thanks John. Currently my boat is in Deale at great marina that allows liveaboards but it's a little out of the way from where I am looking for work. I have a lot of inquiries (and a lot of motivation).

Magothy Marina

It's a great Marina with good Live-aboard amenities. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to PM me. (I don't live aboard there but many do.)

Additionally, I'm a member of a really great and fun club in the area.

Welcome to YCCSC's Web Site

Glad to have you.

All the very best,
Craig
Thanks so much Craig. I will definitely check them out.
