You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Posting Links

You won't be able to post links or PM until you have 10 posts. If you're having a problem with the links getting screwed up by the Sailnet keyword autolinking engine, you can use TinyURL.com - shorten that long URL into a Tiny URL to convert the url to something the autolinking engine won't screw-up

SD, when I came back on here a few months ago I found your info very helpful. As a relative newcomer though, the one thing that has taken me a little while to understand and grasp, I must say is rep power etc. There seems to be limited info available on this if you do search, with changes/changes back to how rep power works, searches often turn up old inaccurate info. Perhaps this is something you might like to look at adding info on for Newbies?? I understand that it is not a core part of participating in these forums initially, but it is a curious little thing that is hard to understand when you are new to Sailnet or internet forums.

new to sailing

new to this site and new to sailing. I am currently looking for a new job in an area where I can learn to sail and be part of a community, maybe retire to in the future. I want to find an attractive area that welcomes new people and is not terribly expensive. Any suggestions? Not sure if I'm using the posting system correctly. Would welcome your suggestions.

Dont worry about REP power. Some of the most knowledgeable sailors may only have a few posts and no rep. John Rousmaniere is one - amongst many other very seasoned sailors.

Read the advice. Make a determination if it is valid. Follow with discretion.

On the other hand...anyone with a rep of 4 is clearly a patzer...Do NOT even think about following any SAILING advice from such a person. Though...4's have been known to provide excellent instruction on charcoal grilling.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

In your case, I'd recommend a SeaRay, or one of these:


Anything else would probably be too complicated for you.

That boat is awsome and it already has a crew that comes with it.
