To the Contributing Posters on this Forum.

FYI: This Site has been, and will continue to be of great help to me, and others like me, because of you. You are what make the Internet worthwhile for me.
I am the guy that is buying his first sailboat with a dream, sponging up information; admittedly. I am the guy that doesnít know a backstay from an anchor rode. The best contribution I can make, for anyone at this point is to let you know I am reading those of you that are posting good information, and let you know how much I, and I am sure others appreciate that. I am learning a lot. Maybe someday Iíll be a contributor.
I am an Airplane Pilot (not new), and Pilots are open and very willing to help junior Pilots. One thing Iíve learned here is that the Captains of a Vessel @ zero feet feel the same way. In the sky or on the Sea, our vessels are our containers of life.

Favorable winds and Blue Skies to ya,

Re: To the Contributing Posters on this Forum.

Welcome aboard! There are a lot of knowledgeable, helpful folk here, so feel free to ask questions. If you can't find what you want in the sub-fora, you can google a topic like this:

"best anchor" site:https://www.sailnet.com/forums/

1) Use the quote marks or you'll be swamped with irrelevant hits based on the individual words in your search phrase.

2) No [space] between site: and the url

3) "best anchor" is a joke; anchor threads are infamously notorious for the ......liveliness..... of discussion they generate. They can be enlightening and entertaining as long as you don't take them too seriously.

Clear skies & soft landings.

Manatee,
I love your picture of the day and often wonder what would it be like to go sailing in that sea!

Very peaceful, I should think.

I remember reading an Arthur C. Clarke story years ago about a race of solar-sail-powered yachts -- "Sunjammer" is the title. Always thought that would be a great way to get about the Solar System.

Wish it was my site, I just post the link. You can spend hours in the archive (I have),- the search is pretty good, if you want something in particular.

Re: To the Contributing Posters on this Forum.

What always amazes me is the folks who contribute so much but also work with boats for a living, posters like Mainesail, Auspicious to name a few and of course the quality moderators...the best of any sailing or boating forum I know of. Many quality posts by people like RichH, JeffH to name a couple more.

Made lots of good friendships here as well, some when you need them the most like Tempest who helped us get our sail fixed on our trip to LIS.

Cheers

Shawn
