<someone from another sailing site suggested checking it out…>

Ditto – as best as I can remember… was looking up something to do with rigging, as I recall, and on another forum someone had a link in…

Usually I don’t linger long on forums I surf into, but the format looked a bit more “together” and I particularly liked the general camaraderie and lack of flaming among sailors of obviously widely varying degrees of experience/interests, so I diddled around for several weeks in stealth mode before working up the courage to join in a discussion...


Worry: misuse of imagination…

Was Google searching for Rum drinks and look where I ended up!

Seriously, I am another Stumblebum and very glad I am to.

Work is the curse of the boating classes

My boat's mfg is out of business and I ocassionaly search the mfg's name to see if anything pops up and that's how I found the forum. There was thread that mentioned Solaris.

Started checking out random sites after when sailnet became erratic...started to realize when I needed some info it usually was aready covered here and it was correct. That went on for a couple of years before I actually joined and then months before I first posted. I had come to conclusion knowledgeable helpful members with wide and varied backgrounds and experiences willing to tackle the toughest and most basic questions/topics from seasoned and new sailors alike without making them feel dumb, while having fun!

I was doing a Google search while doing research on what catamaran to consider purchasing when I found Cruisers Forum.

I read through a few threads on catamarans and I was hooked..there was good information from people who are actually out there cruising.

The top three boats on my list, thanks to the bounty of information I have received from everyone here are the Gunboat 48, the Catana 52 and the Catana 58. I'm looking forward to seeing them in person at some of the upcoming boat shows and chartering a few as well.

Life begins where land ends.

How did you find this site

Hello All, I use the British forum hosted by Yachting Monthly and one of the members told that forum of this super site. I looked and was very impressed by the detailed and friendly messages so I am a regular visitor now. Thank you to all of you who take the time to keep it going. Peter

Hit this site a few times while doing general google searches about boat models but got fixed when a broker suggested it. As soon as I actually typed the name in and saw it I thought "oh yeah thats where all the good information has been". Haven't looked back.

Checking on what had been written on Harryproas and came across it. It is the best of the general cruising forums I have come across, more informative, people appear better reasoned and less combative,

How did you find this site?

I searched for "Nobeltec Forum". Hit #2 in the list.

Why? We won't go into that. Let's just say my first post was pulled because it was a rant. Something to do with Nobeltec discontinuing support for S-57 charts, something like that... Dang, I said I wasn't going into it.

Googling while looking for boats, boat yards and types etc.
Very glad to have found you. I hope providing this service leaves you time to sail.
I've spent hours trying to balance all the different solutions to each problem.
Do I luff a cat or pay off in heavy weather.
I suppose if your going to be the skipper you have to learn to make decisions and deal with any wrong ones. First Lesson?
Second lesson - Don't frighten the admiral? Bless her.

Ex Prout 31 Sailor, Now it's a 22ft Jaguar called 'Arfur' here in sunny Southampton, UK.
A few places left in Quayside Marina and Kemps Marina.
