Hi Mike,

Re: Post new thread

It's easy to start a New Thread - once you're logged in, click on Forums. On the page that opens, you will see several different sections that are labeled Welcome Aboard, Scuttlebutt, The Fleet, etc. Within those seven sections are the various forums available at Cruisers Forum. It is organized this way to make it easy to find information by subject, and reading through the many titles for the various forums will give you a clear idea of what each deals with.

Clicking on a specific forum in a section will open a page showing the most recent threads posted within that forum. This is the page you're looking for if you want to start a New Thread. If you have a question about, for example, a particular brand and length of vessel like a Catalina 30, and the question is general in nature, you might decide to post your question to the Monohull Sailboats forum in The Fleet section. If, however, your question is more finely-focused, like, for example, "Is a Garmin GPS Better than a Magellen?" - you'd place such a question in the Navigation forum in the section The Life Aquatic Aboard a Boat. Typically, however, our new members start by placing an introductory message in the Meets & Greets forum in the Welcome Aboard section.

Once you decide on the most logical place to post your New Thread, and you've clicked on the forum you've chosen, you'll see a button on the left side of the page labeled New Thread. There is a New Thread button both above and below the list of threads already posted within a given forum. Click on New Thread and follow the prompts, compose your message and click on Preview to be sure it reads the way you want and to give you a chance to correct any spelling, punctuation or grammatical errors. This also allows you one last chance to be sure you haven't written anything that is against the Rules. Then, when you're happy with how your New Thread appears, click on Submit Thread.

That's all there is to it.
