CF members to seek advice from

We all have certain deficits in our cruising, seamanship, and system's knowledge. My hope is this thread with contributions from others, will identify the truly knowledgeable in the arenas that we seek advise. Below is my personal pick of members that are above par in given areas. Please add to the list.

For electrical and RF

btrayfors



For batteries and DC systems

T1 Terry, Maine Sail


For Seamanship

atoll


For A~Z general knowledge

sailorchic34, Astrid




The above hardly scratches the surface of the collected knowledge that we have on this forum, so everyone add to it and make it more complete.

For advice on the brewing, storage and consumption of beer, especially during a circumnavigation, I suggest Markj.

I am fairly sure that if you start a thread in the Anchoring forum, you will get plenty of expert advice without having to seek it out.

Re: CF members to seek advice from

Lagoon4us seems to have tons of marine-relevant experience, generally gives informative and level headed responses, and has lots of real-life experience with Catamaran cruising and ocean sailing.
