While reading the September 2012 issue of 'Ocean Navigator' I came across an article on 'Fire Fighting Gear'. I found the article extremely informative and a seldom discussed topic on boating forums
. At it's conclusion I was pleasently surprised to see that it was written by one of the members of Cruisers Forum, Mr John Kettlewell. Although he is not the only well known boating
personality to frequent this Forum, I felt it important to point his article out for fellow CF'ers who may not subscribe to 'Ocean Navigator'. The wealth of knowledge available to members on 'CF' because folks like Mr Kettlewell take the time to post is another reason I enjoy reading 'CF'.
The other reason being that some posters (David of Jersey, Boatman61, amongst others!) have a great sense of humor
no matter how heated a topic may become. That kind of takes the 'edge' off of a debate and allows it to regain it's course often times. It's all boating whatever kind someone does be it power, sail, or human powered, to each their own. We're fortunate to have a 'place' like 'CF' to all come together to share, laugh, and commiserate the owning of a boat.
Take a minute to read the article on 'Fire Fighting gear' by Mr Kettlewell, I believe you'll find it worth your time.
