1000 Posts of Sailing Nothingness

This is my 1000th post here. Wonder if I should stop so it always shows the big 1000 under my name? Wonder if I search though the 1000 posts how many were worth the electrical power needed to produce them? Wonder if taking up crack smoking would be a production use of time instead? Guess in the long run, after 1000 posts all I have is wonder!

You are not alone

I sometimes look at my own post count and roll my eyes

I reckon my strike rate is 1 in 10 of anything useful.

This is 1 of the 9

All caused by boredom and not needing to sail the boat...

YOU may not think they are worth the power, however for us noobies, the old salts are a wealth of knowledge. I post on another forum with 7000+ postings. People always PM me for information. We need the 'pros' here so we can learn the ropes.

Don't stop posting.

I thought posting was something one did whilst riding English style on a horse.

Thanks for sharing...

Thanks for all the posting, I have been reading on here for a while and only recently decided to start sharing (didn't feel I had the experience before, or most of the questions I had had already been asked) - so KEEP POSTING EVERYONE!
