I often read through the forums without logging in. I'm not trying to be rude, I just don't have anything to contribute and rarely feel the need to chitchat with strangers. I value the knowledge of the members on this site, and I suspect there are many others who feel the same way.

OK - the boring is over... now to tackle the new blood part. Maybe we could offer free bottom hull cleaning?

She did not just say that! Did she?

No controversy there, Boats.
Just juvenile.

Re: 1216 Guests & 126 Members

I'm one of those "guests" that rarely logs in.... I don't have a boat (yet), have little boating experience, etc.... so just mainly soaking up information

I suspect most of those guests are actually members, and most of the rest are spam / bots crawling the site.

Re: 1216 Guests & 126 Members

Guess because I have the site in my favorites as being logged when I click it I always just kind of figured everyone did it this way instead of having to enter their login each time they visit.
