First Time Post, Long Time Lurker

Just saying hello, have found many answers to my many questions here , and
But have just registered after seeing how much more welcoming and informative this site is as compared to the other one on the "net". I garnered a lot of information on that site but have pretty well given up on visiting there due to
arrogance and posts that drift endlessly for pages with snippets of good information laced in between the (my opinion is better and yours sucks) posts.
I know there are some that post here and there but I've found this to be more civil and accepting of choice of vessel. Though my sailing experience is five years young , I'll present any information I can if the opportunity arises.
Scott
