I have visited this forum a number of times and look forward to any guidance you can provide.
Howdy and Welcome Aboard the Forum Old Gregg!
I wish I could be cruising the channel islands this summer!

There have been threads posted on the forum discussing many topics at length, with differing opinions. But quickly finding the right thread and the right answer could take a while, if one just browses the forum.
Since you are relatively new to the forum, here is my favorite friendly forum search tip: Look at the green menu bar on the forum pages for the drop down "Search" menu. Click on that to drop down a list of search functions. From that drop down menu select the GOOGLE
CUSTOM search feature (the second box down) and then enter several different descriptive terms for your topic of interest. That will do a Custom google
search of ONLY this site and it is likely to find answers to your questions or results for you. It is the best and fastest method I have found to the answers I seek here.
Good luck and have fun sailing!
