New guy, Martin from Cape Town

Hello folks.

I just joined the forum where I am looking to gather as much information as possible on a live aboard life style.

I just turned 40 and live in Cape Town. I would love to have a boat in the not too distant future. In the meantime, I will be going on as many training courses and gaining as much skill as possible in the coming years.

Many thanks for the tips and advice you post.

Howdy and Welcome Aboard CF!

Since you are new to this forum, let me mention a few things you might miss but that could help you more enjoy your time here:

Take a look at the Cruising WIKI that is found via the tab up on the top menu bar of the forum. It has a LOT of information in it you might find fun, interesting, or helpful.

Looking for Quick Answers?

This is the best and fastest method I have found to the answers I seek here.
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. Note: this is VERY different from using the regular forum search box or field (which I never use because of poor search results). Also note, this is NOT found if you use the CF app. It IS found if you use a web browser such as Safari, etc.

Note: The ordinary "search" field on this forum has yielded less helpful results for me when I perform searches. That is why I prefer and suggest the use of the alternative "Google Custom Search" instead. I see a very clear difference and find the Google Custom Search much easier for scanning (with my eyes) threads for relevant comments and info. YMMV
