New to the Forum!

Hi, just wanted to drop a quick line to the "Forum" with a hearty thanks! I've been a member for a few months and have read a lot and asked a few questions. I'm looking at my next adventure (post current career) and want to dive and sail in the Caribbean. We are eyeing an FP44 Helia or an FP47 "New" boat. Big THANKS to Mark Cote, aka "Cotemar" for all that he has opened my eyes and thoughts, cheers!

Re: New to the Forum!

Howdy and Welcome Aboard CF!

There is a vast amount of information here and many helpful members who have extensive experience. Good that you have found help already.

Your two potential boats would be dream boats for many. I know I would love to have either. Should be fun.

Here is something I like to share with new members here, because it helps me each day I visit here. I hope it will help you too.

My Favorite CF Forum Tip: Use the Google Custom Search Function

I know that most people who are new to this forum might try the ordinary search function of the forum when they have a question in mind. Unfortunately that always yielded few results for me when I tried that when I first joined this forum. In contrast, a standard Google search outside of the forum can produce a bewildering list of links too. It was only later that I learned to quickly and easily find great links to archived or previous threads on a topic.

I only use the Google Custom Search field on this forum when searching this forum, and I find all the answers I need here too using that.

I find it superior to an ordinary search using the standard "search" field and usually get the answers I want very quickly. So, it is my "number one tip" to newer forum members. .

Note! The Google Custom Search field is found under the "Search" menu seen at the top of your browser window when you are in the CF forum on any page. However, it is NOT shown as an option if you are viewing the Forum site using the CF Mobile app. Use a browser like Safari instead.
Ahoy All Sailors! Need Crew for a long voyage either coastal, ICW, or across an ocean in 2016-2017? I am available. See my CF Profile "About Me" page for details. Happy to lend a hand!
