Please Read Before Posting

Hi to all you new members.
Please note that this Forum heading is "Meets and Greets" . This is where you introduce yourself. Please take your time to look around the rest of the forum before posting anything other than your introduction here. You should find a topic heading that will meet any question you have to pose (boating related that is). Please post questions in those particular related forums. If you ask a question in this forum heading, you may find your question is never fully answered.
Thanks, have a great time here, we look forward to seeing your posts.

For God so loved the world..........He didn't send a committee.

A Posting Hint

A further note, to improve the “answerability” and “searchability’ of your queries:
Compose thread titles with care.
Ie: A new thread titled, “What is the Right Size Propeller ?” will attract much more, and more appropriate attention, than one containing the same question, but titled; “Hi - new member from Tahiti”, or “What size”.
Correct speeling also helpz.

Our Forum “Search” function isn’t really all that functional; however there is an EXCELLENT “Custom” Google Search, for subjects in the CruisersForum at:

Punctuation / Speeling in Titles

We now have a good search machine. But it's not very clever, so it looks for words exactly as they are spelt. Therefore, please try to spell correctly (the wiggly red underlines can help you here), and avoid using punctuation immediately adjacent to a word.

Bad Title: Refigeration/Kool Box!
Good Title: Refrigeration / Cool Box !

Thank you
