What I've learned since joining CF:
Don Lucas and his humour are missed!
There are more opinions than there are members<grin>
Gord May is the resident "book of knowledge" and I'll share another beer
with him someday.
Don't buy cheap sails
...spend the $$, and do it right the first time.
Anchors....oh boy....guns....oh boy....Hunter sailboats....oh boy!
Nobody seems to discuss electric
windlasses are for just about everyone....but not quite all
Buy the biggest, newest sailboat that YOU can afford...and like
If you post problems with your diesel
...you'll find the answer on this forum
You'll find great tips on anchoring
, what marinas
to visit, which restaurants to eat at, which brokers are good....and not so good
How to dock
in a cross current
, cross wind
...or even with a huge crowd watching you
Some members think true liveaboards have plants in the cockpit
And certainly not the last thing I've learned...it's the best money
I've spent so far in regards to sailing......Paypal or not!
