An insult? No
A sincere thanks? Yes
I think you are underestimating the members here. We all did something before we sailed. And my guess is many here do more than just sail now.
I am sure there are doctors, lawyers, pilots, engineers, bums.......
My question was related to boating
more or less. One guy had the exact answer I needed.
I frequent a scuba
forum and a flying forum. Its been my experience that there are many many members lurking daily who don't join in the day to day dialog but read every post. When they see a question they and have the answer they join in. I bet it would be hard to find a problem that nobody here has an answer for.
