Hello everyone!

I am new to this. Wet behind the ears as they say. I am a licensed merchant mariner captain. I drive towboats and barges for a living. Looking to get into yachting as in owning my own and possible chartering myself out as a captain. Any advice is worth hearing. So please feel free to talk to me.

Re: Hello everyone!

Welcome Capt. There are, of course, differences to learn. The first being: Stay out of the way of the tugboats and barges!

Re: Hello everyone!

Welcome to CruisersForum!

I would suggest updating your profile with your boat make & model or “Looking” in the "Boat" category. This info shows up under your UserName in every post in the web view. Many questions are boat and/or location dependent and having these tidbits under your UserName saves answering those questions repeatedly. If you need help setting up your profile then click on this link: https://www.cruisersforum.com/forums...ml#post3308797

I would happily help more if the link above is not enough.
