Many times it is a question that has been asked many times before, but the people that I am thinking of always manage to be courteous, answer the question, sometimes suggest other sources of information, and in the process manage to make the person asking the question feel good about the whole thing.
Although I do have certain people in mind as I write this, I am not going to name any names, because for sure I would miss someone who should not be missed.
So just a general thanks -- you not only help others but you contribute greatly to making the Forum a good place to visit.
A...hey..hey..men....a..hey..hey..men...a..hey..he y..men, amen...amen..!

Good thought there John...

A great resource, a sense of humour and a sprinkling of curmudgeons. Who could ask for more.

The collective knowledge on this forum is one supersized hard drive. To date, I haven't seen a question go unanswered (or at least lacking comment). Thanks to all who give freely of their time.

I started here in December 2007. If I remember correctly, my first questions were about building my own boat, steel hull, etc etc. The answers were all informative and polite, but the bottom line was don't attempt it unless you have lots of time (years) and the skills of many of the trades that built the Empire State Building.
Thanks to everyone who has ever helped me out, and I hope I've been able to help someone too.

Boats come and go...the tools for developing friendships. For me Trawler Forum is invaluable for creating lasting friendships which go way beyond these floating money pits!

Yeah, and while we're at it, thanks for allowing my various boat phobias, manias, sick humor and even my Photoshop fetishes.
