If either of my grandmothers had an outboard motor I would consider it very relevant.

For a signature I'd just like to see roughly where people live. A state is better than small towns.
Or a Province or a country.
Where a person lives frequently has a lot to do w what you might say to them.
And if you list some small town 1000 miles from me I won't have the vaguest idea where it is.
Thanks in advance.

My previous trawler was a 25' Swedish Albin.
My username is a hint to my other boats.
My previous username was nomadwilly

Growing up in the midwest, we had more motors than boats. Back then, you'd bring your motor(s) to the fishing lodge where your motorless fishing boat awaited you outside your fishing cabin. You'd strap your motors onto the boat, load your rods, tackle boxes and rain gear and take off in fishing bliss. It was Men Only. In the evening while the Dads were hanging out smoking and drinking, the boys would take the boats out and REALLY learn about the finer skills of boating.

My high school years were filled with memories of weekend camping/fishing trips with Dad's 5 horse Johnson at countless campgrounds with the HS Sportsmen's Club. If that motor could talk, I never would have survived my high school years!!

My family owned a Johnson Seahorse 16hp and a Seahorse 5hp motor. The 16HP was so big and heavy that we kept it in a crate and would ship it ahead to the fishing lodge weeks before our arrival. I recently saw a Johnson Seahorse 5 in a museum in Beaufort, NC. Made me feel especially old!

So my signature bio would have to include boat motors. The story would be lost on most readers...

Eric, I agree. Below your avatar is the best place to share this information. With input from around the world- it does add a cool element to each post, knowing some one else's boating region can be so different than mine. Example- anchoring. We either have sand or mud. 15 feet of water would be a deep anchorage for our area. 1-2 foot tidal range. And a mechanical windlass for me is not a burden. ....Sorry- starting to hijack the thread.I think Bakers intention was to show what so much of us have done. Steady incriments of larger boats. AND- if you have arrived at the size and style that finally keeps you satisfied!
