Decades of working on boats, learning to sail in the North Sea, Cruising from Duluth MN to the Caribbean, being a full time liveaboard for twenty years and total rebuilds of three cruising powerboats has taught me a thing or two about boats but ..... I place just as much value on my education in meteorology, composite engineering, electrical systems and corrosion analysis and the literally dozens of course I've taken over the years from people such as Dave Rifkin, Ed Sherman, Kevin Ritz, Blake Lloyd .......

I know many boaters who claim 30 years of experience but what they really have is one years experience repeated 30 times.

Educated experience is the key in my humble opinion.
