The... "listen carefully to what they divulge' is most important portion of quote from my dad; because, of course, the others also know things that you do not.

Nearly equally as important [or, even more so in some tender situations]... "Be careful to whom you tell what!" In other words - don't get your ass in a bind you can't get out of! -

There's a 12 step for this addiction that embeds itself in many of us.

1st step - Know how to swim!

12th step - Swim a lot!

Steps 2 thru 11, summation: Don't fall overboard unless you plan to go swimming! And, use your boat often as possible to try and fulfill needs of your addiction!!

Happy Boat-Addict Daze! - Art

I think the attraction for me is to help other people if possible. I was taught to do one good deed every day of my life and if I can pass on some practical help then I've done a good deed.
Now there's anchors, Bruce versus CQR, versus Fisherman's. Twins versus singles, Para vanes versus stabilizers, complicated fuel polishing versus basic filtration systems, ah what else using wine as ballast versus lead or concrete.
That should start several discussions.
In truth its like minded people enjoying the fellowship of friends, sharing a common hobby, and freely giving information to help our brothers and sisters to improve our collective lifestyle with passion.

I am here to learn. Lot of knowledge and experience.


Don't visit every day, typically looking 5 out of 7 days.


Try to add something to give back to the knowledge base. My read to post ratio is probably (95% read, 5 % post).

So the philosophical question.
Why?
Why are you involved in this forum?
Is it only for informative purpose?
Is it because you feel part of a community or "family"?
Is it only by curiosity?
Is it only because you have nothing else to do?

I will answer for myself. I am here to learn from you. To get support from more experienced people. Because I am interested in knowing what people loving trawlers think and do. And because I think this " community" is really cool and fun.

What about you?

We are all tribal.

There may be times when a giraffe may hang with the lions but mostly we hang with those whose outlooks are similar.

I find myself basically here for all the reasons that everyone has previously posted. Sometimes knowledge obtained or offered. Sometimes humor. Sometimes advice. And lastly it beats the crap out of watching / hearing fake news all too frequently (lately).

Yup, this is convertible weather and if folks are lucky, it will last to the first of June. After that, put the top up and turn the A/C on. LOL

In FL the leave the top down and just crank up the A/C. If they've got a convertible then, by God, they're goin' to have the top down.
