Talking Hi

Hi all,
My name is Trav. I'm a sparky. I'm not new to ships but I am new to small boats and just bought my first. She's a 1985 34' Californian sport fish. Twin Cat 3208 with a M&W twin turbo kit on each.
I have creped on this page a few times and couldn't believe the wealth of knowledge on here ! So I had to join just to dumb it down

Thanks

Welcome Electro,
FYI there are several plumbers already here, so you cant dumb it down any more than it already is.

Welcome aboard, Sparky! That 34 Californian SF with turbo Cats probably gets up and moves pretty quickly. Keep an eye out for guys like Moonstruck, Timjet and GFC who like to boat faster than the rest of us can think.

I know there's a reason God made slow boats...I don't know what it is, but I'm fat, dumb and happy at 8mph.
