A lurker for years comes in from the cold

Hello all!
First let me say you have a great site here and I have been following it for awhile to gain information from a very educated and caring group. Held off joining until I thought I might have some info of value to share. Being self employed in the boat repair sector for more years than I like to admit to (25+) I find this one of the best sites as far as the open exchange of ideas from such a varied membership willing to help in anyway.
Hopefully I can add a small bit as time progresses!
Thank you for taking the time to read this
Steve
(And no I am not looking for work! Have to much now. LOL)

Better to use someone else's boat just FYI.

Yes, welcome aboard SBR. I took the liberty of editing the wee typo in your thread title, as I'm sure you meant lurker..? And yes, using someone else's boat in return for your assistance in maintaining theirs is a really good idea for now. A fair trade, I'd say.

SRB - Your praise to TF members in post #1 is especially appreciated coming from a marine worker with 25 yrs. experience. I hope we as a group can continue to uphold our end of the bouy. I'm confident with 25 yrs. experience that you will be providing many good know-how factors. Welcome aboard!

Welcome, a tradesman is always going to be a warm addition. What are you views on anchors, flying bridges, windshields (Fore/aft)?

Humble? No strong opinion on anchors or flybridges? Are you sure about fitting in here?

At any rate, Welcome! I can't imagine how you managed to sit out all the various debates here, on a subject you know well, without jumping in. You're a better man than I.
