Carricko, welcome to TF. Also, what kind of boat do you have, where do you do your boating, etc.

Also #2, you really need to know that we have a standing rule on TF: without pictures it just didn't happen.

Seriously, we all like to see photos of where people boat, their boat, and them using it.

So welcome aboard.

Hi all, thanks for the welcome and apologies for the late reply.
A brief summary: Now aged 72 and not in the best of health, my boating is limited to the internet.
Originally from a UK East coast fishing port, my introduction to boating at the age of 14 was two days and a night on a North Sea seine netter, for which I got paid two cod fillets.
In the late '70's I moved to the South coast and have since owned a succession of boats (Grp and wood) the biggest being a 28 foot open boat with a Lister engine in the wheelhouse. Joined the Aux.Coastguard and learned a LOT. Have enjoyed some great days and nights in the Solent area just fishing and 'being there'.
I enjoy the TF site for the information etc, and discussions about boats like the Great Harbour range. All very enlightening.

Welcome Steve. As Doug said. Enjoy the boating vicariously through the forum. There is no forum rule that says you must be a boat owner.
