Default New guy here

Hello. Just found this forum while looking for something else.
im a former skipper, been out of the loop for ten years now and missing the water and boat life.
All of my experience is in small yachts, 45'-85', brown water and near shore cruising. Florida to New England.
Don't know if I can contribute much, technology has left me way behind in a decade, but I'm still interested in what's going on in the Marine world.

A few more rules around here. Don't EVER mention Captain Nate. An airplane will indeed take off from a conveyor belt. Wedding facilities are taboo in back yards. Driving in the left lane will get you burned at the stake. When shopping for a new tow vehicle don't count out the Rav 4 before test driving it. The local mental patient here is Redbank Steve, if you happen across him just smile and nod. Commenting in the funny picture thread is only tolerated if you attach a picture to go with it.

What did I miss?

Don't take anything personal and develop a thick hide and you will have fun. Some good folks here. A few terds too but they quickly rise to the surface so you can ignore them. Welcome!

Hey - wait a damn minute. Them would be fighting words, but the word would actually be "turds."

Turtle hit most of the important ones. I will also add that it is pointless to ever mention your WOT speed or the estimated size of waves in your posts. Just leave them out unless you want to derail the thread immediately. Oh, and the girl in Tampa will always be looking for someone to take her out on the boat.

Is that why they are called "floaters"?

Ok, I'm wasting one of my daily posts here. I'll respond to more later.
If I'm not banned!

Thanks!

Why would I have a pic of my wife for you? I have to look at her cellulite covered *** every freaking night! I don't need or want any pictures!

Of course the boats tippy. I can't get my fat***** wife to just sit her butt in the center!

Ok. Good, I can do this. Whoops. Sorry, I tried but I can't get a view of my neighbors house from my shower.

Now, how do I get the wet curlies out of my darn ipad, smart guy?
