    Vulkyn, if you keep looking you will in time have a huge collection of valuable articles. The key is to research all aspects to boating. As you progress other things will begin to catch your interest and after that some more... the good news - and the bad news - is the list is almost endless :D

    But it's great, interesting and learnfull, you can measure your head each night and make sure it doesn't swell too much from the stuff you pump in it ;)

    simple advice

    "They" always told be to be patient and research completely any new idea or supply BEFORE purchasing or cutting holes in the boat etc. Sounded simple enough at the time and I recall those exortation's fondly looking back at how many things fell by the way side!

    My head is swelling so i guess thats a good thing! (or it could be the bump i got from hitting my head yesterday.)

    A very good link for boating safety!! (its very helpful to read prior to boat building as it might shine some light on important considerations!)
