    I am very new to all of this and trying to gain some knowledge. I remember my Father used to build small fishing boats but I never got the opportunity to learn from him.

    Well, you're in the right place! Just don't listen to that retread sailor Safewalrus. :p

    Why not start by asking some specific questions - millions will pitch in to help....

    Yeah - as Trev said there's many here who will help as much as we can, mind you down here in the dungeon we do have a strange sense of humour, but if you can handle it we'll tell it like it is -no frills............So when you going to start -make all the mistakes you want -we've all been there. Oh and don't worry to much about some of the strange mutterings we actually like each other, mostly

    Welcome to the forum then - stick around watch and read fora bit then dive in - you've done the hard bit -your first post, the rest is easy, enjoy!

    Just one thing, tis normal to start your own thread to get to know people, considered kinda bad form to pinch somebody elses 'welcome mat' but don't worry to much your here now ad that's what counts!

    hmilesjr, IANSON1, welcome to both of you - hope you find what you seek.... Jeees Safie, that protocol never stopped you from "spattering" all over the place hehehe......

    Ian, ignor that old walrus, he is in a gruff sort of way quite a friendly old beast - (we are sort of troglodites - mainly reside in the dungeons) 'cause we are temporarily boatless........

    Protocol Mas, moi? No I'm outside all that stuff - just bollock others who should know better is all -once you get past a certain level you get to be like that, just don't know what that level is, but I guess I'm past it - and I ain't just talking here either!!
