Frequently Asked Questions
Please read the entire thread carefully before posting.
If you participate in this board regularly, you know that there are several questions that people ask that have come up before. So in this thread, I'd like to see very simple posts with bold-faced headings, that offer very short explanations to those often asked questions. Alternatively, if it cannot be addressed briefly, please link to the thread in which it has been discussed ad nauseum. This way, this thread will be easier to search. If someone has posted on a topic and you think they've forgotten something, please don't post an adendum. Rather, PM them and ask them to add it to their post or, if they've linked it, go to the link and post your info there. Also, don't post thanking previous posters for the info or otherwise respond to posts. I'm just hoping that this will remain something that's easy to scroll through.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
