More seriously I have seen so much nonsense offered as answers, particularly about electrical, radio and electronics, many of them downright dangerous. Oddly the more outrageously wrong the answer the more vigorously the originator would argue its merit. I gave up on it long ago. That's the main re...

I'm curious as to why everyone seems to have negative views on the subject, anyone think it's a good thing ? and if not, why ?

There are certainly apprenticeships available now, but I'm not sure about "older" people. Not that you are old Dave, but you get my drift. Not sure I would want to start another apprenticeship again at my age, but I know what you mean :) , at least they are realising that they're going to...

Couldn't agree more and when we can, we have a freind who is a qualified instructor willing to take us on, so sort of all in hand for the not too distant future. But until the course is done, or experience gained, lots of people are lost when they see strange new words and it puts them off sailing i...

Your perfect weather

From a mobo's point of view, flat calm with minimum wind used to be very nice, but without some wind I can see how a hankie boat could get boring, so what's your perfect weather?. Please don't blame Simon if he can't arrange it :) Round here I will be looking at travelling from the Wash around to as...

Re: Well . . .

. A new to sailing forum would be a great idea in some ways, but it woujld get very repetitive. Better perhaps a series of articles on the site to which people can be directed. Anyone wanting to write/contribute to a 'starting sailing' series please get in touch. Nick, thanks for the reply, very he...

Tonight it was steak and gooey spuds, much nicer than it sounds :) Peal and slice the spuds (about 1/3" thick) and boil them to taste, I prefer slightly under cooked but it's personal preference, then drain them thoroughly. While draining, make up a basic bechamel sauce (look it up :) ) and add...

Lots of jobs going - provided you are an oil related engineer! Just a slight thread drift, but why do they insist that people are already 'oil related' ?. I've applied for a few jobs in the business but always been rejected because of that. Don't they realise that one day, there won't be anyone lef...

Fish of your choice (salmon is good, tuna with lemon and lime juice is better, but fresh is best so maggot drowners win here) Trouble is, I know nothing about fish on the end of a hook. I'd first have to learn what to do with it before putting it in the pan! Slowly fried in butter Rosti potato's co...

Fish of your choice (salmon is good, tuna with lemon and lime juice is better, but fresh is best so maggot drowners win here) Slowly fried in butter Rosti potato's cooked in the same pan, best if you use a ring to hold the spud in place (presentation works every time) Spring greens cooked in another...

What's a preventer ? What's a clew ? What's a cringle ? What's a ....... Nick, I know you're trying to avoid having too many forums, but how about a 'learner' forum, where those of us moving into the hankie zone can ask such questions without being ridiculed as they seem to be elsewhere. Elsewhere b...
