Agreed, but I do want to point out that the reference to lines / ropes was me simply saying that's where I was alerted to her being of limited experience but not mocking her. Caltexflanc, you've been here long enough to understand that we have people from all levels of experience and from all area's of the world, some without a command of English and some just learning the ropes (pun intended) where it comes to boating. It's up to us to help bring them along. Some new member do waste our time. They're usually gone pretty fast, probably because they get bored or get their single question answered and don't want to also contribute. Then there are the trolls who come on here to promote their products. They get dealt with harshly and are gone amazingly fast thanks to the Admins. Then there are those who come on to show off that they know it all. Boy do they tend to get put in place fast.
