I agree with Tinker on this one as well
I also see over on the as you put it copy cat board
that the boats over there are more down to earth not 12 million dollar rides, less intimidation, feel more relaxed to ask questions about some things over there.
Not that im bashing anyone here or this board, dont get me wrong but I feel like a little bigger fish in a smaller pond over there. Not too many people with mega buck boats on that side. (granted that can change at any minute)
but sometimes on this board people tend to just not realize that some people dont make 800 grand a year and cant afford to throw caution to the wind and go out and buy a 37 outerlimits, 42 fountain, 2 HP500's , #6's and 3 sets of hydromotive props all in one day.
Then on the flip side of that, some members here have been overly exceptional in helping out the other guys, and I commend you all for that.
Sometimes it is tough to try to compete cause with this particular "sport" or "hobby" if you will, it really does just come down to the money factor.
Please dont start tearing me a new one, It was hard for me to even write some of this but I am sure some other people feel the same or similar.
