    I only post when I have something relevant to say but my my favorite is to post pics when I have some. Most of the time I lurk and check out what's going on.
    Elvis was a boater too

    This is not original, but wanted to join in...Like many of you all, I do both: lurk and post when I feel like I have something to contribute. Since I registered on OSO last year, I've learned much more than I can contribute. Looking forward to more...
    Three things a good co-pilot should remember to say to his Captain:
    1) "Nice landing, sir!"
    2) "I've got the next round."
    3) "I'll take the ugly one!!"

    You have to be a gold or platinum OSO member to vote in the polls - I'll guess that most lurkers probably can't vote.
    Incorrect statement, you have to be a registered member to vote, not Gold or Platinum.

    FYI- our experience had been that most lurkers don't respond to polls but if you are really interested we have those statistics.

    There are many more (10x) the number of lurkers than posters. We wish that the lurkers would register so we could anticipate band width usage. It is also easier to schedule harware upgrades before it is too late.

    Lurk most of the time

    Average post count is about 5 posts per month. Read posts almost daily. This site has been extremely valuable in learning from those who truly are experienced in this industry. My only boating expertise is in spending money on a project that seems to never end and what not to do. I participate in those threads.

    I post, never lurk. This site has done everything from get thru tough times, get great advice, meet great friends, and even find the boat I currently have, I also sold a boat here. After a National search for my boat I found the only one here. This site is like a great friend, always there for you. Thanks OSO.
