Default Forum posting & reply rules

Dear, Offshore Only moderator & community
Over the last few years I found the OSO community to be very resourceful and knowledgeable site regarding the sport offshore boating. I am very grateful to this site and the community in helping me learn about the industry and to follow racing and poker runs.
Because of this I am now interested in posting or replying in the forums. I would not mind upgrading to the correct level of membership to do this, as I feel the wealth of knowledge and support far exceeds the cost of a membership.
However, I do not own an offshore boat or any type of boat, rather I am just a fan of the sport and I've always loved offshore powerboats.
Does a member of the forum community have to own, or have owned offshore boats to post or reply in the forums?
I ask this out of respect to the site and the type and level of your community members.

LOL, don't have to currently own a boat of any kind, or have to have owned one in the past, in order to post on the site. That would cut the number of members in half if you did.

Feel free to post away, but try to remember that there are others posting that do not own a performance boat, but sometimes post comments or opinions about them that imply they do. If you're looking to learn about various performance boats, you'll have to learn to decide who's comments come from personal experience, & who's comments are just based on assumptions, which may be inaccurate.
