As a rule I will only respond if I can help but I am on here just about every day sometime 3 or more times a day if I find something interesting.I prefer this site over the other one because there are a lot more serious offshore boaters here and have learned alot.This is the reason I LURK
Pleased to meet ya, where in MI is your shop, we are always happy to know a good marine shop.

I'm mostly a lurker, but post now and then. I actually read OSO for years before I registered. Had I registered back when I discovered the site, I would have been in the top 1000 members. Oh well...

One day I'll pay the money and get the pics, but now it's like a game for me to see how long I can last with out paying.

I lurk every night at home & I try to lurk when I can at work. Minimum of an hour per day I would suspect..

I think I would post more but I hate my screen name.

Maybe true. I just have this thing about paying for web sites. OSO is the only one I've even considered so eventually I'll buck up. It's just a matter of when. Actually, once I pay, It'll suck cause then I'll spend way more time here lowering my work productivity even more. Maybe that's the source of my resistance...

I'm sure I sound like a cheap bastage, but to me it's the principle of the thing. I'm a Donzi owner and so I contribute significantly to donzi.net which is supported only be members' donations. Thanks for the reply.
