Most boat owners work on their own boats - whether to maintain or refit with new or upgraded equipment. This often requires a lot of specialized knowledge and information. Or maybe you're cruising and need information about destinations, navigation, or seamanship. You can ask others around your boatyard or club and go with a limited range of opinion and experience, or you can join an online community of sailors with an app such as Cruisers Forum and gain from the knowledge base of over 84,000 boaters currently. Check it out if you haven't already, as this group can save you many hours of frustration or other searching for information. Another valuable resource for cruisers is the Active Captain Interactive Cruising Guidebook.
