Thank you to all the people who have read this blog at some time or other since I started it almost 7 years ago. There wouldn't have been much point in writing 2,143 posts if nobody ever read them.
Thank you to everyone who has left comments on this blog, even to those of you who chose to remain anonymous and even to those of you who chose to insult me. Hey, at least I got a reaction. But a special warm "Thank You" to all of you who entertained me with your helpful suggestions and amusing comments and provocative arguments.
Thank you to all the people who have subscribed to the blog in one form or another. It has amazed me that so many people have wanted to read my drivel.
Thank you to all the people who write the blogs that I read. Some of you have been acknowledged in my blogroll. A few of you were even honored in one of my occasional Top Ten Blog lists. I have learned so much about boating and blogging and writing and life generally from reading your blogs.
Thank you to those who have become friends over the years. I've met a few of you, but there are so many more that I only know through our online interactions. Maybe we will meet in person one day soon.
