Sorry Gaz, but I don’t understand the question.

You joined in 2006, but you have been a member since September 1988?

Dlanderson joined in 2010, but has been a member since Aug. 2011?

Hello,
Yeah that's funny, I've been a member since before the internet.

My join date says 2004 but if I remember correctly everybody's start date was changed to the day Heath set up the "new" BB.

I believe my joined date is correct. I bought my 2005 :macm: at the 2004 Annapolis boat show, and picked it up in December.

2009 for me, when I bought the boat. Lurked for a couple of years before that, so I'll claim at least 10 years.

Long enough to miss contributors like Mastreb and YukonBob...no wait, Y.B. still can't get the Mac out of his blood and participates Macless, to our benefit.
Long enough to see some fantastic people bow out due to age or health, long enough to see some sad changes to families and relationships, but also many joyful changes...new lives, new happy boat owners (or happy sellers, in some cases).

Here's to the next 10 years, God willing (or Karma willing, or whatever floats your boat).

Feels weird, but I feel like I know most of you personally, without ever having met you.

Radio Check strength 5.

Looks like Aug 2010 for me... I guess i stalked for about a year before officially joining. Hard to believe it’s been so long! Been one of the wisest decisions I’ve made. ;)
