Some good reasons (I could think of) for creating this User Forum:
One always needs some more information !
 Man kann immer zusätzliche Informationen gebrauchen!
Handbooks etc. give never enough details !
 Handbücher haben immmer zu wenig Einzelheiten!
Mistakes can be costly !
 Fehler können teuer werden!
It is always easier (and cheaper) to learn from other peoples mistakes !
 Es ist immer einfacher (und billiger) von den Fehler anderer zu lernen!
Why re-invent the wheel, when the guy next to you has already done it ?
 Warum das Rad nochmals erfinden, das hat doch schon jemand getan!
And of course, there these little things the manufacturer doesn't talk about !
 Und natürlich sind da die Kleinigkeiten, von denen der Hersteller nicht redet!
I want to sail and not ponder about problems !
 Ich möchte segeln und nicht über Probleme nachdenken !
 - - - ! Alors, Let's exchange Information ! - - -
I hope we can all benefit from this User Forum and can enjoy a better sailing!
