I have enjoyed being on a forum for the type of boat I own (MacGregor 26X). It has been really helpful in dealing with repair and performance issues. My wife and I have, also, enjoyed our travel trailer (Puma 26 RLSS) for the past four years, but I have found it challenging sometimes to deal with technical and repair issues. I do depend on RV service technicians for the hard stuff, but there is a lot of routine maintenance and minor repairs that come up for which it would be nice to have a "chat" with some one who might be able to help. I just found this forum and am hopeful that it will be a resource and that I can contribute, as well. We have four major trips under our belt--one trip from Florida to California, Utah, and Colorado, and three trips to Michigan. My wife and I are both retired Navy, and we worked in the mental health field for over 30 years. Hello, everybody!
