1) FIX THE SEARCH ENGINE! I know you've got to be loosing business because of it. On more than one occasion, I've given up going through 100+ slow-loading pages and decided to pay the extra $$$ at a different (less liked) web-site...
2) In my opinion, you've got too many adds. When it takes longer to load the page than it does to play a hand of solitaire, it's too long. When I first discovered Sailnet, the top TEN forums were displayed. Now, we only get the top FIVE...and a whole bunch of adds. I understand adds generate money, but enough is enough already.
