I just recived this email from the new owners of Sailnet. That will teach me to jump to conclusions.
Pre-Press Release: marine.com and SailNet tie the knot (a bowline of course!)

We want you, our Community, to know first.
It is with great pleasure and lots of excitement that we announce a new Captain at the helm of your SailNet Community. After several months in the doldrums, the southern winds have propelled SailNet north to merge with marine.com. Providing boaters with name-brand products and top-rated service since 1997, marine.com is one of the Web''s leading e-commerce sites.
Sailnet''s decade-long legacy of serving the sailing community will continue. The interactive forums, articles and other links on the SailNet.com website are operational today. Over the next couple of weeks we will re-launch an upgraded website, activate the SailNet email lists and introduce you to a new and expanded sailing store.
Most importantly, with the solid backing of marine.com, access to the SailNet Community continues to be FREE.
The New Crew is fully committed.
We value your continued support of the SailNet Community which has been recognized as "Best of the Web" for content, resources and community four years in a row by Forbes Magazine. SailNet''s new Crew understands that it is because of you that this recognition has been bestowed.
We would like to hear your thoughts on the SailNet Community and your suggestions for future enhancements. Please visit www.sailnet.com to contact us. We look forward to serving your needs.
CEO, marine.com / SailNet
For what its is worth, I doubt that I will pay to join the Sailjazz boards.
