I strongly agree about googling and dead threads.

I get a lot of my information from searches on various sailing sites and I think adding pertinent information to a "dead thread" helps people like me even if the OP is no longer interested.

The thread becomes a record of interesting information on a topic and people may add to it later because they don't read every sailnet thread every week.

When I add to a thread I know is old I try to start with "I know this thread is old but I thought I would add..." to clue other people into the fact that the OP may no longer be watching.

In that vein: I know this is an old thread but, the active Wauquiez owners group is now hosted on yahoo groups here
