The IC30A is alive and well and has its own website - International Catalina 30 Association . It is filled with current info on C30 (and C309) specifications, class rules, events, ships store, for sale, owner mods, fixes, questions and answers.

The Yahoo email list (catalina30) is NOT problematic and DOES allow posting of pictures with emails. It has extensive photo albums and documents.

Unlike Sailnet and other previous servers YAHOO has been a stable home for C30 members for several years now. There are over 1,000 listers enjoying the banter over c30 issues. Our members enjoy the free flow of email messages compared to the logon requirements and strict structure of the antiquated forum approach.

If you have a C30 question, why ask a general forum or a server with only a few owners?
Please come and join the experts at yahoo and support the IC30A by joining and receiving our 100 page member magazine. (and a 400 page tech manual.) No other source can offer you these benefits.

Hello Max Munger - Treasurer and Webmaster!

The IC30A is a definitely a great source of info. You guys are doing a great job. However, it is a static website. That might make the site and association appear dead. Especially today when people cling to their user interaction with websites.

For example, yesterday I submitted my boat and info to go into the owner's listing on the IC30A website. Today it is not listed there yet. Now that is no big crisis. But..people have grown accustomed to being able slap things up on the net immediately (It's all Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter's fault...haha).

Have there been any thoughts over at the IC30A about turning your website into a big bad ass site with a forum???
