It would be a great way to find someone to go sailing with.
Good suggestion. If we start getting a bunch of posts along that line, then I will.

justice is on a distinguished road
changing of the guard

Changing of the guard?

The Red Sea is closing on Lake County, as corruption’s foul stench emerges from the sacred still lake. The complicit players are doing what they can to cover the increasingly evident truth: elected officials by their own rules with little to no regard for the taxpayers who put them in business. But the crooked framework is cracking and people nationwide are seeing the putrid foul truth. In a feeble attempt to placate the poor Lake county public, the police chief has called upon media allies and other local figureheads to chair a debriefing – essentially a damage control session. After all, the DA Jon Hopkins put enormous time, effort and local taxpayer money (which is already tight in these recessive times) to try to convict an innocent sailor of manslaughter in an effort to protect a power hungry, booze-filled speed-demon in a high-powered speed boat – who happened to be the number two man in the police force. Sadly for them, he failed. Now the question is will anyone be held accountable for the untimely death of an innocent mother? Or will the people of Lake County continue to allow themselves to be bullied, victimized and deceived by those whose job it is to serve them.

In truth,

Jon Rightman

We try hard to keep the site free of spam. But we rely heavily on our members to help us find it.

If you or anyone else finds spam anywhere on the site (even in old posts/threads), we ask that it be reported via the "Report Post" button (the red/white triangular button in the bar across the top of each post), along with a quick note to the effect of "spam". Thanks.

painkiller will become famous soon enough
Can we start a forum called "Dreamers" to house all threads by people that don't know what they're doing but still want to cross an ocean? Any thread whose name suggests the theme "Am I Crazy" should automatically be put in that forum.

font size

have been part of many forums
check out cakewalk.com for an incredibly well designed forum

this forum is a wonderful resource, thank you
seems like a bunch of cool folks overall too

two suggestions:

MAKE THE FONT BIGGER!
LESS CLUTTER
- many of the ads are so tiny I simply would never look at them

my first instinct was to avoid this site as it is filled with so much info that it overwhelms the eye,
further, the main page breaks many rules of simple, effective, business design

but all the best with continuing to make it better

ps- why does the webpage have an almost TWO INCH border on both sides, blue colored, perhaps a huge waste of unused space?
there's a technical reason for this I presume, though
I'm far from a web expert myself-- just an artist/musician
yet sometimes us artists see things others do not, that's just what we do/who we are

once again, all the best

Brian:

I like the new charter referral thing you have added...but traversing it to find a boat in the area you want to sail in takes too much effort...Is there some search method I missed?

It would be great to say type in BVI and have all the operators in that local show up and knowone else.

Thanks

Thanks for the question. My understanding is it's there to accommodate computer monitor/screens of different widths. In any event, I see it at lots of other websites.
