if a disorganized rabble equals a committee... then they ALL are in my experience... and my standard answer when they start making *in progress* changes is;
YOU CAN"T AFFORD TO PAY ME TO DO THAT!!

and then they all look at each other and go "oh, yeah, that's why we didn't put it in the original plan"

Joyous, let me tell you!

and there isn't really any such beast as a nice simple web site, only ones that ain't been upgraded yet ; -)

Give us some time and we'll get it sorted out. Apologies.

I turn up in the sailing forums also, smarty pants.

But I can't be havin a jammed rudder or an escapee halyard everyday of the week, and I am still using all the fine advice I got for bilge pumps and water systems. Got to get that done before I start anything new

; -)

I quite like the way things are organised...it's fun to navigate through it all...because signposts are not too digital you can end up somewhere quite unexpected and interesting. I like it.
