Thumbs down Forum Search

I hate to complain, but really, the forum Search is almost worthless. Unless I'm missing something, or didn't see some help or something, the search has no ability to look for a complete phrase, for example. So that if you are looking for information on "Catalina 34" with or without quotes, you'll get any post with the word "Catalina" and any post with "34" in it. Yet we frequently tell folks, "Why didn't you search for that?"

It would be great to be able to direct the use of the Key words a little more: complete phrase or any word, all posts with these words but not these words. And if all this great functionality is there and I've missed it, please let me know and I'll stuff my words between two pieces of bread and happily eat them.

I too am finding way too broad of a response.
