sailboatlistings blocked

OK, many of you folks know I work overseas. Over the last few months..., being a part of sailnet has been awesome. I hope to meet and or sail with many of the folks I have met on Sailnet...

While here in Pakistan, I spend a lot of time looking over used sailboats online. I actually had one picked out was ready to buy but someone beat me to it. Such is the life of an expat.

While online from my office or house, I am able to search sailboatlistings.com, however when in the field, I am blocked by a simple note that says in essence... "you cant shop here." I actually spend most of my time in the field.... When I can get on the site, I see no place on the website that allows me to contact the owner or operator of the site. Does anyone have an email address? Is there a way around this "Block"... perhaps, but with no way to contact the folks over there it makes for long nights in hotels without pubs, dance halls or other entertainment.

It is my hope to buy a boat before I return to the USA in December or January. There is a good chance (80/20) that my next work site will be in the Caribbean.... I'd like to sail there. Kind of hard if I cant find a boat where my sailing friends can go look at it for me....

Thanks for any help.

Wander...

One of the pages says:
Quote:
If you would like to include a photograph of your sailboat but do not have a scanner, we would be happy to scan and include your photo(s) for you. Just send your photo(s) to:

SailboatListings.com
c/o Boat Design Net
Box 52
Beaver Island, MI 49782

Include ten dollars ($10.00) per photo to cover our time, your email address and/or phone number so we can match up your photo with the listing you have added to our database, and your return mailing address. Payment via check or money order is fine.

Please make checks payable to
Boat Design Net
It appears that Sailboatlistings and Boatdesign.net are related. You might try:
Contact boat design net

There's also a contact form at the end of the SailboatListings help page:
Sailboat Listings - sailboats for sale


Finally, if you can't get to either of them, Boatdesign.net has the following E-mail address:
webmaster@boatdesign.net

Hope this helps!

Re: sailboatlistings blocked

Thanks Jimgo, I'll try to get through using the email. Perhaps they have a login that will get me around the google block.

Take care!

Re: sailboatlistings blocked

I wonder if it would be possible to access the site using the tor browser:
https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en

The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.
If so, it would solve your problems with that site as well as any others that are blocked or restricted. I can say it is easy to install and use.
