sailorjim99 is an unknown quantity at this point
Simon.
I am actually a painting contractor and you mentioned touching wet paint.

When I paint in public areas like shops, bus shelters etc., I actually paint a board and scratch out a sign saying "WET PAINT ON SURFACE. IF YOU MUST TOUCH WET PAINT, PLEASE TOUCH THIS BOARD".

Without fail, someone touches it..

NO> I didn't click the link.

Hey Dog,
This spam is a problem..There must be a way to control it. It is always the first post from a newbie.
Perhaps the MOD. can arrange for ALL first posts to be censored?

Jim.

The probelm is in the registration procedure. On other boards I've noticed that in signing up you need to give a brief blurb on your sailing experience or somesuch and/or there is a specific code to be entered. Apparently this can put a stop to auto registration and posting of Spam.

It's amazing how old this Thread is, doesn't any one share or charter their boats anymore? If one puts up a posting that their is available, is that considered Spam?

Ok, I realize this post is over 6 years old, I just can't help it.

I sure would like to see a schooner with an LOA of just over 6 feet that can accommodate 10 people.

Must be REALLY friendly...
