I hope you won''t be offended if I suggest you get your priorities right - In light of yopur recent difficulties, I go back to skydiving & sailing, and put working "on hold".
I''ve never heard of anyone complaining, whilst on their death-bed, that they wished they''d spent more time at work.
Best of luck in all things

I don''t contribute much, but I check in daily to see if there is any new info. Will be sailing away from Guam soon (as long as no more super-typhoons put my boat on the rocks again). It has been a great site for info and amusement...

Mary, do you offer a website with info on sailing/cruising in Guam? If not, would you be open to an email about it? I ask because my son may be stationed there, in which case I''d like to consider including it in a Pacific run. Many thanks...

Sailnet
Online retailer''s remaining assets sold in bankruptcy court

The Post and Courier - Charleston, S.C.
Author: KYLE STOCK
Date: Oct 28, 2005
Start Page: B.9
Section: BUSINESS
Text Word Count: 645


The sail-making unit of the business, AirForce Sails, was bought for $26,000 by Cheryl Boyle, who ran MarineNet with her husband, [Sam Boyle], until late 2004, and Samuel Levin, an area real estate agent who is listed as both a creditor and a shareholder in the MarineNet bankruptcy.

Randy Draftz, a former MarineNet employee, bought the rest of the company''s retail inventory for $29,350. Draftz, who handled MarineNet''s online catalog for about six years, incorporated his own company in December. He plans to sell the inventory with other sailing gear on his new Web site, www.charlestonyachting.com.

[Kevin Campbell] said his office will dig deeper into the company''s history in coming months, looking for signs of possible embezzlement or large chunks of cash going to nonoperational items. The venture capitalists who bankrolled MarineNet have hired a company to do similar research. Campbell said his office would likely question the Boyles in coming months.

I just recived this email from the new owners of Sailnet. That will teach me to jump to conclusions.

Pre-Press Release: marine.com and SailNet tie the knot (a bowline of course!)
Date: Tuesday November 1, 2005

We want you, our Community, to know first.

It is with great pleasure and lots of excitement that we announce a new Captain at the helm of your SailNet Community. After several months in the doldrums, the southern winds have propelled SailNet north to merge with marine.com. Providing boaters with name-brand products and top-rated service since 1997, marine.com is one of the Web''s leading e-commerce sites.

Sailnet''s decade-long legacy of serving the sailing community will continue. The interactive forums, articles and other links on the SailNet.com website are operational today. Over the next couple of weeks we will re-launch an upgraded website, activate the SailNet email lists and introduce you to a new and expanded sailing store.

Most importantly, with the solid backing of marine.com, access to the SailNet Community continues to be FREE.

The New Crew is fully committed.
We value your continued support of the SailNet Community which has been recognized as "Best of the Web" for content, resources and community four years in a row by Forbes Magazine. SailNet''s new Crew understands that it is because of you that this recognition has been bestowed.

We would like to hear your thoughts on the SailNet Community and your suggestions for future enhancements. Please visit www.sailnet.com to contact us. We look forward to serving your needs.

Rob Proctor
CEO, marine.com / SailNet
www.sailnet.com

For what its is worth, I doubt that I will pay to join the Sailjazz boards.

Jeff
