How To Search Sailnet's Forums
Since Sailnet's internal search function isn't usable for most people, I thought I'd post a tip on how to search for past posts and threads on Sailnet using Google.
It is pretty easy to do.
First, open a web browser window to Google
. If you have a search toolbar that uses Google, you can use that instead.
Then, in the search box, type your keywords and then type
and click on search or hit return.
This will cause Google's search engine to search just Sailnet's forum pages for your keywords.
While, you can't search for posts by specific username—it will generally give you better results than Sailnet's search function will.
For example, a search for "Froli Springs"
on sailnet brings up this
A search using Google for "Froli Springs site:www.sailnet.com/forums"
brings up this
I hope this helps.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
