I spoke with CD the other day... The new changes are so top secret that he can't even tell himself...

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.

They will have a very direct benefit to everyone that is passionate about our 'sport'.

We look forward to bringing these things together for you and making the site better than it already is. Again, many of these things have never been done before... to the best of my knowledge, on any site - ever.

Stay tuned.

Folks,

I'm very sorry to report that management has quashed CD's proposed "nude sailing" sub-forum. We knew it would be tough convincing them that this sort of "exposure" would "have a very direct benefit to everyone that is passionate about our 'sport'" (they are not as susceptible to marketing hype as we presumed.)

Nor did they view favorably his "All Catalina, All the Time" sub-forum proposal.

I always felt the "Barbecue Channel" concept was a bit weak, and so apparently did they.

So the truth is, we're back at square one. But don't worry, we're busy brainstorming. Trust me when I say CD is a veritable font of ideas. One of them is bound to float.

his ideas may float...like a 'baby ruth' in the pool; but they will never leave the dock. He has experience in that department

Talking That's Just Mean

I had my suspicions about this Sailnet stuff. The Moderators try to act so smart and reasonable.

Now I'm sure of it. Your all a bunch of meanies; and cruel people, who like to tease the naive and gullible.

That is so cool...

Yep, you all had me pulling for a Porn forum also.

Hey Winder - go to the "Living Aboard - and Sex" thread. It's as close to porn as we get around here.

I have already seen one "considerable change".
I was not on the site for a few days and my rep went up from 3 to 4.
This is new and was never done before in Internet.
The less you participate the higher rep points you get.
Other then that I did not notice any change.
