We haven't been very active on Sailnet over the last several months because we've been working hard on additions to our website, "The Frugal-Mariner
We have added:
- Traveling the Intra Coastal Waterway
- Canvas Care
- Photo Gallery
- 366 Reasons to take the day off & Go Sailing (Excuses really)
- Fun Clothing
- Books for Boaters
- Naming your Boat
- Boat renaming Ceremony
- Boat Math (Nothing Complex here)
- Sailing Poetry
- Boating Education
- VHF Radio (Lots and lots of information here)
- Coast Guard Courtesy Examination
- Float Plan
- Your First Boat
- Mail Forwarding
- The Cruising Dream
- Beaufort Scale
- VHF Channels - USA
- VHF Channels - Canada
- VHF Channels - International
The first one, Traveling the Intra-Coastal Waterway is for all of you folks who are heading south for the first (or second or third) time this year - tips on How Not to Run Aground. We hope you find it useful.
The fourth one down, 366 Reasons to Take the Day Off and Go Sailing, is just for fun - and I think it may be appropriate for the type of humor we see often on Sailnet.
Some of it, like Boat Math, we still have lots of additions.
If any of you see any errors, please let us know either in comments here or through the Contact Us page on Frugal Mariner.
Also, we'd greatly appreciate any input in how it looks on various browsers. We're not professionals at this, and only use Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. So how it looks on a MAC or in any other browser, we haven't a clue.
I apologize for the blatant self-promotion - but I think the site has a lot of good information for boaters and would like to spread the word. Yeah, there's a couple of ads there for some T-shirts we designed and some photography of ours, but you don't have to click on it if you don't want to. (Feel free to look at it though - no obligation.)
Also (Oh, no, not another
also) if any of you have any blogs or websites of your own, we'd appreciate a link. Any link helps in the search engine standings, and maybe someday we'll have enough traffic to sell ads.
Thank you all very much. Sailnet has been a great resource for us.
