BoatDesignForum.net: dead or alive?

Boat design forums .net was one of my favorite websites.
But for the past month the website is inaccessible.
Does everyone else have the same problem, or is it just me?

It appears that the domain name has expired, so there is no longer any DNS record for it. Likely the person or company that had been hosting it has failed or couldn't afford to do so anymore.

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.

Too bad.
It was so comprehensive that it became a valuable asset to me.
And I had the impression that it was real popular too.

Must just be me, because every time i hit boatdesign.net my browser times-out.
Never did that before; just this last month.
Any suggestions that might help?
