Best post ever.

BL, can come up with a way to contrast the text against the background? It's very difficult to read. I end up clicking 'n dragging the whole blog to make the text white.

I sure will hate to see you move out of the Tardis and into your cat when it's finished. I never get tired of marveling at how much space you have in such a small boat.

Hey bubbles, can you pull a screenshot for me? On my screen the text is all on a white background.
If you think Whiskeyjack is a big space in a small hull, wait until you see the cat.

I can do it when I get home. The screen is a repeating, tiled photo of your boat sailing on dark colored water. The text is black, so basically black on gray, and it makes for difficult reading.

Bubbles, I just pulled the plug on the tiling- let me know if it helps.
