Meh. I came, I saw, I shrugged and left.

What purpose does your site serve? What missing niche does it fill? We could use a new repository of detailed technical information... but your site doesn't look to do that. Do we need another forum? No. Do we need a new mailing list? Maybe, but yours is overly difficult to join.

You need to know what you're doing to create a new site. Not in a technical web / HTML / programming sense - though that helps a lot - but in a "what am I doing with this site" sense. It does not appear that you have that.

thanks for pulling the info together. I had been in contact with Brian several times and he committed to providing me with all of the .com info, however, he never followed through.

No one is forcing you to join. Than you for your helpful insight. Stay with Sailnet.

Hi Bert,

We haven't met but I'm on the local meetup.com group and am going sailing with Bruce Stott on Sunday in Oak Bay on my new (to me) I21. I noticed that the dot ca site is no longer hosted, so I started Islander Sailboat dot Info to try and gather up the bits from the old dot com and dot ca sites and add a new twist, including my sailboat blog. Third time's a charm? I made a forum for kicks, but I'm not sure that part will take off, I'm a bigger fan of pinterest and meetup.com myself.

Anyways, I got down this SailNet rabbithole while trying to figure out the vertical clearance for my I21 seem like it's greater than 26.5', but I think I may need to add the freeboard on top of that... Got any thoughts on that?

All the best, Bruce

You need to add measurement from lwl to the mast step to caculate air draft and add a foot to allow for errors in measurements and the anchor light.
