New Islander Web Site

Be aware that a new website has been established for Islander owners. Please see Islander Sailboats

Remember that it's new and the content will fill with time. We're based out of the Vancouver/Vancouver Island area of British Columbia. See the web site for more details.

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.
