If Sailnet is dead, why is this here?

SailNet customers,

I''m a newspaper reporter with The Post and Courier in Charleston, South Carolina. SailNet, which is headquartered here, filed for bankruptcy in late July and the government is now selling off its remaining assets. I am writing about the process, but I''m interested in what is happening to those of you who have been charged and have not yet received the ordered goods or a refund.

Please contact me at if you care to comment.

A couple of times in the past you have mentioned that you might be planning to compile all of your writings, on the boards, into book form. If you ever do that I for one would sure like to know about it.

So it''s still here huh? I guess I''ll have to check in now and again. I thought this board would be dead by now.

I''ve been using Sailing Anarchy... but this is a much more polite board than that one.

While I have not had as much time to be on the internet as of late, I currently ''hang out'' on the Cruising World General Discussion board, Cruisers Forum and have been watching Sailing Anarchy and SailJazz to see what happens with them.

Jeff ....Before this thing goes completely dormant.. let us all know where you plan to hang out after it''s over. Your insights, knowledge, and recommendations on sailing have been an invaluable learning tool for me and I am sure many others

I own 2 web sites and they are both pre-paid for 2 years.

That''s probably why this site is still up.

When the time runs out this site will not come back up.

Think of coins dropped in a commercial dryer - when the time runs out the joy is over.

I don''t think they are selling anything now. As was posted here last week, there is no one there. If there is no one there, they can''t be taking orders and they can''t be shipping anything out. I doubt that anyone would order anything with all that has been said here on the boards.

Where are you & your boat now?

My guess is that the server is receiving periodic attention for the simple reason that the business is run on it, they still have assets they are trying to retail during the initial stages of Chapter 9, 11 or whatever, and that it takes more money (which they donīt have) to disassociate the boards from the inventory control, product display and ordering functions.
