How about Saijazz?

It isn''t the money. It''s the community. I will show up where the majority lands, and in the meantime I''ll cast my lot with Sailnet. That''s where I started. Lee

How about Saijazz?

From the Charleston Post and Courier:

"...Bankruptcy Trustee Kevin Campbell said his office will dig deeper into the company''s history in coming months, looking for signs of possible embezzlement or large chunks of cash going to nonoperational items. The venture capitalists who bankrolled MarineNet have hired a company to do similar research. Campbell said his office would likely question the Boyles in coming months."

That doesn''t sound too good to me. Nothing against the Boyle''s, but I think I''ll wait a couple of months before thinking about signing up for their service.

I don''t think I will ever pay a subsciption to read a messageboard. I have purchased from Sailnet because of this board and was looking at buying during the meltdown, but I fortunately found out about the shipping issues before I sent in my Visa number.
Aside from the messageboard here, I enjoyed reading the articles on the site and I have purchased many of the books written by them.

Who is to say it won''t be just like the "Old Sailnet". I may be wrong, but when the old owners of a bankrupt company get out of one venture then jump right back into the same game under a different non-bankrupt name, it really worries me. I don''t think I will have anything to do with the "Old" company under a different name. Let''s allow the old crew to "just fade away" and start new with At least we will probably get our merchandise.

Just FYI, the "our team" listing is that of MindDrivers LLC (not the staff insofar as I can tell). MindDrivers LLC appears to be a venture capital firm (despite their claims to the contrary) that installs their own management personnel into the acquisitions for which they arrange (broker) financial investors. Not at all an unusual arrangement insofar as private equity investment in commercial acquisitions.

Well now we know. The ride continues.

I also got the same message by e-mail this morning, I would guess we all did.

I just got this nice e-mail from the new owners of Sailnet. That will teach me to jump to a conclusion.
