Perhaps because 30 is the age of denial.

Center Cockpit, Aft Cockpit, Pilot House, Deck Salon...which is best?
etc. etc. etc.

Simple as that, it's so they can target marketing for the users.

Yeah...I thought about that Chuck...but the response rates don't give anyything close to the demographic reliability needed. Better to do that stuff at sign on.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

They may very well do that stuff on sign on, but by doing polls like this, they figure out "WHOM" is really doing the posting etc vs sign ons. So one could skew the advertising etc accordingly.

Marty, Are you implying that people, other than the actual signed-on members may be making posts?

TB,

No that is not my implication, it is, while you may have a certain demographic of whom is signing on to post, but whom of that group actually posts is another sub group with in the BIG picture/group. Hence why cam is probably not sure that these surveys work for the big or small picture depending upon how the survey is used etc.

Admin.,
You guys didn't get the hint whan you asked what size my family was. The answer is the same; none of your damn business.

Well, I can give management a hint. Don't bother trying to sell anything to the 40 to 50 year olds. The ones with teenagers. We're using duct tape to patch the sails, clothes line for running rigging, substituting bondo for fiberglass, and cutting every other corner to make ends meet! I just want to hear from someone who knows how to explain to a teenager that the power button has TWO positions, and has done so SUCCESSFULLY.

I would have to say that I'm 61 but feel like I'm 40, I live on a 1971 36' Trojan Tri-cabin, sail a 25' catalina, and rebuilding a 1971 62' Benetti motoryacht.
Oh yeah and the reason I can do all this! I don't have a wife to drive me Dinghy.
