Can i suggest an extension of the home page portal.(extra page etc)
As this site becomes more popular I find the "portal page" fills up much quicker than normal.
I am based in Australia
and there are a number of Australian and New Zealands on this site.
I find that in the last couple of months any new post made (because of the time differance) disappears from the "portal" before USA/Canadian members have a chance to see it.
I have received a lot of very good advise from this forum over the years in regard to boating
issues but when I do post a query it is nice a to get as many different points of view as possible.
Just a suggestion.
