Images: 4 and the Whoosh Web Pages

Today I've reloaded the Sailing Web Home web pages which include the pages authored by Jack & Patricia Tyler on cruising in Europe. This reload is a complete re-format of the site. I originally published this site over 8 years ago using an early version of FrontPage and I used frames to provide a navigation window on each page. Over the years these navigation windows have became more and more difficult to maintain.
So when I recently upgraded from FrontPage 2003 to the MS follow-on product, ExpressionWeb, I elected to reformat the site and do away with the frames. I hope this new format will make the navigation easier for anyone using the website and I hope it will make it easier for me to maintain and update the site.
For those of you who have bookmarked the articles written by Jack & Patricia Tyler (the Whoosh Pages) or any of my content - those bookmarks will still work for the time being. I have not removed any of the old pages. However I encourage anyone who has bookmarked any pages on the site and expects to continue to reference those pages go to the website home page, Sailing Web Home , and navigate to the new pages that you previously bookmarked. Actually I hope the navigation is simple enough with the new format that you only need to bookmark the home page.
I would appreciate feedback (via the email address on each page of the website) from anyone who finds the new format difficult to navigate or read or they cannot find previous content considered of value.

Web site looks nice and operates quite well. Web Expression does a nice job. Lots of good content there too.
