I can confirm that Andy R owns the forum. Since 2004 he's been providing this service
to the cruising community, working long hours to make it the predominant cruiser's forum on the internet
. Every time we have a software
upgrade, a new feature such as the iPad
application, a new component such as the Cruiser's Wiki, Andy is the fellow who develops it. He's the guy who sets the vision and tone of this site, working with the administrators and moderators to try to get the forum just right. He's the guy who the Board of Advisers advises.
When the users requested a CF burgee, Andy was the fellow stuck with having to design it, having to order it, and having to come up with a system to distribute it.
If this whole thing seems like a scam to you, it's probably because you are unaccustomed to the generosity Andy R has shown the registered users who have helped build this site. Those who have been designated "CF Supporters" will be able to pick up a CF burgee at Andy's cost. He won't make a dime for the work he's put into the design, acquisition, and distribution of these burgees to CF Supporters.
That's who Andy is.
