One 'ideal world' request though (which I know won't be possible...) but the ads ABOVE the content really annoy me - why can't the ads run down the side of the page? It's so frustrating, especially when the content begins to load so you can see it, and then it jumps down a good few inches as the ads load! Grr!
...said Bimini Babe, number of posts = 1.

Sorry, couldn't help myself. Welcome aboard, Bimini Babe.

Three catamarans and one monohull on the banner, while our boats are probably 3:1 monohulls to catamarans. Is that why we can't have our boats showing? Is Dave Old Jersey onto something here?

Love the new look. Lighten up the green to be more aqua. It is too close to black to see highlited or bolded text.

On me Netbook I am down to 2 cats and a normal boat. The other one maybe blew away? - looks about a F1 in the photo

FWIW screen fits very nicely on my netbook widthwise, albeit anything with a banner at the top is always gonna be a PITA.

I get that password box thing sometimes - but only when I was on a Client's machine in their offices (you didn't think I was on here this much without someone paying me did you?? )

Colour still not grown on me..........options would be nice


Overall looks a bit retro - not entirely meant as a compliment But can live with. Boat Names back on the poster description would be nice.

I like the new look a lot! And I love the color, maybe because I haven't spent years in the aquamarine waters yet ;0) Thanks for all your efforts and sprucing it up! Would like to see some more mono hulls in that header picture, and maybe a trauler too just to round out the representation...

Thanks for all the feedback we will be working on our laundry list in the next couple days.

Don't forget the header image is going to change. We are going to let the members take the photos and vote on what images they want to be in the header. So don't go assuming the 3:1 ration of multi to mono is a signal or anything. Actually it would be a 6:1 ratio when you add up all the hulls...

Quite easy, press the "print screen" key and then open MS Paint. Under "Edit" select "Paste" and bobs your uncle a photo of your screen. Play with "attributes" to either reduce the size or cut and paste for just one part of the picture.

For those suggesting the "three multis to one mono" infers something, I get a different count. I see four multis and four monos, with one of the monos being a power vessel. You think I'm wrong . . . prove it!

Does that include the 3 submarines? and the Alien Spaceship?

Well, I only had ellipses and boxes, so . . . And, anyway, the UFOs are the same color as the sky, while the subs are invisible in the water, so I didn't want to confuse things any further - but they're definitely there (if you look closely.)

I see what you mean. One of the UFOs is clearly visible in your avitar.

I wish I knew how to put the arrows & circles on the screenshots, like TaoJones & Obie.
