Board following?

Not that this is bad, just hard for me to grasp.

It seems to me we went from a Great Lakes-East Coast board. To a more worldly board. In the last year the membership from outside of North America has grown substantialy.

I guess that was deliberate by the Website owners? and maybe also a result of some of the original punters actually going crusing!! and "spreading the word"??

I got a link from another Website (which I have since been banned from, again! - hence me being a bit more of a frequent visitor here) - it is very refreshing to read comments from adults who know a bit more about boats than just how to write a cheque, have risked dropping over the edge of the known world (by going out of sight of land / the solent!) and are willing to share info,. experiances and opinions without folk considering it a mortal sin that someone else's opinion / experiances may vary...............

::chuckle:: Diversity is more fun!

I first logged on... oh, way too long ago. It was kinda narrow at the time. Now it's opened up a bit, YMMV is more obvious, less flaming.

No real effort from the owners or admins. More a word of mouth thing from some of our more prolific posters from NZ and Oz.

Na...it's not a problem with the Kiwis, it's those damn West Coasters! ha ha ha (Just kidding of course)

I think it's a good thing we have such a geographically diverse group. Helps if we were to have questions about crusing say... NZ. I might be able to post and ask for some good spots, what the law is, etc...

Actually, the site was started by Gisle in Norway. Other interests caused him to sell (or what ever is done ) to Andy.

The site took off quick in the US (East Coast) and Canada but spead fast through the rest of the English speaking world.
