Sailnet used to be better than it is today. The articles they still have are all first rate and the authors well known. We have a few folks that stop by here too. Times do change and the Sailnet folks are not the same as they used to be. They are and always were a commercial
site to sell stuff and that is not a bad thing as they do keep it at a distance.
has brought out a few good places to hang out for sailors and from time to time you may feel the urge to go other places to browse a bit. I sure do. But at the end of the day you go to the places you feel most comfortable with. CF has been a great place for me and we hope it can be a great place for a lot of folks. We don't need everyone to be a great place.
If there are things you don't like send a private email
to any Admin or Moderator and we will see it gets discussed. It's alway been that way. You have to understand that right now we are close to 7,000 members and not everyone is the same. We try to keep it a friendly place where we don't let things get out of hand and it can be suitable for most members of the family
. We are not going away from that policy at all but we would do other things where there was significant interest. We are clearly not done trying to make the place better.
