yea we are still wondering whos baby it is
Stecz, Dollabill,Cashbar all have no boat but always have something to contribute.
OSOSteve had a good thing going and with him around it felt like someone actually cared, with IB it lost that feeling.......
Very interesting to go back and read this.
Seems this arguement is nothing new.
All these old threads are hurting my head. Some of the past history is interesting to read--the posts explain a lot. But since I wasn't around, I just don't have any response to them. Fun stuff, however...
I can't believe that guys who own offshore boats bellyache about a website like this costing 12 cents a day to use.
People come and they go- this place may not be for everybody. I miss some of the people who don't come around anymore but I enjoy some of the newer one's too.
I hope everybody (OK almost everybody ) sticks around, but if you can't, I understand. I've looked around and haven't seen anything else even close.
The story remains the same from when this thread was started 3 yrs ago, as it does today.
Bunch of guys/(gals) with powerful boats that they expect to be reliable, but are unreliable, on a website they expect to be reliable, and to be the same everytime, but is ever evolving, and sometimes unreliable.
Sometimes for the better in ones opinion, and the worse in anothers.
Most of us are at least somewhat successful, and in our limited leisure time, we expect the things that we have worked for (paid for) to be turn-key.
Chris, you may be the exception, you seem to have large amounts of leisure time to spend on here
I really think the main problem is too many forums, used to be you could look at GD, the Bilge and Tech and pretty much see everything that's going on.
That is no longer the case, there are now many members whose posts I never see unless you go into their regional or club forum.
It may be more convenient for some this way, but it has really made things dull IMO. I enjoyed the the inter-club/brand repartee that was a regular feature of GD
