Default Fastboats.info.forums (CopyCats?)

Whats up with Fastboats.info forums? This seems like an exact copy of Offshore Only.

JeffereyBoy (formerly of OSO) runs it. Both boards seem to be advancing in leaps and bounds. They bot hev just abotu every feature available via the BBS software so its kind of reasonable that they would be similar.

I've been there a few times. I even have a screen name. It doesn't come close to what we have here.

I agree that theres not as much action as OSO but who was first, and why a exact copy of this version?

OffshoreOnly.com was first.......that's why when that site started up as OffshoreOnly. net they got a phone call or two.

Usually this same topic gets brought up every month, nothing wrong with other boating related sites. I see many of the same people here visit fastboats just as much as any other sites. It's all personal preference, you get a much more information from many sites than just one.

Ever notice how a lot of the same topics are posted between the 2 sites, word for word? 'Copy and Paste' seem to have it's ways.
