Oct 6 - The Forum is now ad free. Enjoy

Oct 2 - The Forum is now open. Several posts unrelated to our purpose have been deleted. Guests will be allowed to read the posts in the various Sections but only registered users will be allowed to post.

This Forum software, and its use, is free from Google provided we permit ads they select. No revenue was received by the website. This arrangement with Google worked reasonably well initially but has progressed from fairly innocuous marine related ads to some obnoxious ones you may have seen recently. The ads, initially positioned at the top of a page, are now also appearing immediately below the text of individual posts. Overall, they have become much more numerous, and more onerous.

We have purchased a license that will allow us to prevent ads from appearing on the Forum - period. This will go into effect as soon as we can technically figure out how to implement the change.
