Problems with site

First of all, my devices are now saying “Not secure - trawlergorum.com” what’s with that?

The most maddening issue is Helmsman Trawler’s ad. I have tried to ignore, delete and tell Google about it and it just keeps popping up multiple times on my screen.

Please kill those ads, I will NEVER buy a Helmsman. Ever.

"Not Secure" is the default message being returned by your web browser when you browse to an site using HTTP as opposed to HTTPS. HTTPS uses SSL certificates.

There is little need to use SSL encryption for communication to a publicly viewable site such as this one.

Must be a shortage of Helmsmen buyers in Pender Harbour. Conversely, must be enough here in the Gulf Islands.

+1 on blocking all ads.

I found an ad blocker and installed it and it is looking like the end of Helmsman’s ads. Yay! Thank you!
