RE: Passage Maker?

Just come over to this forum for the first time from the unbelievably slow PM forum. So far? It looks like this forum works like lightning in comparison!

May I introduce myself? My wife (Lin) and I (Piers) have a Fleming 55 #129, based in Portsmouth, UK. So far, we have cruised Holland, the English Channel, the south coast of England and Scillie Isles, France (Normany and the north coast of Brittany) and the Channel Islands.

This year, we hope to cruise the west coast of Brittany, but the weather this summer is dreadful.

With almost 20 years boating under our keel, boating just gets better and better. See you around....

RE: Passage Maker?

Yep, GPB, this site is speedy - but so it should with no ads etc. Looks like we can keep in touch and get our fix here while we keep an eye on the other side, eh? Love your boat, but it would be to deep drafted for Moreton Bay, here off Brisbane. Great for coastal passaging though - like up to out Whitsunday Islands. My boat has been up there several times with previous owners I was told. I'd love to do it too, but the SO not so keen. She'd rather just drive up and - get this - 'hire one'. Ho hum.....sigh.....

RE: Passage Maker?

Welcome aboard, Papa Bear.

We've been having a bit of fun at the PM magazine's expense.* But I've been following the April issue's "Daily Looking Marvelous Routine for Him" which includes the suggestion "Shower, wash, and condition hair; exfoliate".

I'm pretty certain my wife would kick me out of the house if she caught me exfoliating in the shower.

But the hair care suggestions have worked out pretty well.

RE: Passage Maker?

Peter,
Good to see you over here now.
I was just getting so bogged down on the PMM site.
Have Just flown back to Brisbane , left the boat up at laguns Quays for a while will fly/drive back up in a couple of weeks.
Had a quick trip up to get to Hammo for the Hammo Cup 25 th anniversary. (outrigger canoe racing)
Departed Mooloolaba with first stop Kingfisher bay for an overnight then to lady Musgrave Is.
Overnighted there and then thru to Middle Percy Is with a 3 hrs stop at High peak Is to catch a few Coral trout and Large Mouth Nanagi. (that was a long leg)
next leg to Scawfell is for a couple of days then Thomas Is and then to Hammo.
After the 42 k changeover race spent a few days around the Islands and then in to Laguna. Nice and safe and also cheaper than the other marinas.

RE: Passage Maker?

Hiya,
** Again FF, you're full of it (and I mean that in the <u>nicest</u> way).* PMM has hired trained chimps-well not very well trained.* Due to their ever increasing quest for profit (and I think you agree with this-correct me if*I'm wrong) and serious navel gazing the highly qualified staff (ya right) have totaly fcqued-up what used to be a pleasant place to spend a couple of minutes.*Some expert opinion, some laughs and little advertising.* I lurk*other sites with an equal amount of advertising and the speed, lack of downtime, and ease of use is remarkable in comparison to PMM.
** I don't thing board NAZI's have anything to do with it.* <u>I </u>think it's plain incompetance and people working WAY beyond their capacities.
** As far as exfoliating*Mr. Foster,*what is THAT going to do to my fig leaf?

Stopped by PM.com this morning. Boy, with all the improvements over there, their activity has dropped significantly! Looks like about 7 posts yesterday.

RE: Passage Maker?

For a while they had the on line count for a 16 hour period.* 3,000+ people viewed the sight and 400 people log on, which surprised me.**We complained so they changed to back to the present count.*** I don't think they are to concerned about the board as much as the total count.*

RE: Passage Maker?

They are concerned with telling their advertisers they have a large eyeball count , to make more $$.

They don't give a damn about the magazine ('cept add count) or the board ('cept the eyeball count).

RE: Passage Maker?

Oh well, guess I've been kicked off there. Even though I'm logged in, I can't get past page one on any longer threads, getting a big code error message. When I tried to reply or post a new message, it's just dead when I hit the submit or preview links... OTOH, it sure will accept the "cancel" command! Hahahaha! Not much activity still, for the number of users.

They just keep making it better and better, don't they? NOT.

One of my favorite lines from a Star Trek movie... Scottie says: "The more they overtake the plumbing, the easiser it is to stop up the drain."

RE: Passage Maker?

I have not seen any better or worse out of the PMM site the past year with their "new" format. In generral it does seem faster. I have successfully logged on to PMM from 4 different countries this year including* internet guarded China. PMM's spell checker is nonexistent but for me so is this forum's. Oh well -----

RE: Passage Maker?

PMM is rapidly dieing , since so many folks use Mozilla Foxfire , and can no longer post.

The novices with IE and other bug prone internet do not have the experience to actually answer much in response to questions.

Sad as the number of novices going to the site will never get straight answers.

Sunchaser, this site is totally funded by Baker and myself.* What do you expect for free!

Hint:* I use Google Toolbar Spell Checker.* It's free, as well as many others.

Happy Trawlering!

Well there you have it. I can't spill chuk anywhir. It appears the PMM*website*is near death. Hopefully this site can continue to attract some attention and good Q&A. The Q part is the key.
