    Hi!

    I saw you online at BoatDesign.net and wanted to let you know about a new site... YachtForums.com

    I'm e-mailing people with an interest in boating to let them know about it. Hope you make it an occasional waypoint!

    Best regards,

    I'm sorry that they appear to have spammed a good number of our members :( Their site does have a lot of potential, but I hope they realize that spamming people isn't the best way to promote their web site in the long run. A single message from them would have been welcome - three or 2,059 is not so great.

    --what I want is a wireless video camera/digital camera on a remote airplane or helicopter so I can take my own aerials

    Aerials

    Someone does sell a remote controlled flying object (I don't recall what it was, though I think it might have been a small tethered blimp) specifically for taking aerial photos. They were franchising it as a business for realtors, yacht brokers and such - think I saw it in Boating Industry.

    Jeff;

    Well, it may have potential, but I can't see it yet. They have done a nice construction job, but the, "gee, big white boats are pretty" commentary is pointless. The remarks read like Yachting magazine. Posting a zillion photographs of yachts that they don't even know the names of!!!! Why?

    I went over to the site (because someone sent me an email), but there is no reason to return.


    All the best, Tad

    I registered and after seeing the long threads about naked women and other non-marine issues I asked him to delete me as a member. I found it to be very unprofessional and didn't want my name and website posted there.

    You're obviously not hanging out over on SleazeNet (tm) like the rest of us ;-))
