Thank you, Peter!!!!! Now we can access the specific information we want and/or provide information we have on specific topics without having our inboxes inundated with dozens of blathering emails on topics not even related to the original prop guards... It was starting to remind me of talking on a CB radio in the 70s..."anybody out there"????


This will definitely attract more quality information on the boats for everyone to take advantage of....

Subject: [OMC-Boats] To Much Traffic

One of the problems with ListServe is that it forces everything into your inbox whether you want to know about it or not.
As soon as there's an upswing in traffic - which is a good thing as far as a community is concerned - it becomes an irritation for many.
The solution is a forum. I've been working on that and have put one up. I've been holding off on making any kind of announcement while adding content - and the front pages aren't ready...but now seems like as good a time as any.
A forum allows people to pick and choose what they read - to post photos easily - to contribute material regarding their projects and to engage in conversations about off topic or near topic subjects without pushing others away.
So here goes....
Please visit
Please take a moment to register - post a hello - add whatever you'd care to. If you have manuals, brochures or other content to add please either feel free to do so or send them to me and I'll take care of it.
This is for everybody and with participation I think it'll be a boost to the avocation.
This is not meant in any way to take anything away from The List - it's an alternative. Try it - see if you like it.
The New Busy is not the old busy. Search, chat and e-mail from your inbox.
