Jim, nice and simple very good -- just get some meta tags in your heading area so the search engines can pick this up easier -- that was IWaterways sites problems -- people couldn't locate these sites through the standard search sites --- thank you for this service Thomas

Thanks for the vote-of-confidence in the site.

I'll work on the META Tags (just added a bunch to the top-page) but in the meantime, word-of-mouth could be a big help.

Tell all your boating/Whaler friends about us!

In addition to the meta tags, you should
also change the title tag. Currently
it says Continuouswave, not Boston Whaler.
This has two negative impacts: the search
engine give extra points for words in the
title, and when it's bookmarked, the
title is what shows up in the bookmarks.

Also, can you make this area we type into
wider? About 65 characters is a good width.
This is way too narrow.

I don't think I have handle on changing the size of the REPLY ENTRY TEXT FIELD. It is buried in the Perl Script that generates all this HTML code.

I think the narrow window might have some merit: it encourages terse replies!

I did tweak the nomenclature for the HOME PAGE and the FORUM NAME so they are not as confusing.
