    Database connection down

    Looks like the database connection supporting owner profiles and sea stories has been down for a while. Perhaps an admin can take a look at fixing whatever broke here (something expired or changed?)

    "Technical Knowledge" Site

    Found this thru a link from the big Practical Boat Owner's Reader to Reader site at Lots of topics on mechanical and electrical material. UK-based, so some terminology is slightly different. You all might want to view a few of the articles...

    Another site having Datamarine parts

    I found a web site store which has some Datamarine parts, including transducers for the older models. For example, Datamarine Depth Replacement Core $129.99 for Datamarine Depth Sounder. For transducer models S200DL, LX201, Link 5100/6100 and All Dart models. Of course DMI still has parts but...

    Having trouble with this site

    What am I doing wrong? Many of the pages on the site that I click on give me gobbldy gook intended as place saver. For instance, under Resources, Specification Archives. And yet, somehow via a Google search I was able to get to the manual for my Ericson 34 on the site. David Westcott

    Canned Bacon Site Located

    This is something maybe some of you long-range cruisers might be interested in. Here is a company and web site that has re-introduced canned bacon: I haven't tried it yet, and I have no economic incentives for passing this along. Steve Swann E25...

    Interesting Sailing Weather web site. Interesting Sailing Weather web site. From researching the archives for my area (Hurricane Gulch, in LA Harbor), it seems to give pretty accurate information. Just thought I would share it. I am still learning how to read the graphs.

    The "Float Plan" site... FYI -- This is quite the venerable sailing site dating back a number of years. I had nearly forgotten it until today. I remember checking in monthly just for fun starting around a decade ago when the (still kicking, by the way) YachtList was just about the...

    Diesel Information web site I was doing some 'net surfing and reading up on Diesels and replacements ... after following another thread on this site about repair vs replacement. This site FAQ seems to have a lot of good commentary and advice, at least based on my limited...

    Site Construction to Start Again...

    Don't freak out if you see some changes to forums in the next couple of weeks - spring quarter is almost over (finals week next week) and I'll have a bit (just a bit) of free time to try and get the new version of the site up closer to going live...

    McMaster-Carr = excellent site

    McMaster-Carr = excellent company! I know that others here have touted this vendor, so today I went looking for some angle-molded G10/FR4 epoxy/cloth 90 degree "plate." It's one thing that their site has every size and thickness of GRP plate, I beam, 90 degree angle, and most other shapes that...

    Happy Holidays everyone! :xmas_sant I've just finished with final exams - and before I disappear into the basement to work on my portfolio (deadline: Jan 15th), I thought I would do a little maintenance, tell everyone what the status of the new site is, and start the annual fund raising...

    New site for boat profiles

    I've put together a new site where you can create a profile of your boat online for free. It's still in the "beta" stages - I *think* I have most of the bugs worked out. There is still some work left to be done to make it a bit easier to use and a little more slick. Eventually, the goal is...

    New Site Going Up & Occasional Oddness...

    I thought I should mention to everyone that while the new site is being created, you might see things that are a little, um...'unusual' from what you're used to seeing. Basically, the new site is being created next to the old one, and we have to create tie-ins to the databases, etc - which...

    Electrical Tool Site

    While ReWiring and making lots of trips to WM, I always looked at the COOL Ratchet Crimp Tool and really wanted one to replace my NAPA Crimp Tool. The old style non-compound tool was KILLING my hand for a good tight crimp. All I had to do was look at the Price to go back to my old ways. Here...

    Nice Hawaii trip web site On my early morning journey around the 'net search engines... I found this nice site with photos and even a short 10-knot video of a race to HA on a big boat. So it's not an Ericson or an Olson... but still nicely done and it...

    The site seems much "faster"

    Sean, I noticed that the site loads quite a bit faster since last night's maintenance. Speed is always appreciated, thanks. Last month, while on vacation on the east coast, we took advantge of free Wi-Fi a few times to check e-mail. We have a new HP IPAQ (seems weird calling it an HP) which...

    EY.c Future: Would you pay for a site like EY.c?

    EY.c Future: What would you pay for a site like EY.c? Here's another good question: If EY.c were a fee-based site - and you had to pay some small amount annually, how much would you be willing to pay? This assumes that the site's expenses would be fully covered. From the time I created...

    EY.c Future: Is EY.c a 'useful' site? How could we improve it?

    When I created this site, I did so from a need that I felt the Ericson Community had: to have a single repository of information that was useful for the existing community - but also for prospective owners. That was four years ago. Now, there is a considerable amount of information on this...

    Here is a real cool link to a web site that has a lot of good info about sailing inside San Diego Bay. Click on, surf around, and then tell me what you think of it. I would like others in different Southern California Harbors to post similar web sites for their respective bays and harbors, so...
