    The old forum was a lot of fun, not forgetting 'Trouville' of course.....

    Anyone else 'sadly missed' ?????
    I remember certain characters, with very dogmatic views, arguing for weeks about very little, and getting pretty nasty with each other. The arguments were hilarious. naturally, I was very impartial. For a while, I was signing in as Nutcracker

    That's about it. I can date it fairly accurately by the current age of of a child born to another long standing poster couple of years after I first started to read, and, occasionally, post on, the forum.

    I think I started somewhere between 1996 and 98, but under my real name (We were very niave about the internet back then). Even without photos or links it was an amazing resource for all things boaty, and even better resource for stories about bogs

    Default 5 Years!

    Blimey, it's nearly 5 years since I started my first thread... I was asking about MacWester Wights then as well!
    At least I've done some sailing since then, and am several steps nearer to getting my own yacht - a Wight!
    I knew it was time to suspend the sailing lesson when the forked lightning hit the Loch surface!!
