November 2003 from memory, prepare to edit when this is posted.
I was asking about MB2/50 Engines.....and became a reference knowledge. I still get requests for spares and info.
'East Coast Pilot' at www.eastcoastpilot.com 4th Edition now available......
My memory is going, but I think I remember posting on a compuserve sailing forum back in the early 90s
Joined just after I got my current boat in 2000
Certainly around for this http://www.ybw.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2217 in Yarmouth, we even got a write up in PBO.
I see in those days you could post as a Guest as Nigel Luther wasn't registered.

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
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!!
