Welcome to LeComte Owners

Welcome to the LeComte Owners site, a site devoted to the beautiful and wonderfully crafted LeComte yachts. Here, owners of LeComte yachts and others who are interested in them can share ideas, opinions, stories, pictures, and whatever else they like. It is intended to be a repository of information and experiences to enrich our experiences with these wonderful boats.

The site was set up to deal with the shortage of readily-available information on LeComte Yachts on the web - here you will find what has been gathered to date, if you have more, please share it!

The site is set up as a community site, with users (once they are registered) being able to contribute content. The forums are a place for people to have ongoing discussions - please visit them and ask questions, answer questions, or just speak your mind. There will soon also be sections containing information on each of the seven sailing yachts that LeComte built, with subsections for individual examples of them. Come back and see what has been added, and send along what you have to contribute.

Enjoy the site!


The last missing element of the site is now back in place: the discussion forums. I won't bore you with the details, but I've converted to a new forum software (phpBB) which is much more standard and shouldn't go out of date like the old one. It's also a lot nicer to use, I think.

All of the old content is still there for posterity, and new content can be entered as you please. Please do try it out, it is working for me, but I don't know for sure that that means it'll work for all. I'd like to see a new post or two to raise my confidence in it!

The one remaining thing to do to get the site properly upgraded is to consolidate the look and feel. The main template is a bit sloppy, the integration with the gallery and the forums is even worse. I'll tackle that as I have time and inclination - it'll probably happen gradually.

In the meanwhile, we should now be able to have users do their own posting for pictures and for stories - so if you have some you'd like to post, try it out and if you're blocked by something get in touch and we can work through it together. It'd be great for this to finally become the user-driven site I had originally intended for it to be.
