Weatherbird for sale

E-mail Print PDF
It is with a heavy heart that I announce that Weatherbird is on the market. She has been a wonderful boat for Beth and I these past years, and will be sorely missed. She's taken us in comfort and style wherever we've asked, and has always brought us home safe and sound. I hope and trust that the next phase of her life will bring someone else as much pleasure as she has brought us, and that they will be able to care for her in the way she's grown accustomed to!

Art Karpf is listing her through A. LeComte Company, and she is co-listed through Steve Angel at Angel Marine here in Halifax. A Yachtworld (http://www.yachtworld.com) search for manufacturer 'LeComte' will find it.


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you with the details, but I've converted to a new forum software (phpBB) which is much more standard and shouldn't go out of date like the old one.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.
