Norumbega finds a new home

E-mail Print PDF
Norumbega, the NE38 MkI yawl for sale at Art Karpf's LeComte Yachts brokerage has sold to Brian S. Smith. He's looking forward to sailing her on Lake Ontario, and will be motoring her home soon to start enjoying her. He has a list of work to get done on her, but also has time to do it in - we look forward to seeing the results of his efforts!
 

Newsflash

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you with the details, but I've converted to a new forum software (phpBB) which is much more standard and shouldn't go out of date like the old one.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

Thanks!

Chris
