Add your suggestions for new topics here and we'll consider adding them. We will choose carefully though so we don't create so many topics subscribers can't wade through them!

Good Sailing,

Why did you delete my previous post about the way the forum is organized. I was not the first person to say that you can't navigate through all the mud to get the info you need. As of now, there are post from 2004 - 2007 onthe buy/sell orum. As a company you should try your best to make your customers happy. You have ignored us for a long long time. You dont put instructions in your 'kits'. We would be very happy if you could put in a way fro us to search the forums and all us to view the most currents posts without having to read every single dam post. That is why we are upset with CD! Erasing my comments only shows how much you dont respect your customers.

Lowell,

Maybe you will see the message here. I have not recieved the digest in months. I have written and talked to people there when ordering parts. No one seems interested in the problem. The problem is not here. I have tried joining the list through two other email systems and still did not recieve a digest. I really would like to get the digest again. Can you look into it please.

Thanks,

Bob

Hi and thanks for asking for our opinions.
I also do not receive the digest anymore.
I know you habve mentioned how archaic it would be to make the forums search able, would it be possible to change to another type of software? Most are cheap and easily installed. I use v-Bulletin on my website and it works quite well, cost about $100 a year not much considering the great information that is available on this forum. v-Bulletin is search able and easily maintained, heck if I can run it anyone can.

Thanks

Lowell: color me the same. I havent received a digest in months. And it is hard to search thru the old posts to find the new ones when there isnt a digest to link you in.
thanks for all you do

newbie here--

How about a way to organize posts/threads by date?

Also, how about a "wing" section for issues particular to wing models.

thanks!

Hello Lowell,

There are some good ides posted to improve the site. I think the biggest would be to have the messages posted by date. As it is now, there are old posts mixed with new posts. After lets say a year, delete the for sale / wanted postings. Some of the posts are really old.

BTW the instructions on the lift kit are very good. Perhaps the other items you sell that have limited or no instructions... contact some of the people who have installed them and ask if they would write a sequence of operations... compile them and publish it with the item.

Thanks for servicing the C-22 and all you do for the class.

Best regards,

Yes, me too -- first time in months that I began receiving Clubhouse digests daily started on Oct. 25th. As I'm about to buy a new CD mainsail, I thought at the same time I'd look into this, complain if necessary. I came here, updated my profile, checked my inbox again (a special one I created just for CD Clubhouse digests) and found two new ones waiting for me since the last one on Mar. 8th! A pleasant surprise.

I am about to sell another C-22, will get another to fix up, and was wondering why I had not seen any CD posts. I had trouble with my computer and about that time thought it was that, it is good to see these again.

I just joined a few weeks ago, I have never received a digest. I assume it would go right to my email [email protected], bit I haven't received anything. Could it be that verizon is blocking this with a spam filter?

I hate to change the subject after only 90 days, folks, but the original thread was "new topics", I believe........I'm looking into upgrading all my 12V lighting to LED aboard my '84 C-27 and would like to purchase these components from C.D., if that turns out to be the most economical route. I'd like to read posts from fellow Catalina captains that have done similar work to their vessels. I'd like to see real-world comparisons; such as "upgrade existing fixtures with aftermarket LED bulbs" vs "replace the whole dang fixture & be done with it".

It seems to me that this is primarily a C-22 forum and that I am, for good or nought, a C-27 owner. For that I profusely apologise.

I, also, have little if any use for posts concerning shoes. I'm a Top-Sider man myself. Your preferences are your own business. Please keep them that way.

Thanks.
