Subject: Directory Download to Excel
I suggest allowing a download of the directory to an Excel spreadsheet. That way the user could sort for people or boats in certain locations.

Subject: Where are Catboats sailed
I am interested in where people who sail Catboats regularly live and sail, both winter and summer. If I were travelling to Maine, for example, where should I stop to visit where I can watch and meet catboat sailors? If I travel south in the winter are there active sailors, say near Savannah, or must I go further south, etc. It would be fun to read about the Clubs that host large Catboat Fleets and where they are and why are they there, etc. Our Club is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year and we have had a Sanderling Fleet since approximately 1965. Our history and sailing area might be of interest to others and vice versa.

Subject: Web-site Improvement
I recommend adding at "last updated" date on the opening page. It helps the reader learn if anything new has been added. Best Regards, Drew (Pandora)

Subject: Popular designs feature
One great feature of the old web site was the Popular Designs pages. There was lots of info there: line drawings, specifications, and manufacturers info, for lots of different catboats. When I was looking for my first catboat, those pages were invaluable to me in learning about different boats and trying to decide which one(s) might best meet my needs. I'd be happy to provide info on my boat (Vintagecat 22) and I bet lots of other folks would too.

Subject: membership renewal obscure
would like to see a small rework of the Membership page. Took me quite a while to notice the renewal link on the page. Alternatively, the annual mailed notice could be more specific about what links to follow to renew on the website. that said, paypal renewal is a great feature.

Subject: Virus Stuff
Well the new site has been quite a journey, about the same time there was a giant virus attack on servers across the country but we are past that and I don’t think anyone but me lost sleep! Please don’t hesitate to call me if you have any problems. Nick 360-271-8659

Subject: Noting thread activity
Is there anyway we can see if there's been responses to a thread short of opening it? Secondly, is there a way we can have paragraph breaks? This message would be more readable if there were a line space before the sentence beginning "Secondly . . . " And another space between this and my sign-off . . . G'luck and great start here Ian McColgin Marmalade
