Apologies if any of you find undesirable postings, we seem to be under attack from unwanted new members and are being vigilant to delete messages and ban such users as soon as we can.

The registration procedure has been closed for the time being as we were inundated with dodgy members and messages, hopefully that has solved the problem for the time being, will look at re-opening in the New Year.
If you know anyone genuine who wants to join, let me know.

Registration opened tonight for 1 known person to join, this has resulted in a flurry of unwanted messages, apologies, will delete soonest and close registration again!

p.s. welcome to Jim, registration now closed again!

If members know personally anyone wanting to join, let me or one of the other Administrators know and we will provide a short window of opportunity to join our merry gang.
Cheers, George

Some of the other larger marine sites have had similar problems this past year,some even getting 200+ spam messages from Korea each morning.
'Tis fortunate that we are small enough to cope,and care!

During short opening yesterday to allow Howard to join, we got around 5 unwanted members, all now deleted and banned. One even sent a PM so if anyone else sees a suspicious PM, just ignore it please.
