From Allan:
"...Dear Sir/Madam
I have tried several times to enter a crew wanted ad. I am logged in under I have entered all the relevant details and still the ad does not appear. As I am reasonably computer illiterate I concede that the problem is probably one of my own making but cannot work it out. Trust you may be able to help. I have also put my yacht in the yacht section. HELP!!!
yours sincerely..."

From Yannick:
"...It's mine and several other sailors understanding that 7knots is not a commercial site yet i find adds looking for jobs/paid postions as well as receiving email from them looking for paid postions, can you please clarify the policy of 7knots on this issue and if its like i understand perhaps you can disclaim this point somewhere during the signup point

secondly; everyone has problems with other people and misunderstandings, yet when physical violence happens i think you should have a page to warn others about the bad people, other issues are criminals wanted by various govt. who wish to use you to escape the law and thus put your boat and position into jeopody, other who are commiting fraud via representing themselves as captains without being so thanks for your time look foward to your comments"

From David:
"...I have visted your site before and found iot very helpful ion finding crew, but just know find all I get is sent over to Explorer and then all I get is a long list of codes. What's happening? Below is what I am given, not what I asked for, such as crew lists. I am delivering a boat from the BVI to Maine in May and need two able crew members..."

From Bob:
When I get to your home page ( and click the Classified button, what you see below the line across the page below is the first few lines that I see on the screen. If I copy the entire document, paste it into MS Word, enter <html> as the first line, save as text only and then open the new document as a file in MS Explorer I see it as a website. I suppose that there could be something wrong with my browser but I am not having this occur with any other website. Thanks.

Few days later from Bob again:
"...I upgraded to a newer version of MS Explorer (Mac) and the problem went away. Sorry for causing you so much trouble.
Now I can get back to searching for an older cruising catamaran. I'm consistent: Mac user--catamaran...."
