Helo Tom, My name is Nick Tountas from Athens Greece. I am newlly elected as vice president of The Hellenic Profesional Skipers Association. I was given the task to build a website to promote our union and i am looking for a webmaster to manage the site.The union has 170 members but i believe we can go up to nearly 400 if we push some PR and have people see us.I need a person who knows VERY WELL about site building and management.I will feed him with data but i will need his art and fantasy. Coming to the money point.We canot aford to pay because we have no money,but we have a lot of honey.The person who will manage our site will never pay for sailing vacation in Greece for the rest of his life.Guaranteed. At this moment we have members of our assoc. delivering yachts to Croatia,to Corfu,Rhodes,Mykonos etc.Some of us do own yachts.I just got the position and all cash to set up will pay them from my pocket.I need to get things off the ground fast and i canot wait for 100 bucks to be aprooved in 30 days.etc.you know how assoc.work (and particularly in Greece) How do you like it?? Regards Nick
