We've come a long way in the last 6 years! Thank you to all the staff and members that make this place a fun and informative place on the internet!

The last year has brought us:
  • 18,188 members! We have thousands more non-members that come to the site for information but don't join (that's ok). As you can see from active member statistics, usage continues to climb year over year.

  • We continue to hold staff meetings and discuss new things we can do for our members.
  • Gatherings continue to flourish - this last year included Shelbyville, Bimini, NC-Raleigh Area, and even some meetings at boat shows.
  • We introduced a new Dark Style for those that prefer a darker look for the forum.
  • We keep adding things by request - the lastest being discussed is if we need an aluminum jet boat forum.

Please keep your suggestions coming as it is our goal to be responsive to your requests (as we can). This site is for you-our members!

Nice to see this info. Thanks. Also good tip on dark mode! I had no idea, just enabled it. And thanks to you and the rest for the work you've done on this. It's an excellent resource.

Never mind, just checked. Yep but no posts today.

Looking at the trends August is the peak activity on the forum and December is the lowest. Makes sense, but it sure makes the cold winter months drag by when the forum is slower. Anyone have thoughts on ways to boost usage in the early winter?

Wow, 6 years. It's been so long I've forgotten how to spell YJB. This has been a great place to hang out and share.

We had been talking about running some photo contests, but my international travel went bonkers and I didn't get to it! Exec platinum on AA and Gold on Delta.....makes flying easier....but I missed home!

I travel for work too, can be exciting but there are those obvious drawbacks.

Bring back all those old spray cans so global warming extends our northern boating season deeper into winter!
I'm choosing the environmentally friendly option and just moving us to Chattanooga. That's phase 1, phase 2 will be further south to the Gulf of Mexico about 10 years down the road. No CFC's required!
