They do seem to have some growing pains at the moment. To be honest I am surprised how long these problems have been going on, but I do know that they are committed to getting it sorted out.

Has anyone tried Apolloduck? Strange name, but it has been around for a while and has a much cleaner design than B&O.

Apolloduck is a great site BUT I have found that the adverts seem to be very old - normally you phone up to have some irate person ranting and raving that they haven't taken the ad off!!!

Apparently there is light at the end of the tunnel for Boats & Outboards and everything seems to be working much better now . . .

I found the rib intnl magazine website was the same.
I dont know why these sites dont have a life span for adverts, a month , or 3 months, then they are automatically
removed. If the item is not sold, the seller can repost the advert.

Well done indeed, mind you - I still cant get the list to sort by price and I have a useless credit note.
