Search Problem

Why can't you search these forums on 3 letter words.
Is there a reason?

you can - but most 3 letter words will be too common (the search looks for parts of words too)

Shouldn't be a problem. I just did a search for RYA and it worked fine. What was the error message?

If you ever need a more sophisticated search you can use Google and add "site:rib.net" into your query which restricts the results to RIBnet. The site is well indexed by Google so you should get good results.
