Your website looks good. It is a good format and once it fills up will make interesting viewing. Good luck.

I've got a tongue in cheek suggestion - add a "don't be silly" button next to the prices

Looking 4 a Boat

Eighteen million quid for a 45' boat?

Yup they are - my second post was pulled and a very polite PM was sent , which I had no problem with at all!

I'm currently saving my pocket money....

As to the original thread of the post:

It looks good - and it's easy to navigate.

A worthwhile option may be a 'sort by..' filter once you've reached your required page. i.e. sort by price or location.

Most purchases are driven by those two factors.

Hi guys, like I said I'm new to this and yes I will upgrade to be a trade mamber for the Website stuff I didn't realise I was breaking any rules, Sorry. Can I still keep my personal page too? and where do I find the trade bits and what does this offer?? As for the comments I was going to see about filters when the numbers of adverts increased,and I agree POA is crap but I guess thats up to the individual if they want to put potential buyers off. Anyway Im away to explore the trade thing (hope its not expensive).

Probably because the moderators are volunteers who give up some of their free time each week to keep Ribnet running. You will notice a lack of spam on Ribnet and anything that does get though is quickly vapourised, each member of staff having a light sabre for this purpose.

We don't see it, but there will be a host of other issues helping new members and solving queries, moving posts etc, so doubtful they could read each new post. Instead to help them do hit the report button which gives them a heads up.

Sorry about all the mellon spitakes, thought the spell checker was some sort of Harry Potter function. After tiredlessly spending 16 hours a day trying to promote this new venture and endlessly looking at my laptop (which I'm convinced is laughing at me) my brain has melted, dripped out my ears and is currently on the floor in a puddle,my eyes aren't doing much better as the retena has been replaced with a google home page.On a positive note though at least they've made you stop,think non compute and reply to this post.

I like the cut of your jib young man. Give as good as you get & you'll go far on here
Good luck with your venture
