Ring Powercraft

http://www.ringpowercraft.net/Ring_01/index.htm

Considering the awesome reputation Mike Ring has why don't his boats get more discussion going on this site?

Some very nice pictures and video clips - just can't understand why so many companies use flashy designers for their websites. Having a tiny frame in the middle of the screen is a joke considering most people are running at least 17 or 19" monitors these days!!!

The site is made by my partner and we are using the same frame to UK site as on ours, we made the site 2 years ago when it was a trend over here to have frames like this, we are trying to build the frame so it adjusts after wich screen you have but we have been running into some problems with the existing frame.
Most of the pictures that we have used on the site has been delivered in Scandinavia and are often black and grey, as i have understand its not very common colours in the UK and thats maybe a reason that people dont find them interesting.
Can be wrong but only thought that i have.

That green RIB looks awesome - any idea of it's top speed?

We have nothing at all to do with web design. I can only just about draft a decent looking letter in Word - anything artistic is totally beyond me. However I have been using the internet since 1993 and I think I know a good site when I see it.

It's NOT just Ring's site - there are loads using frames etc that are just crap - too flashy and arty for their own good. Sunseeker is a classic example.

The best websites are as simple as possible - like this one for example!!!

I'm not brilliant either, Graham a guy at our place does our computer work, he's only 22 but knows his way around all the programs and web design is no problem, he runs his own forums, every time I try I mess things up it really annoys me that I can't do better, think I will have to go to night school to improve as it is important to my company for me to be a bit more savey
