    I've added numerous search boxes for the forums.

    On the WOA Forum Home page - the search will search all the forums topics.

    On the first page of each forum - the search only searches that forum topic.

    On the Rendezvous forum home page is the only search for all the different Rendezvous forums.

    Let's see how they work.

    Be sure to go out and buy a copy of the November/December issue of Good Old Boat magazine (unless you are already one of the lucky people who subscribe). There is a feature article on the Westsail Corporation and a sub feature on Bud Taplin!
    Hope you like it!

    Am currently in PEI getting an old house ready for occupancy.  Whern I return to Oklahoma in September will remove & replace fuel tanks and prep Bloodhound for an overland journey to Charlottetown.  Will be dye checking all standing rigging.  Just couldn't face a 3000 nm journey from Galveston, TX to Wood Isalnds, PE.  The downside is an October haul-out until early May -- short season when I'm used to 12 month sailing.
