. . . it's faulty numbering?  It's been screwed up for years.  Really guys, don't you have any web programmers over there?

 

If your listing is near the end of a broker's list you get dropped.

 

"Items:   21 - 26 of 23"

... unless it's YOUR boat.  Besides smartass, it's the smaller and cheaper boats that get dropped, not the yachts.

And your ethnicity is?  Would love to see a poll of the make up of SA.

Yes we do have our issues. I just can not believe that it is out in the open for all to see. The cheap short yachts at the end of a brokers list are not being seen. We must do something about it because while I have no problem with minorities in sailing.... You know ...the Irish.... I want the poor gone! If there little boats are not seen on yachtworld.com by the junk man they will keep showing up to events that only the well off can truly enjoy.

ease up there Bobby, that was funny. don't get wound up so easy. It's yachtworld, not sunseeker your looking at.


I spend a lot of time on yachtworld, as I do the final editing for a brokerage that has a LOT of listings there, never seen the problem you are talking about and just took a look with a few different searches, and on our boats too. No issues.

 

Try using a different browser or hitting 'CTRL -' or 'CTRL +' and see what happens.

So tell us - how ARE the poor people doing?

 The Aussie government's Treasurer (on about $AUS300K per year) just put his size 10 foot in his size 20 mouth by claiming a planned petrol excise increase won't impact so much on the poor because "the poor don't have cars or if they do, they don't drive far"

He has made a public apology but that stupid line is going to follow him for his entire political career.

 

Other than that the poor are doing just fine. Or so I hear...

while they're at it, perhaps they can add a function that allows you to search on a category of boats and simultaneously eliminate Beneteau / Catalina / McGregor / Irwin (etc etc) from the search results.   It would eliminate 90% of the stuff you didn't want to sift through.

 

Seriously, you can do a search on "40-50' race boats" and your query will generate hundreds of 4knot shit-boxes and only a few legitimate matches.  Nope, a catalina 42 is not a "race boat".  Just because some dumb broker tagged it as such does not make it so.

 

They really haven't upgraded the site in many years.

This ENTIRE WEBSITE is devoted to people that can afford to sail a boat just for fun. The third world survival fishing boat website is someplace else, but the fisherman don't have money for screwing off on computers so the post count is low :rolleyes:

Are you sure that the omission of the cheap, short, old and multi-colored boats at the end of the list is not intentional?
The site is named "YACHT" world. Not five shades of yellow and brown what were you thinking in 1976 IOR rules.com!

OK I will just come out and say what everyone else is thinking. Yachtworld is for whites only!! especially those with a blue waterline...

I used to own the class prototype. Rhodes design, quite racy for its day. Threw buckets of water at the crew in a chop.

Hell, the Poles are BUILDING some nice sailboats - where will it end?

 

Ron Holland moved to Ireland years ago so I guess we have to put up with THEM sailing.

The numbering/pagination problem is with YW lists linked from brokers' websites but that's okay - glad you guys had some fun with my post.

 

I guess it's an accountant thing but if YW was my business, after a few years I'd have tried to fix the problem.

 

Carry on.

I think Ron lives, at least part time, in Vancouver now.

 

Not really sure if he even does sailboats these days.  Seems to be involved mainly with mega yachts.

Let us not get carried away with youthful exuberance! At least you are not suggesting we let women VOTE for club elections or Drive our boats!

$450?  I'm not sure I could afford to own a $450 boat.  Let's see, $450 plus $500 for bottom paint plus $950 for new rigging plus $3500 for sails plus $7k when we discover half the hull is blistered and the deck needs recoring, plus...

 

Nah, no way can I afford a $450 boat.  Now if you were talking a $15-$20k boat, maybe it's possible I could afford that...

If you are spending $500 for bottom paint and and $950 for rigging and $3500 for sails for an old 23 foot boat you have issues :rolleyes:

$150 worth of paint should be plenty, sails scrounged at Bacons for well under $1000  assuming the current ones are rotten, and no reason to re-rig the boat I can see.
