When I sold my last Hatteras the buyer was familiar with the brand, boat and my use and maintenance history by reading posts here.

    So please keep rewarding the guys at Sam's with your purchasing dollars. It's a great investment.

    Let's just imagine my thoughts were directed more at the membership and our ability/willingness to provide oh, say $25/yr? $50/yr to Sams (it works for boatdiesel.com) to help bring it up to standards, maintain, and possibly upgrade. Is there a way to pitch this to them and the membership?

    Many would not pay. I think it works best to be free to get the most participation. Sam's benefits from getting traffic. I'm sure this free service gets the most people to learn about Sams and increases orders. You just have to learn how to use the site. It works fine.

    I think boatdiesel has the same picture size restrictions. Of all the forums I use, only one has the capability of automatically resizing pictures. It s runs day hosted by volunteers some of them programmers.

    Resizing pictures isnít rocket science and easy to do whether on a phone, tablet or PC

    I didn't mention any resizing issues, at least I don't think resizing will invert them right side up.

    Agreed, nothing wrong with wishin

    Not many options for 32v anymore. The old Sentry and LeMarch or the smart charger from Analytic, or an Outback Charger/inverter.

    Feel free to send me a PM with your phone number.

    I take pics with my iPhone. They will post upside down from the phone to the site. So, I send my pics to my laptop, open them and spin them 360 and close. From then on, they post in correct orientation.

    This may not be the most up to date site, but neither are our boats and neither am I. I would suggest taking your complaints to Sams via a call or email as opposed to open posting. All I can say is Sam's has got to be the most patient and forgiving folks ever for what I've seen posted over the years (not singling anyone out). And I really appreciate them!

    Complaints about the site are meant for this section, why keep them a secret so Sam's knows the extent of the dysfunction. No need to judge my intention or demeanor

    .Robert, I take pics on I-pad or I phone also and I donít mean this to sound like a smartAss remark but I just take my pictures for the site with the phone or iPad upside down, works perf every time. John
