Well Mick it`s certainly different!Looks like it might be a bit awkward to get off the front!Anyway,I hope someone finds a good home for it as it has obviously been a labour of love for the guy that built it.

Caraboat General / Future of this Site

Hi all

I hope you are enjoying the Caraboat forums and find it useful. As you will surmise, running a site like this costs time and money. Many of you will know that the caraboat forum was originally set up by me for my father in law John Nelson, a great Caraboat enthusiast.

Since John's death several years ago I have maintained the forum, paid for the hosting costs and resolved difficulties with security attacks. As I personally have no interest in Caraboats I am unwilling to keep doing this if it costs me money.

A couple of years ago I set up a Subscription option on the site so that users could donate a small fee (15) per year to support the forums. Unfortunately, whether due to confusion or lack of interest, the vast majority of users on this forum have declined the option to support it, despite buying and selling caraboats through forum contacts.

This has led me to the decision to change the subscription process for the forum to a paid option only from January. To access the forum the user will need to set up a subscription at 25 per year. If there is still not enough uptake, then I will have no option but to close the site down.

To change your user type to a paid subscription before then, at a reduced rate of 15, follow these instructions:

  • Login as usual and choose the Profile option from the menu, then the Account Settings.
  • On this page, choose the Actions option and Paid Subscriptions will be the first choice. Follow the instructions there and you will help support the forum.

If you get any trouble doing this let me know and I can help from here.

Many thanks

Neil

Thanks Neil- that does help. I think Its a great idea to take all the fabric items in. I'm hoping for a couple more trips before winter sets in though! Fingers crossed for some late sunshine.
Thanks

Hi Sarah,
I drain down my water system to prevent freezing, remove the curtains and soft furnishings, Jack up and remove the wheels and place on axle stands, I have a Caravan cover that I also put over the Caraboat, also I have a electric fan heater I put on periodically when I go to check on the boat in the winter.
hope this helps,
Neil..
