Trouble Logging In?



If you're having difficulty logging into this website, there are a couple likely problems.

  1. Ensure that your password is entered correctly.

    The initial passwords that were sent to you will be a short string of digits and letters. Some of these passwords may contain the number 0 (zero). They will never contain the letter O.

    For example: The following password contains 2 zeros. Never the letter O.

    Password: ff0e1a0

  2. Verify your Browser's Privacy Settings

    If you are certain your username and password are being entered correctly, then it's likely that your Browser Privacy Settings are set too high to allow your browser to save your login status on your computer.

    To check your Browser Privacy Settings, choose the Tools->Internet Options menu option from your browser's menu. See the image below:

    Then select the Privacy tab in the Internet Options dialog box.

    It is very important that the Privacy level not be set any higher than Medium High. This will result in blocking your attempts to log in.

  3. It is also important to verify that your browser isn't caching the pages (storing and re-displaying pages it previously viewed). This is because while the page may have the same 'name' as the last time you looked at it, the content changes very frequently. Symptoms that your browser may be caching pages are:
    1. Being unable to log in or unable to log out once logged in
    2. Not seeing something you've posted to a forum until you either shut down all your browser windows and then re-browse to the forums.

    In Internet Explorer, verify that your browser isn't caching pages using the Tools->Internet Options dialog as above, but use the Settings... button on the General tab as shown below.

Still Can't Log In?

Usually rebooting your system will make the above settings take hold, Especially if you use AOL

If it still fails to work, follow these final suggestions...

Website Member Account Tips


In order to make this website easier to access and more friendly, here are a few tips.
  1. The passwords generated by this website if you forget yours, or just created a new account are not what I'd really consider friendly and easy to remember, you should visit the Account Information and enter a new password. Enter it carefully because it matters whether you use upper or lower case letters. Pick something you can remember but others can't easily guess.
  2. Also feel free to fill in any information you want people to know about you ie: boat name, etc. in the "Bio" section.".
  3. If you have a small picture you'd like to attach of yourself, family, etc.., you can do this in the "Account Information" section as well. The website will take care of resizing and compressing it for the web. This will be show up in your profile and also as a small Camera Icon next to your name in the who's online block. Feel free to change it from time to time by simply attaching a new photo. The old one automatically replaced by the new photo.
  4. If you don't like to have to login each time you visit from your personal computer, you can also change the Remember Me setting to something like 1 Month in the Account Information area and you'll be automatically logged in from this computer for up to one month, until you Log Out of the website, or delete stored browser cookies from your computer.
  5. PLEASE keep your email address current in Account Information at all times. This is where the website will send information to you in the event you lose your password. This email address is not exposed directly to any members on this website. Please report any instances where you see your email address listed explicitly and we'll see that it gets hidden or removed.
