    Jimmy Cornell, the author of the two famous books --
    World Cruising Routes & World Cruising Handbook,
    sets up a website:
    to cope with the ever-changing world cruising information.
    The site now covers 1,317 ports in 190 countries and pretty
    up-to-date. Check it out.
    However,  I still believe the best way to collect cruising info
    is setting up a database such that all of us -- cruisers, can be direct
    and instant authors.  Imagine, if you bother a few minutes to enter Today's
    diesel  price in Cape Town, post an official's photo when he requested bribe
    in Suez yesterday or report a light malfunction in Chile... and people in
    Spain read it as you write. The value of such channel is beyond description.
    With this goal in mind, I set up the site:
    so every one of you can be a direct author!  You can enter a log via
    internet browser or you can send an email via HAM/SSB. It automatically
    enters the database. You can edit it any time and insert photo links to your
    heart's content.  Check out what Geoff Schultz has entered with his boat
    Blue Jacket!  That's a lot of first-hand cruising information in the
    7knots uses informix database engine.  It can handle a most discriminating
    search in a blink among 10 million records.   All we needs now is that 10
    million reports!   Every bit counts.
