    [NOTE FROM FER: This message originally included a link to the gcap
    online shop as well as a copy of an advertisement showing a pretty
    woman wearing some of their merchandise.
    There's nothing wrong with making fun of over-blown, tacky
    advertising, but we can't include things like that in NavList
    messages because they are distributed to some members by email, and
    those copies would be interpreted both by automated systems and also
    casual readers as actual advertisements leading to spam blacklisting]

    In the past I have occasionally perused the goCaptain site looking for navigation threads. When I visited the site a few days ago I was horrified at how tacky and commercialised it had become. New owner?

    Whatever the reason goCaptain is now off my radar. I suppose it could be worse. One day I may load the Navlist site and discover that in order to use a sextant you must be a half naked female.  Mr FER please keep navlist simple and non-commercial. If you are in need of funds make another request for donations. The last time you begged for money I donated which for me is very unusual - I rarely pay for anything on the net. The demonstrates how much I appreciate the site the way it is.
