Login problems

homer-dohHi folks. Yesterday it  came to my attention that some people have had problems logging in or registering for the site the past couple of months. I’d been wondering why traffic seemed a little slow. I thought it was just the winter doldrums.

Sorry! The problem is fixed now.

What happened is, a few months ago I installed some software that was supposed to block spammers from accessing the site (you’d be amazed at how many spam bots try to register on a daily basis). Unfortunately, in addition to blocking spam, the software ended up blocking a number of of legit logins, both current subscribers and new visitors trying to join the site.

So as of an hour ago I’ve turned the blocker off and it will stay off while I search for a better solution. To those who had issues logging in, you shouldn’t have any going forward. (But if you do, please email me directly and I’ll get you fixed up.)

Here’s to the start of a new boating season. The cool news it that wahoo.seatoad.net now has close to 200 registered members. That’s a lot of Wahoo! owners! Looking forward to swapping info and stories with you all in months ahead.

New downloads and Ray Curry too!

Thanks to subscriber Tom M., the Downloads page now includes three full-page magazine reviews of the Wahoo! 1900 and 2100. Full of juicy specs, test results, comments on construction and performance. Really interesting reading, even if you don’t own those exact models. Thanks Tom! BTW, Tom says he has more that he’ll try to send along so check back.

Also…and how cool is this…I got an email from a friend of Ray Curry, founder of Wahoo! Ray got wind that there’s a Wahoo! owners group and while he’s not into the Internet himself, he’s offered to answer question through his friend via email. So stay tuned.

New Wahoo! brochure on download page

New Wahoo! brochures available for download

I just added two original Wahoo! brochures to the Downloads pages. These came thanks to Hull Truth subscriber Bo Neato.

The first is 1990 brochure showing the 1650, 1750, and 14.5/16.5 models. It includes a classic picture of a Wahoo with passengers aboard cut into three pieces (the boat, not the passengers) and still afloat.

The second is a 1994 document listing descriptions, specs, and available options for the 1250, 1450, 1650, 1750, and 2100 models. Note the typo in the section describing the “1650 Stripper.” :-)
