The forum looks 'cleaner' and better organised in this new format but I have to confess that I found the ready visibility of the sub-forum titles in the older format rather convenient.
That is my point. I have picked up more information on seamanship in the short time I have been on this website than I did in my 4 years in the navy.About the only application in the navy was knowing that for the particular surface search radar , the maximum range was the distance to the horizon and how to estimate it according to the height of the antenna.>>One of the things I have found interesting is - maybe it is just true in the United States Navy - if you were in a "specialty rating" how little you knew of "seamanship" as seen in the postings of the moderators and others whom I consider "the real sailors" on these forums. Thanks !<<
You would be right. What I was trained for as a ships serviceman (A supply rating) had nothing to do with seamanship. What I learned, I went out of my way to pick up on my own as it was a matter of considerable interest to me.
Hi PhilWelcome to the new message board.
Please post your comments and suggestions about Encyclopedia Titanica here.
I had been getting an email once a week (always on Saturday mornings), and it also stopped a few weeks ago, I would guess probably at the same time. I had changed nothing.... I don't seem to have received the usually weekly Titanica message board recently - last one was 3rd March...
