Any members of the SRO board lurking around? Any ides what happened last night? I have some thoughts that Jeremy got fed up with some of the BS that was going on.  Dave S, Richard, are you there?? This sucks....

Hey Frank. Yeah that really stinks. I think your right about being fed up. What a shame. Maybe it's just a short term thing. I hope.

Im puzzled - I'm was rookie member of SRO - there were a couple of replies to one of my posts last night and I never got to see what they were 

So what happened that made Jeremy bolt? I never saw the BS (at least anything more than usual)?

What a shame, it's a fantastic resource. By all means, let's hope it's temporary.

I'm sure he got feed up with the garbage. I know I would have! Hope we hear something soon as his email said. It only takes a few to messup a great thing. I think Dave S summed it it in his post last night.  SRO is a great resource don't know how many tips I've picked up from it. Thanks everybody for the info and tips.

Sure caught me by surprise. He (Jeremy) just put all that effort into revamping the site so something mus have really ticked him off. What 'garbage' are you guys referring to? Something specific? And what was the gist of DaveS's post?

I sure hope this can be salvaged.

Hey Dom, I wouldn't count on it being short term. I think Jeremy had had about enough grief. Seems it only takes a few to undo what so many of us tried to make great!  Oh well....I guess thats the way. Moved the boat last week so good by Barnegat.......What's the chance of you guys cruising to the Chesapeake next season ??

I had only been an SRO member for a few months prior to buying my Sea Ray in September but it had already becme an invaluable resource.  Having access to that knowledge base was so helpful.  I too hope it returns soon.

Hey guys, glad to see that some of ya'll made the move.  I emailed Jeremy, well I replied to his email, asking what it would take for me to take over SRO.com.  There's just too much info, contacts, members, etc. to let it all go.  If anyone knows a direct email for him, please let him know and to contact me!

Whew,

Thought I'd lost you guys!  I sent a note to Jeremy and to fwebster to find out what transpired.....I sure will miss the best boat board on the web if Jeremy doesn't get it back online.  Recommend we all e-mail as many SROers thatwe are in contact with and designate this as our temporary cyber transient dock.  I have fwebster, jlevin, ylwjacket, PN, Dancin Dave, FC3, and a few other e-mails and I will vector them here.

Frank, you coming to Solomons this weekend?

SRO was a great information resource.  Thank you Jeremy for sponsoring the board.  Thanks also to members for your collective wisdom and for helping new boaters like myself climb the learning curve. 

Shame on you Sea Ray for not putting your full support behind Jeremy and the SRO community.

Hello all from Cap10Pat.  I'm afraid this is permanent.  I've been a regular on the BoatUS board too and only tonight noticed the BoatGroups forums.   I should say that some months ago I posted on SRO that if the site should go down we should all meet on the BoatUS boards. Despite Dave's reply message to the contrary at the time, here we are!

Jeremy, thanks for so many good nights - and days. Especially those long ones between projects as a computer consultant. And they can be long.  And, I too considered offering help or takeover of the boards.  But I have a feeling the problems were even worse than described.  Anyway, Jeremy, Great Job.

If there's a will, there's a way! 

I'm sure I'm not alone in saying this, but I would be happy to purchase a new domain, or purchase sro.com, host a new forum, website, etc. (I've already called in a few favors to see what can be done).  The important thing is to be able to have a data dump from SRO.com to a new site, therefore preserving the invaluable information. 

If legal issues are a problem, I'm in law enforcement and can call in some favors.  If money is the issue, I'm sure we all will agree to once again pay a small yearly amount.  If privacy would be an issue in the data dump, this too can be worked through. 

Let's no speculate what has happened to or with Jeremy, just let him know how much we appreciate the idea or SRO.COM, the hard work, time, dedication, investment, etc. he has put forth for SRO.COM.

SAVE SRO.COM

Regards,

Jim

I'm all for saving SRO.com in the short time I've been a member it's
been GREAT - a website both the financee and I like to go to!   
Her take on it is that it somehow had something to do with the Sea
Ray questionaire that just got sent around. I hope she's wrong.
We're in for hanging out here till something gets decided. I was only
partially through the archives.

From BoaterEd:  I tried to reach him.
I did a “WhoIs” on the URL, called the phone number and a guy answered. I asked if he was Jeremy but the person asked what it was about. I said I was a member of SRO and would he give or sell the data so I could upload it as a resource. The person said I had the wrong number. I repeated the number back to him as listed on the “WhoIs” results and he verified that is his number but he said he had nothing to do with SRO. He then said a different name. Like Jason or something.

There are many new domains available: Officialsearayowner.com, thesearayowner.com etc. 

I'll purchase in the morning if I have ya'lls support.

Regards n gnite

Jim

My family was looking for a support group for my withdrawel.  They started saying:

"Hi, my name is Mark"  --- Hi Mark  --- "I just lost my friends at SRO.com"  ---- Tell us about it Mark---

I am glad to find ya'all.  I was thinking that the Searay survey must have turned up that the website was a source for info on Sea Rays and caused a rub, but I should know better than to speculate.  I am very sorry this happened as I too really appreciated the great technical insight from very knowledgeable guys. 

I hope the site re-appears....

the best thing we could all do is carry on - sure will miss all the info

Amex, you make a good point.  Maybe if we take SeaRay out of the name all together, who knows.  I have found free software for a new forum.  We can call it what ever we decide on.  I'm not sure if we'll be able to migrate the information from the old SRO website, but we'll have to wait for Jeremy to respond.  If you guys are up to it, we can start this almost immediately.  As for right now, I don't see why I can't do it for almost and probably nothing from you guys.  I could possibly work on some website advertising or sponsorship to pay for any future costs (website hosting, etc).

Lemme know!

Regards,

Jim

Hey guys I'm glad I found some of you here. I wish there was a way to know who is who. Some of the screen names are the same but I remember your signature pictures as much anything else.

I hope everyone will give Jeremy a break. As far as someone rushing to "buy SRO" or hound Jeremy, don't be vultures. If it was "for sale" or for "sell out" don't you think that Jeremy would have done so by now. You have made your positions clear so let it go for now and let Jeremy decide what he is going to do. It sounds like some did't get the 2nd e-mail for Premier Members that says that we should hear from Jeremy in the next week. A few on the B.E. forum were already questioning what's going to happen to the dues. I got my $20 worth a long time ago, he can keep my money. If all Jeremy wanted to do was to make a few bucks don't you think we would have seen ads plastered all over everthing by now. If Jeremy wanted to just dump everything don't you think he would have the first time Brunswick approached him.  The bigger the site got the more legal issues there were to consider I'm sure. I doubt very seriously that everything will be lost but if he pulled the plug and walked away after some of the trash that was printed the days leading up to and especially Sunday night I wouldn't blame him.

 I think it would be helpful if you aren't using your SRO screen name to refrence it here, maybe in your signature. I was glad to see Sthil's boat pic again! This isn't SRO but knowing who is who makes it a little easier.

Thank You to the Owners of this forum for letting us meet up here.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm here now after finding out about this site on BE.  I didn't even know BoatUS had this since I usually hung out at BE and SRO.

I've been to the clubsearay.com site, but it doesn't seem to be as active as SRO was.

Is someone collecting emails of everyone that's interested in the new SRO so everyone can be contacted.
