Who is 'Club Ad Manager'?

Thanks Matt for setting this up. I think it will help get questions and suggestions for enhancements out in the open.

For those of you who are browsing this site, there is one question that I field fairly often, and that has to do with ads that have been posted by the user, "Club Ad Manager." Club Ad Manager is actually me. When we launched this new site, we sent emails out to all parties who had ads on the old Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club Trading Dock pages. We asked all of our prior advertisers to migrate their ads over to the new site. Of course some did and some did not. As a service to those who did not migrate their ads, I made the decision to post their ads here on the new site. This seemed logical, and a better approach than simply removing the ads entirely. As I posted them, I created an alias, "Club Ad Manager. " If you see ads posted under that name, please note that the "Contact Seller" links back to me. While I am happy to forward any requests that I receive to the actual seller of the item, a more expedient approach is to contact the seller via the information included in the actual ad description. On these ads, you will see phone numbers and email addresses in the description copy.

These ads will expire mid July, so this will soon become a moot point. Thanks for the understanding and thank-you for using

Starting A Blog

Hello, my name is Matt, and I am the lead developer working on I am starting this blog to record progress as we continue to improve the site and to establish a public place where users can always go to post questions and feedback. It will also be a place where we discuss broader topics relevant to the antique boating community.

We hope you find the Trading Dock useful and I want to thank everyone who has given us feedback so far.
