We're sorry, this board was being used by one group to slander another. The information was then being forward by e-mail from a union individual  to various industry sources. This violated the Terms of Use and cast a very negative view on the discussion board and the web site.

 The postings were questionable (coming from one computer using different names) and were then e-mailed to the ships making it to appear that this was valid information because it appeared on Boatnerd.com.

This wasn't appreciated by the crews and I took a lot of heat over it, all for something I didn't post or endorse.
The ships don't have web access so they did not get the full picture.

This board was set up to allow thoughtful discussion of the Great Lakes Shipping industry and not for one group to sling mud at another.
