Hi George. Great to hear from you again. Your the site link in Junk Info > Useful Links > Members' Sites and Blogs' still works!
So who will help George with his German to English translation of his lovely website? You don't need to read German, just English!

Your mastery of english as a second language to be envied.
I had a look at the home page and could only spot three small errors:
The boat more than once proved it's seaworthyness, and is also regularily used for long voyages.
The boat more than once proved its seaworthiness and is also regularly used for long voyages.
The use of the apostrophe in english can be confusing, even for native english speakers! Used to show letters that have been taken out like li'l (little) or it's (it is) and to indicate possession, as in its colour, its shape. I'm certain that in your text, it's should be its. there's a good explanation here:
I thought I'd post here so you can copy and paste, and others can help work through the pages.
So, have I missed anything on the home page anybody?
and who is up for checking the 'news' page?
