Not a very stirring forum under the best of circumstances these days, but the site appears to be out to lunch now...

Somebody probably didn't pay for the domain name. Or there could be an issue with a DNS server pointing the domain name to a different IP address. Or they could have just shut it down.

I am guessing that they are just having some technical difficulties. The site was working yesterday afternoon and Wakeside.com is working fine.

Kind of a bummer that that site does not get more traffic. The site was huge when it was malibuboatowners.com The switch to Wakeside made most of the Malibu people defect to themalibucrew.com which is almost as big as the old mbo.

I guess us inboard owners are a bunch of snobs and don't want to interact with those other boat owners. Kind of a shame really because wakesiderides is a great site with lots of good how to content etc and the have no big brother and allow and encourage group buys.

I know when I'm looking to compare competing brands, wakesiderides is where I can be found. ;)

Aha! But I also see you posting on The Malibu Crew. In fact, didn't they recently make you a moderator, due in large part to your prolific posting over there? Hmmmm.... never mind...maybe I'm thinking of this TMC...;)

I'm guessing / hoping they are just having issues. Looks like it went down for a while yesterday, came back up, and went down again.

If it's down for the count, there goes a lot of my documenting work/time...:(

hey P_PHAT,

I'm sure the admin (Jason?) has all of the webpages backed up somewhere. At a minimum, he could send us the HTMLs and we could post them on here :)

I planned on using all your hard work as a guide for my own install since we have the same boat :)

I am going to go with LP on this one and say it a DNS issue.
