Welcome To The Grampian Owners Marina
to visit our companion Grampian Discussion Group on Yahoo
Greetings from the new webmaster!
Hello everyone. I'm James Burke - Ken has graciously passed the reins to me as the new webmaster for the Grampian Owners Marina.
I've discussed my plans for the site with Ken and he seems to like my ideas. We're still in sailing season so updates to the site will be a little slow, but as Autumn gets colder and the boats are hauled out for winter, I plan to start rolling out updates to the site's appearance and systems. One of the first major changes anticipated is an update to the layout of the entire site to make it compatible with any kind of mobile device, and utilizing a template engine to allow for light or dark themes. I'm hoping to have this finished and rolled out by the end of October. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me or Ken at [email protected]
A New Webmaster
After 18 years I am giving up control of the Grampian Owners Marina
and I have found someone who has the interest, qualifications and ability to update the site and
maintain it. Since I sold my G26, the level of interest I have in the
boats and the site have diminished considerably as readers of the site
can probably recognize. A new, modern fresh look is needed to ensure
this site fulfills my original goal of being the main source of Grampian
knowledge on the web.
I will allow the new Webmaster to introduce himself. I am sure that once
he has reviewed all the site data I have provided to him you will start
to see his impact on the website. He owns both a G26 and a Discovery so
is well aquainted with Grampians.
Thank you to everyone who
has supported the site and myself. Without your input, the site could
not exist. I encourage you to renew your interest in the site and to
support the new webmaster with new material and photos for the site.
Thank You All,
For Sale/Wanted Listings
Unfortunately the For
Sale/Wanted Listings that were very active have not seen much activity
in recent years. Hopefully the new Webmaster will revitalize this area
and it will be looked to again as the site to goto if you want to buy or
sell a Grampian.
Due to the inactivity I have
deleted all of the old listings that were at least two years old. If you
would like your listing to be replaced, just let us know and we do have
a new G26 For Sale listing just added.
received stories of the failure of the cast aluminum fitting on the bow
to which your forestay and jib or furling gear attach. The latest report
is on a G28. If you look at
Item 14 on the G26 FAQ
page you will find some discussion on this subject and possible
alternatives for attaching your stay and jib.
Remember, rather than look through the whole site to see what has
changed, select the
Site Changes page for
information on what changes have been made.
I want to thank all those owners who have sent information and encourage
others to follow their example. I especially want to thank those people
who have made a donation towards the upkeep of the site. Please support
the new webmaster to build this site back up to its former level of
Don't forget, this site
depends upon your input of information and photos and of
donations to keep it going. Please help.
