This not for profit web site is operated totally on a voluntary basis - even though it takes countless
hours each week to maintain, it is something we both enjoy immensely & find extremely rewarding.
However, recently we totted up our expenditure on this "labour of love" and were concerned to discover the real costs. That's why we have provided the facility, for those who are able, to donate
something towards the ongoing costs in 2006. Your donation will help ensure we can continue to bring you the "world's most popular seafarers web site" for many years to come.
