There are plenty of Scouters & good hearted people in industry who
will provide a place to post you Ship's web pages for free! We will be
adding a reference page to <http://www.sea.scouter.com> shortly with sites
(companies) who provide free "hosting" of Scout pages.
The only other expense is the time deciding exactly want you want to
tell the world about your Ship & it's program.
Bruce Johnson & the Web Team will be adding a page about your Ship to
the National Sea Exploring Web page. This is called a "placeholder"
webpage, with info where you are from, when you meet, your Council & who
charters your Ship.
When you decide to set up your own page, the placeholder will be replaced
with a "link" to the computer where your Ship's web page is.
If I can be of any help, contact me off-list at the address below.
