The Captain's Report

October 21, 2001 Santa Barbara, CA. Vol. 1 No. 6
The Captain's Report, a new feature of The Captain's Log, is a weekly newsletter bringing the latest news of the Seaview and her crew...

On a personal note
You will note that I have not made my usual announcement on the Captain's Log mail listing about this weeks update. It seems that the Captain's Report is not appreciated by some. I have once again received emails "telling" me that the Report is simply a waste of time and is just an shallow attempt to put something new on the Log, to cover up the fact that it's the only way I can get new updates...

I had thought that the Report could be a little bit of fun for everyone... a kind of momentary escape from reality. It never dawned on me, I guess, that writing on your own website could be a problem.

I do appreciate those of you that have taken the time to vote in the polls in recent weeks. But I'm still considering if the Captain's report will continue as a part of the Log.

Weekly Poll
Due to the possibility of no issue number seven of the Captain's Report, there is no poll question this week... Once again... thanks to those who have voted in previous weeks...

Your vote should be made by private email. Results to be included in next weeks Captain's Report.
