  • CHQ Ownership Change

    Today is an exciting day for CrownieHQ. We formally announce the new owner of the forum, Mike Taylor of Bald Mike's!

    The forum was designed with the intention of providing a place for boaters and friends to share their advice, ideas, thoughts, and experiences.
    This has happened and it has happened because of the people who are
    members. To turn over the site to Mike is not a difficult decision. He
    knows what the site is about. He knows what makes it work. Mike has the time and the capabilities to manage and improve CrownieHQ.

    "I am very excited for this opportunity and look forward to allowing such a wonderful forum to continue to grow. There is so much great information to be shared between boaters and I am thankful that I was asked to take it over and see it into the future. We all agree that CrownieHQ is like family, so I want to thank Greg and Bent for kickstarting it and bringing us all together to the best and most genuine forum on the web! I couldn't be prouder to be a part of it." - Bald Mike

    As our lives change, our focus changes. It is only fair for us to step aside and let someone else take the reins. It has been our privilege to start this forum and watch it grow. We ask you continue the unwavering support and dedication to CrownieHQ and to Mike.

    Greg and Bent

    I just popped on the forum and started a thread congratulating Bald Mike for keeping the tradition going.

    Moderators can delete that thread if they choose.
