More samples from the original Boat Name Page.
The Boat Name Page was one of the first web pages in the world coded in notepad and uploaded on a 14k modem. Boat name stories were submitted by Usenet rec.boats users and have been coming in via email ever since! It evolved into one of the first “websites” in 1993 and set examples for this new thing we now call “e-commerce”.
Every year newspapers would call in the spring for the latest greatest stories from the web and we’d get a little plug, but back then nobody knew what the internet was. We stayed the course and helped pave the way. You’re welcome!
