One indication of YF's popularity is... when that august group is mentioned, as well as having at least one of it's activities identified, by none other than The Wall Street Journal. The Friday (October 19) edition's 'Journal Weekend' section, page W2, contains the article "Stalkers of the High Seas", by Robert Frank, which goes on to decry the business of 'yacht-spotting'. Seems that some of the high-end owners--whose yachts appear fairly regularly on this site and which include "Lady Moura", "Tatoosh", "Octopus", and "Rising Sun"--are miffed by the (gasp!) stalkers among you. The article mentions revealing "intimate details of the yachts--from the size of their engines and upper deck Jacuzzis to their mishaps." "More than a dozen sites carry some form of yacht-spotting information including...yachtforums.com." It gets better: an editor of a popular yacht mag says, Gosh Ms. B, I belong to that world and so do a lot of others here as well.
