I was accepted in the group then before I could post anything I was apparently blocked. If anyone is in that group could you please pass the word that I am a real person. I am not a huge social media person at all but I would like to get knowledge and share with the group. My Facebook account was under
Al Uminum ( figured they would get the name) I am rebuilding a 1978 37 DC and boat on Lake Cumberland KY.

Try to join the FB page again, just use a real name. I can approve you after that. Hard to keep out spam.

The facebook group has a "search within group" function, a "files" tab in the group with searchable pdf manuals, and is extremely user friendly when posting links and pictures of parts or issues that are too hard to otherwise explain. You're also more likely to get a quick response from FB as the app has notification settings that can be turned on or off to send a push notification to your phone/and or you can have the posts appear in your normal feed if they become popular enough. The forum doesn't have that ability.
