    Yeah I hate it too, similar to the Dana Wharf website. The old site had everything you needed. This seems to be one of those decisions where companies make decisions to make things easier on themselves but annoys all their clients.

    Not sure what you mean by "better". I don't care that it cost twice to five times as much to design as the old site or that it may integrate better with their book keeping software, when you take information away as Mike pointed out then I don't see that being "better".

    A lot of guys like to watch how many open spots there are for the next day and decide at the last minute whether to jump on a boat, it was never exact the next morning but it did give a barometer for how crowded the boat would be.

    I think it's better in terms of homepage layout and navigation. It's a lot simpler and easier to use. The only downside is the software they used for booking change and it is a really, really nice feature to see how many people are booked on each trip. Overall it's a pretty slick site. If you wan't to cherry pick lower load days just call in, not that hard.

    Your right its never exact. My suggestion would be to go fish when the fishing is good or you have the time.

    Looks like a very good reason to stay in Utah and sit this season out as a way of protest.

    Shoot...some people cant even afford to go fishing on these nice luxury trips. I for one will be lucky to attend 1 or 2 trips out of these landings this year. Count your blessings fellas and dont lose perpective on all we are spoiled to have.

    The old site was easy to use ,To check trips and see if you need to book now or can wait a bit and get your friends and family together on a date or trip....call In to see? talk about old school.....I hope they didn't give more then a free 3/4 day trip on the malahini for the change

    bottom line, I went on it and got frustrated and moved on to Seaforth and Point Loma to book a trip. I'm younger, not old school, so that's not the issue. It is not user friendly. You don't know what days boats are coming or going, don't know how many are booked, available. Just a bad design. Cost them my money, that's all I can say.

    Allen Iverson wants to know if we're really talking about site navigation characteristics (or maybe it was practice?).

    This thread and the BITCHING therein demonstrates this fact: 1st World Problems...LOL

    actually this thread tells H and M their potential customers are not thrilled with their new site. I know if my customers did not like my site I would want to know about it. This isn't about fishing, its about business. Some of you obviously don't know or comprehend the difference. I for one want to support our local fleet. I would want to have the most user friendly site to attract customers, not send them to the competition. If you actually owned a business you would understand that feedback from the customers, good and bad, can help you grow and deliver a better product.

    In retort, I don't have to own a business to know the habits of customers because I know the characteristics of them, as I am one. Not to mention, my daily life is immersed with dealing with them. The point that I'm making is that as opposed to giving the site a try over time, the premise of this thread demonstrates the propensity for U.S. consumers to bitch and moan over the smallest of things, regardless of overall life perspective. Your lack of technological savvy, or inability to adapt to changing conditions highlights the fact that many of us lack TRUE perspective.

    People lack basic necessities for life and we're going back and forth over a website...aka, 1st world problems. Can't please everyone, and this is no different. For every client such as yourself who may decide to take business elsewhere, there are many of us who will retain perspective and outlook, and GO FISHING, regardless of how pretty a website is or is not.

    I've used the site recently, and didn't have an issue with it. It remains to be seen if this is a common theme or not, and if it warrants a change.
