thanks for your comments Mike. In the BMW membership group, the list of "services" to other members are really not mandatory. There have been accounts when some members were asked for help of some kind and just weren't available to assist. It just provides the members with some people to call to see if the services they indicated are available.

I just thought this added feature may keep our members closer and I've always wanted to help cruisers who come into my area as we have been offered incredible help from total strangers when we extensively traveled the Chesapeake Bay for three years. One night we were anchored out in the East River on Mobjack Bay. The evening temperatures were going to bottom out to below freezing. We watched a man get into his dinghy from shore and rowed out to us. He was concerned about the cold night and insisted on us coming to shore with him to have dinner and stay in their spare bedroom. We agreed to have dinner and when we were to head back to our vessel, they showed us to the spare room that was ready for us. It just showed how strong the bond is between sailors. He owned a HR 42.

I'm not advocating that our members get to be house guest but just having a mooring available, laundry, or a hot shower is an incredible gift to wayward sailors.
