IWAI Waterways Discussion Forum

ATTENTION: Due to an upgrade to IWAI websites, it has become necessary to archive the IWAI Discussion Forum. The software used to build this forum is no longer supported and is not compatible with software currently used by IWAI. The IWAI Discussion Forum will become a read only archive, accessible from http://www.iwai.ie/forum/ effective 1/1/2020. Following discussion by IWAI Executive it has been decided that an IWAI Discussion Forum will be maintained as part of IWAI's website on a pilot basis for 2020. This new IWAI Discussion Forum will give read only access to non IWAI members. In order to conform with IWAI's GDPR policy, all members who intend to use the forum will need to re register. IWAI will use its membership system to verify membership status. Alias identifiers will not be permitted and the identity of moderators will be known. Members will be able to register on the new IWAI Discussion Forum from 1/1/2020. The forum is moving to a new platform soon, as the current platform Phorum is old and no longer being maintained the current forum is now in READ ONLY mode , while all topics and replies are migrated to the new platform, hopefully the migration will be successful and nothing will be lost , but there is a possibility due to the age of the old system that we may not be able to transfer everything , so the old forum will be left as reference but in read only Mode.

new forum is available at New IWAI Forum

Online since 1999 with almost 1,500 registered users and more than 80,000 posts! Everything and anything of inland waterways interest is open for discussion and debate. Please read the Forum Terms and Conditions. We ask all users to be civil, courteous & forgiving towards each other!  
This forum is currently read only. You can not log in or make any changes. Please use new forum platform at www.iwai.ie/bbpress.
