Site history


Pushing hard during Tjörn Runt 1990.

These pages started life roughly at the turn of the century when I was in charge of the web of a multihull association. One of my ambitions was to show and explain different types of sailing multihulls. My own boat represented the coastal racer/cruisers belonging to the International Micro Multihull class that came to life in the mid 1980s.

A couple of years later the running of that club web was taken over by people with an agenda quite different from mine.

In early 2004 I got myself a high-speed Internet connection and bundled with it is some space on a server. I up-loaded my Scarlattikvarten stuff there. So far all I had used was basic html plus frame sets.

In the summer of 2004 I started to learn about CSS (Cascaded Style Sheets) and this inspired me to redesign this web site. Apart from working on the styling and navigation I also added quite a bit of new material this time.

Since then I made no changes to the typography for many years. I just added new material at a slow pace: up-dating the list of modifications, adding a page summarising my experience of and thoughts on trampolines etc.

The fall of 2017 saw a major re-wamping of this site with the aim of making it work not only for computer screens but also for smart phones and other devices with small screens. I did so by switching from hand coded HTML and CSS to using a static website generator.
