As an SOA member, if your Forum Account is active, you can log in here : 

Members Forum


If you do not have an active Forum Account, you will need to create an account. This is a two-stage process:

First, you need to register your details using the link below :

Register a Forum Account

Having registered you will be be sent an automated “challenge email” asking you to confirm your name, boat name etc so that we can check that your SOA membership is valid, before we authorise your account.

If you are not a member but are thinking of buying a Southerly we will authorise your account once you have responded to the “challenge email”, but you will only be able to view the “for sale” section of the site.

If you are serious about buying, the £20 membership allows access to members and the technical parts of the site and is a worthwhile investment.

Any problems please email ADMIN
