    1. When I tried to perform website validation using the validator in World Wide Web Consortium website It reported around 131 errors. You can view the results by clicking here

    2. The content on the homepage seems to be unreadable due to the color scheme. You can select a more friendlier color scheme for the site.

    I haven't done any thorough review in this case...

    I agree with codeex. The background image is making the page very err... busy and unwelcoming.

    There is already a lot going on with the pages, leave the background white and plain.

    Another reason... screen size/resolution I am using a 20 inch monitor right now and the image is being tiled.. very unprofessional looking.

    Follow codeex's link and fix those errors and that should clear up the table overlapping and link blocks etc.

    Just what we need, a phishing site.

    Site is too busy. By the time I finish reading your home page, I've missed my bus, no time to finish my cig and my bathroom break is over. The background swallows up your wording...which is way to long. Pictures are not quality. Your front page shoud be a one shot visual. This one comes in in bits and pieces. If you can't grab a net surfer at a glance and entice them to look further, they're off and looking for a quicker fix. Feed them baby bites... and the best first. Quick Clicks.

    If I asked for a review, I would want honesty so I could make my site better.

    Good luck.

    Things that irritate me most:
    1. Invalidity
    2. Pixel- and table-based design:
      Code:
          <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="948" height="1180">
            <col width="42">
            <col width="1">
      
            <col width="93">
            <col width="14">
            <col width="58">
            <col width="3">
            <col width="5">
            <col width="131">
            <col width="4">
            <col width="168">
            <col width="61">
      
            <col width="8">
            <col width="177">
            <col width="65">
            <col width="65">
            <col width="53">
      ... ugh.
    3. Poor workarounds using Javascript browser detection:
      Code:
            <script>tableWorkaround2_colheader()</script>
      Code:
            function tableWorkaround2_colheader() { if (document.all) { document.write('<col width="0">') }; }
      If this is really necessary (which I doubt it is), conditional comments should be used instead.
    4. The huge blocks of text -- I appreciate that English may not be your native language, but paragraphs are a must in most languages.
    5. Redundant Javascript:
      Code:
      <script>
        ns4 = document.layers && true;
        msie = document.all && true;
        function init() {
        }
      </script>
    6. Poor grammar:
      We built this company for anglers that are tired of getting took advantage of by big company fishing charters who don’t even know if there captains speak English.
      ... and overuse of exclamation marks:
      Last year in the first 2 months into the Puerto Vallarta fishing season we caught 39 giant yellow fin tuna over 200lbs after that we stopped counting which was a mistake because if they did keep records of this sort of thing we would have broken it!!!
