Hi Alex-

What I like to do when I'm looking for ideas of colors use, I refer to a few online resources for palettes.

Check out some of these sites!

Too many colours for my liking, i suggest you pick a colour scheme. Maybe two colours you like that look good together.

Hey Alex... you've been hard at work trying to tweak your site, eh?

Personally, I find your tabs a little jarring against that soft blue background. I would suggest either making your tabs white and make the text a darker tone of the blue background, or make your tabs a darker tone of the blue background with white text. You can use www.colorschemer.com to give you ideas on what colors go well together. You just enter in the Hex # or RGB values and then a color chart comes up. You can darken the scheme or lighten the scheme. I think this will give you a good idea as to what colors work well together.

HI Alex

I'm not really sure what you mean by "Nav Tabs move at all?"

I will tell you this though... I prefer the tab set up on your Watersport page. It looks more uniform and professional. I would center your whole menu bar though.

Right before your table code, add <!--<div align=center>--> and at the end of all your table codes, add <!--</div>-->

Ahh... okay... I understand. One other thing you could try if you really wanted to is to put another two-column widget in front of the 1st column. That should bump it more towards the middle. It's not that big of a deal... it still looks nice left-aligned.
