Too many forums in Forum by Make?

Forklift would like to see Forum by Make reduced to just Trawlers and Others.

What do you think?

RE: Too many forums in Forum by Make?

Based on the current market, forums by make is ok with me.

Reason, we*have so many boats today that are*marketed as trawlers. Huge yachts, going as trawlers, and fast boats, going as trawlers.

A trawler is a trawler, some have galley up, some have galley down.**
Now there is a forum....

I would vote for a forum based on vintage.

RE: Too many forums in Forum by Make?

John,
I agree with your last post and would like to see a forum on hull design and topside design also. What is the downside to all the forum by make that we make so little use of?.

RE: Too many forums in Forum by Make?

For another idea..... Since so many manufacturers have called their boats "trawlers" to cash in on the image this term conjures up, perhaps a forum titled "Questions by Make" or some such thing would work. Someone who has a question or comment that specifically applies to their GB or Willard or Mainship or whatever could post it to this forum with the make in the subject. Like "GB wiring question" or "Windshield wipers on a Willard," or "What to look for in a used Mainship."

This whole site is theoretically for trawler owners--- hence the name.* So I'm not sure how many "others" there might be with the categories "Trawlers" and "Others."

RE: Too many forums in Forum by Make?

Unless it's a space/cost issue I like the division by make. There is little use since most of us also belong to make specific sites. GB and CHB both have excellent sites of their own which keep those questions off here. If the space/cost is an issue then I'd be happy deleting that section entirely since most every question could be posed in the other excellent division of topics.

2 cents,
Ken

Just call 1-800-ACORN and they will tell you how to vote. OR I just clicked on the circle that I wanted and it filled in the circle and hit the enter or vote box. Then it showed me the percentage of votes for each of the three options.
