Lightbulb Any Chance of a Bavaria Yacht Forum ?

I've just noticed that this site has a section for manufacturers' forums. Is there any chance of getting a Bavaria Yacht forum?

Although one of the commonest boats in Europe, the only Bavaria forum is exclusively paid-for, and this loses a lot of potential members. I like your solution of opting-in for payment, and plan to do so in the near future.

I'd be happy to help with any admin, moderating etc. I also know members of other forums that would be very interested.

TIA

Re: Any chance of a Bavaria Yacht forum?

There probably should also be a Jeanneau and Bennetau forum as well but I can imagine that it could get ugly when some children get bored and decide to do a hit and run job

The idea of "paid for" Bavaria forum sucks. I'm happy the Jeanneau forum is free, which probably means that a dedicate Jeanny forum is not needed here.

So maybe a Bavaria forum here could be a good idea for boosting numbers.

Indeed, and it looks like you just volunteered to mod a Jeanneau forum!

While there is no Bavaria Yachts Social Group yet, such groups already exist for Jeanneau, Beneteau, Hunter, etc. Since the OP has volunteered to take care of such a forum, have at it.

Here's a link to Cruisers & Sailing Forums - Social Groups to get you started.
