The general idea is we started with a small set of sub forums
and we can add as many as we like. We want each section to have regular activity so we group things so that can happen under the current
I think it's fair to say we won't be starting any empty forum sections soon unless new traffic patterns warrants them. So if for example a dinghy group emerges with a membership
that participates regularly then the steps will happen to make them a new section.
To a great extent we took the approach that size of vessel does not matter and the topics are generic to all. We made exceptions for special mono hull
and multi hull
discussions because they are sometimes very different though not that much. Many of the topics apply to power boats too just as much as sail.
Some of the people on this board are still sailing dinghy's in an attempt to move up to cruising.
Some dinghy sailors are still sailing the boats they prefer. People don't always "move up". I also cruise
with folks that only two years ago only raced. They raced for 20 years and actually are very new to the whole concept
. I also know people that sail dinghy but cruise
power. Also people that cruised both. There isn't one pigeon hole that fits all boaters but many if not most of the topics can be shared.
