It might be a nice feature for us to add formal areas for different manufacturers where their customers could have discussions as suggested above.
I am a big fan of owners groups. You find out what's wrong with the boats and why people still love them. No one but an owner can tell you that. Some owners groups are out there now and I don't see people jumping from those established boards to come here but there are a lot of owners that have almost no owners group or groups that would like to move.
With the modern advances in our own software
perhaps we can make them wotk better here. Having CF in the same building makes it also a short trip downstairs to your personal owners group. Most owners groups are open to all interested so if there is a boat anyone out there is thinking about find the owners group!
It would be nice to have an owners group registry available on the site with the links to get there. I'm not sure about what tools would work well. Perhaps a alphabetical grouping as a thread with a top sticky. New groups found get added to the thread then removed when the sticky is updated.
