Sail & Power Classifications

CF has several "sail" classifications but only one "power"
There's a world of difference between fast boats like Sea Rays and slow boats like trawlers. How about dividing the power forum into slow and fast categories?

Re: Sail & Power Classifications

We typically only make a division when there is a clear trend of content that warrants being branched off. Forums tend to not be a "build it and they will come".

On a vaguely related note - any merit in splitting the engines forum between Diesel / Petrol (gas) and Electric / Hybrid?

Whilst I won't say that electric power has taken off - certainly more interest than a few years back.

A vaguely related answer is there might be discussion going on about it.
