Technical Library

Being the geek I am, I have been collecting manuals for all the technical components on my boat. I share them with my sailing co-horts (sons, daughter, college buddy) via a Google drive. It is basically a Google drive of PDFs of the manuals I fond for the components on my boat.

Is there such a place already, within these forums, where I can either get information, or put information? I do not want to duplicate efforts.

I have a 450S, and so most of my information will center around that model. But, once we contrive a means of collecting and organizing the information it will extend easily to other models.

People who buy there boats new get a whole slew of paper manuals. People who buy them used (me) sometimes not so lucky.

Google provides gigabytes of information storage for sharing on the cloud. Others do as well. All for free. Let's use those services.

Thoughts?

Re: Technical Library

Great idea and thanks in advance. Your post is as good as anywhere to share manuals but I'm not a forum guru.

"Lagoon Owners Group" on Face Book has a files section where I have been trying to encourage people to post User manuals etc etc. It is easy to upload to there, then any one can download a copy as required.
