Every ad should show a photo or schematic of the hull, keel and rudder configuration. So many ads omit this information.

For non internet folk this would be difficult, I don't know many people that have a schematic of their boat unless they downloaded off the internet. So I have to pass.

A few pictures of the boat on the hard will give a good idea of the hull, keel and rudder configuration. I see these types of photos in many, many ads.

As much as I agree with you I can't figure out how to program photo identification. So I have to pass on making it a requirement.

You have no idea how much I agree with you. I was looking at an extremely well priced Trimaran that needed a little fiberglass work and photos of the affected area would have been extremely helpful but alas it was still in the water. GRRR it was such a great deal to!

  • number of fuel tanks (if you have this, "fuel capacity" would be "total fuel capacity"
  • number of engines (total HP)
  • Trailer included?
  • shore power Y/N (& type - like 2-30amp, or 50amp)
  • inverter Y/N
  • generator Y/N

Could only add total fuel capacity. Number of engines, total HP and Shore Power & Generator have been included. Inverter will be included under extras. Thank you for the input.

If anyone is wondering about the size issue and why I have had to draw lines, I have already written 853 lines of code for the ad form and another 677 lines of code for photo uploadng. There comes a point where you have to worry about loading time. We are almost there, but I am still looking for more input.

For what I have included see here. Untitled Document The form doesn't add anything to the database yet but thats on tomorrows list.

Let us know of the site when you are done. It sounds like it's going to be great!

Maybe one for the "extras",..........but for me knowing that a last Survey is available for inspection is a big plus in putting boats at the top of the list to assess (the newer the better, but IMO old is better than none - and in some respects more useful, if things have not been addressed after 5 years tells me a lot about owner and likely attitude to other things onboard that may not be obvious).

Good also to know if the vessel is ashore or afloat (for planning a viewing / inspection). Also where the vessel is located.

Appreciate I am getting towards "wish list" territory

Survey is being added, not to the extras, but to the form itself. Whether the boat is on the hard or splashed probably will too, gotta think about where I am going to put it though. LOL

Looks good. How about changing some of the Y/N ones to a number, with zero being an option. Like:
  • engines (0,1,2,3,4) (Hey, could be a go-fast boat with 4...)
  • head
  • shower

I noticed you can select multiple options for external power. That's good.
