    What Happened to the boat registry???

    I did a couple of searches and I could not find it. Why doesn't OSO put an official one on here? Or am I missing something?? It sure would be nice to be able to know who has what.

    Seems easier than that to me, I would think OSO could add a few fields to our profiles and allow them to be searched on. IE:

    I agree, it would be nice if we had another one. Sure would be a BIG job though. The membership has exploded since back when Mickey put the registry together.
    Plus......It would be a full time job just keeping track of TooOld's boats

    I'd be game to take it on. Hey, OSO, do we want to try it again?

    I'm thinking about this and the easiest way to get started would be to have everybody just e-mail me with the stats. However, it would be really nice to tie it into the members list and have people search and compare info. You know, make it interactive. This is proably something that the board god's would have to set up using their software. The nice thing is that people could enter and edit their own information so the list would be self maintaining. Here's some ideas of what could go into the list...

    Board Member name
    Given name
    Explanation of pen name
    Boat type
    Boat manufacturer
    Boat length
    Boat name
    Number of engines
    Type of engines
    Horse power of each
    Torque of each
    Fuel type
    Manufacturer of engine
    Engine name
    Boat weight
    Drive type
    Shortened drive?
    Drive ratio
    Best for top speed
    Best for hole shot
    Best for cruising
    Top speed
    Best thing about boat
    Worst thing about boat
    Past boats you have owned
    owner comments
    link for private message and e-mail

    I'm trying to take this list from just being a curiosity, to something that is usefull to both the fellow boaters, but also the advertisers on this site. If it can be set up correctly, you could search for a catamaran that is 30' long with twin 500hp engines and see how fast it is going. You could then send a PM to the owner to see how they like it. This could be kinda neat.

    Yes, I think it would be VERY usefull, I use's performance archives in order to get information on propping speeds ect.

    If set up properly our information would be more real world than the hotboat info because it would not be from the mag tests that are oftin boats that are set up to review well. Plus with multiple information on the same boat/setup it would really narrow down the questions.

    How many times do you see questions about the same topic? No bashing here but it is not always easy to search your way to the answer especially if you are a novice and dont know the terms. Having a registry would help quite a bit.

    Cord: wow you did some thinking on your list!

    its simple

    set up a PHP databse, they have phpmyadmin, create an interface to enter and update the information, get a host and it becomes a fully interactive system. check out this is a demo of updatable information structures. and no ones trying to sell you a boat!
