Default How about a new "Boat Test" or "Dialing In" Section?

I always have questions about dialing in my boat to get every last bit of performance, but don't feel it's appropriate for the GD section or the Technical Q&A section.

How would anyone feel about a new "Boat Test" or "Dialing In" section for anyone who wants to know of other's trial and errors and what worked the best for them? This might be a great way to save big $$$ learning from others...

Exactly, I'd really like to see who's tried what, so I can forget about what doesn't work and "do" what does work.

I'm really surprised about the lack of interest??

I see a lot of BS, drama & mudslinging in the GD section to the point of the forum getting shut down temporarily, but nobody's interested in getting the best performance out of their boats?? What gives here?

The one problem I see is that "Identical Hull" is key to this and someone may have very different results (negative) to a guy that just gained 2mph doing the same thing. I think the owners forums are the best way to get that kind of info. Not saying this is a bad idea or it's not possible just giving another opinion

Remember the Stern Jack
