Take a look in some of the owners forums - there are threads out there like this.

I love the step by step picture threads.

Please tell me what you think this section should be called and what exaclty is the description to see where we might place it.

I am still surprised that people feel they can not post because their boat is not expensive enough. I have never seen a reason why anyone should feel this way based on the way others treat them. Am I missing something?

I've wondered this for a while now. Other forums have a section called DIY or Library. In these areas members post how-to's on many topics including pictures depicting the step-by-step process. One that helped me last year was a post by Wally on how do change an impeller including pictures. I saved hundreds by following his detailed instructions. Pulling drives, servicing drives, impellers, bleeding hydraulic steering rams, etc., are all examples of good how-to topics. In some professional forums I belong to there are comprehensive reviews of products by members, links to engineering articles and other related reviews along with the how-to's. I think it is a fantastic idea that would surely take this forum to another level. Heck...if enough got posted, I might not have to sell the boat LOL!!!
