no one has directed me to a "How to" thread that we could move to jump start the new forum.

Anyone??

I might be wrong, but I think what the original poster was getting at was a general forum, not just tech questions, but "where to get the best deals", "how i got into the sport cheap (stories)", "how to get more speed out of an older V-bottom". I think if you called it do it yourself, that would limit the forum. Maybe call the forum "Offshore on a Budget", or maybe i'm retarded and you will disregard my post.

I do not worry about posting and I don't even own, nor never had my own boat. I simply enjoy these types of boats, and enjoy learning about them....and seeing great pics.

it does seem to be a good idea though reagarding the new forum

Reading a bunch of posts for a lot of reasons, it seems there is a gap between boaters. Some of the not so deep pocket guys are a bit timid posting or actively participating here. Due to $ or due to boat type and value. (and for those >>> DON'T BE.. THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR EVERYONE) THen there are the regs, and the unlimited spenders. Talking about Rolex deals.

There may be two forums. A newbie for getting them aclamated and a forum for a combination of DIY, Speed and HP for a budget. (which is what I need ) and great home made tinckering ideas. Remove a forum that's not used. enough. Just a thought.

Here's a DIY thread I made a couple months ago in the owners forum. I'm totally in support of a FAQ/DIY/Budget Forum.

Nice work on the dash pshannon. I have a 85 - 272 and I need two tachs. Once I find some I might do a bit upgrading to. Thx.
