I think the intention was to provide a place to ask for help / post help for boats that there are not a gazillion of out there.
If you need information on a Catalina or Hunter there are thousands out there that have one. Maybe "Orphan" isn't the right term but "boats of less than 500 hull numbers" gets a little long. Orphan works for me.
Then again maybe I am wrong.
