Re: Sailnet has new owners
One of the most unique and valuable things about this site in my opinion is the articles section. There is some truly great stuff in there written by some truly great sailors. Sure, much of it is old, but it's still great stuff.
You guys should figure out a way to not only promote this existing library of articles, but also solicit articles from the membership here. If sites like Sailfeed can monetize the creation of content by good writers, you guys should be able to do it as well.
With guys like Bob Perry, Mainesail, JonE, Cruisingdad, the sailing chefs, and many others, you have a very valuable opportunity staring you in the face to leverage social growth around great, relevant content. Expand that from the written form to podcasts and video (like DrakeParagon's series) - and it could really get fun.
