I have asked a few times, but I think that it's gotten lost in the midst of so many good suggestions in the box.
Could you please add a "Contest" link to the list of builders along with the others?
Being a Dutch boat, there are very little gathering places for information on the boats (or at least in English). There is an owners site with a forum in dutch, but nothing in English. There is much lost in translation with google translate. It would make a big difference in searching, research, and I would be very grateful.
Thanks for doing such a great job with this site!
Thanks for the suggestion. Sorry if I missed it previously.
From time to time we receive requests for adding certain builders to the list. Some of them were once very popular brands. Some others are obscure, defunct, limited production, or otherwise not well-known. Some of those very same ones have dedicated websites that serve the owners better than we ever could here.
However, we are not necessarily against adding more builders to our list if there is a real interest in doing so. What we usually do is ask that the requester start a thread, referencing the brand of boat by name, and asking folks to post to that thread if they would be interested in a dedicated sub-forum. In this way, we can gauge how deep the interest runs.
Failing that, we do have an "Orphan Brands
" sub-forum, and there's nothing to prevent anyone from starting a thread there dedicated to their brand. If it becomes a very active thread over a long period, that would also be an indication of the need for a dedicated sub-forum.
