Question Suggestion: Engine Forums

Just a thought as I was about to post something related to my engine. SN already has forums for popular boat builders, how about the same thing for popular engines such as Westerbeake, Yanmar, Volvo, VW, etc. Considering how useless the search is for VBull, it should make searching for info about your particular engine easier?

I'll wait a day before I post my Westerbeake ?

Thanks

Cheers,
Shawn

Hi
I too would like to see a forum to discuss engines as mine is giving me trouble and it would be interesting to hear others experience and see what I could learn and adapt.

There is the Diesel Engine sub forum under Gear and Maintenance.. along with another A4 sub forum.

http://www.sailnet.com/forums/diesel-engine-forum/

Perhaps there could be sub sub forums under the Diesel Engine one for brand specific discussion. Not sure how quickly admin can/will get onto something like this. There may be a concern of "clutter" from setting up too many "forums" (some say we're there already!)

Alternatively, or in the meantime, you might create and maintain a brand-specific thread in the Engine sub forum.
