the Best of Gear & Maintenance?
I had an idea this AM: there's a helluva lot of good content here...but much of it gets buried a) in an old thread or b) is slightly off topic, thus gets over looked.
Sailing Dog, for example, wrote a great Lazy Jacks tutorial on my thread related to my blown out Main.
What if we created / had someone create the BEST OF GEAR & MAINTANANCE section, and then a few of us who are in the know (that's you guys) or helpful (professional writer, thus I could help edit) post Best of Material there?
Perhaps we post clippings somewhere...have people vote on top submission...it gets prominent spot in this BOGAM section.
For example, I know in my limited time here, the Marine Stereo question has been answered definitively, by Cam (with some meager contributions from yours truly). Varnishing tips, also.
Posting them somewhere permanently, in an obvious spot, might cut down on the redundant queries. Not that I mind helping newbies (and I ask as many questions as anyone).
Also, the fact is, the search tool doesn't always pick up the best material.
Just a thought. tom
