No Tayana's

Why isn't there no Tayana thread on the "Boat Builders Row"? I think it's about time fine boats like that get there deserved space on Sailnet. I mean cruisingdads mom & dad got one, teshannon's got one and there must be a few more out there who also own a Tayana.
So anybody gonna second my request?

I was wondering what the criteria for the selection of entries were.

Maybe Cam or CD can advise.

TB, I don't think he'll knock 50% off his price just to have Tayana's included in the builders row. But could be interesting.

Seriously, Tayana sprung to mind cause it's a boat very often mentioned in these forums. Others like Grampian or Tanzer which do have a thread, I personally have never even heard of, and some of the posts related to some of these boats also seem quite old.
Just though we could start the new year with a more modern or fresh look to sailnet, some people are starting to think this is a travel forum.

I think you should leave the Portagiu out of this, he'll want a thread just for his bateaux alone!

Grampians and Tanzers were produced in considerable numbers in central Canada, and as a result there are quite a few on the Great Lakes in particular, however few were likely imported or found their way across the pond.

I'm sure there are European and UK builders that are little known in North America too.. This board seems to have a predominantly US membership - certain Portuguese, Belgians, Canucks and Ozzies notwithstanding (that would be a interesting stat - member distribution around the world!)

btw- certainly agree that Tayana rates it's own category in builders' row.

Despite being an owner, the individual boat mfr. sub forums need a critical mass of owners to make it worthwhile. Before we request a forum of our own, it is necessary that we have a reasonable amount of interest in Tayana only discussions. The MOST active builders forum (Pearson) has a grand toatl of 166 posts in 18 months. SEVEN of the active forums have ZERO posts in the last month. Not exactly a hotbed of discussion. Nevertheless...

Everyone that is interested in continuing Tayana discussions should post here as evidence of that "critical mass" of interest.

Cam,
Is "Boat Builders Row" the same as the "Boat Reviews" link?
