My hope is that it works better the the classified section that is on here now. A place where you'll find an item listed in 2005 before one listed in 2008.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

Seems like a generally good idea.

I wonder about having the 40' split, seems a bit arbitrary and perhaps not at the ideal length.

Especially for the multihulls -- I'm not sure there will be enough of either size to justify splitting them into two length categories. I can only think of a small handful of multihull sailors that would qualify as active Sailnet members (as per the subforum rules), and how many of them will be selling their boat at any given time? That's a lot of forum real estate dedicated to a slow subject.

Also, the distinction between cruising and racing sailboats can be pretty nebulous.

Just some initial impressions....

Seeing as the ad at the top of the page is to BoatTrader.com you might be cutting into your advertising.
Despite being one of the few multihullers here, and on a smallish one to boot I'm inclined to agree with JRP, not much going to happen on the same multi side except for hobies and tornado's and the like, and since I 'race' weekly with my dinghy on my davits am I a slow racer or a fast cruiser?

A great idea as long as the ad will be deleted after one year or when the boat is sold as stated in the rules.

"There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were and ask why not..."

With this Bobby Kennedy quote in mind, I thought that maybe Sailnet could host the first-ever online farting contest. It would be a great way to take the edge off at the end of the day... but I'm sure somebody will shoot down my idea... they'll say it's too far ahead of its time... oh, well... guess I'll put my matches away and pull my pants back on... You guys are NO FUN.

Another point is that many boats might fit into multiple categories. A Corsair R28 might be considered by one person to be a trailerable boat, another might put it into the <40' multihull category, while a third might put it in the Racing (High Performance) boat category. It probably qualifies as all three pretty well, since it is only 28' LOA, trailerable and generally considered a racing machine.

It might make far more sense to just have two categories... Multihull and monohull, rather than trying to divide the boats so precisely.










P.S.
Hog... that wouldn't be a contest...either you or CD would easily win no matter who else was competing...so it'd really just be a contest between the two of you.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
