New Message Board Title

Is there anywhere on the message boards where people talk about specific locations of sailing (i.e. Panhandle of Florida, Carribean etc.)?

Would anyone else like to see a message board of such?

Not necessarily to get sail groups together but to discuss topics of interest in our respective areas. Our area changed so much with the recent storms I''d like to ask someone where the best bay area is to sail without running aground. A lot of our bay goes <3 ft with winter tides. Other topics may include best sail-up lunch piers, best coves to anchor out, best island to have a beer etc.

One of the problems of site-specific boards is that they generate so little traffic. Check out the postings on AOL under Sailing-- they have headings for all sorts of different areas. They''re all dead, with the last posting three months ago, and the one previous to that, five months old. Sailing World/Cruising World has a "Local Knowledge" heading for area-specific types of discussions, but even with the entire world as an option, it isn''t the busiest of their boards. In order to get the types of responses that make a board work, you need a critical mass of activity. Breaking topics into too many small pieces keeps you from getting that critical mass,and undermines he credibility of the entire site. Just my $0.02.

I just relocated to the mid-atlantic area and joined that list, posted a question to the list and suddenly everyone is talking. They said there''s been no activity in months. All it took was one question.
