In general.

Boating discussions should not be relegated to a minor "fishing boats" subsection of the outdoor forum.

There are a wide variety of boaters on arfcom, from kayakers all the way to megayacht operators. We can discuss things there that run the gamut from paddle selection to fishing rod storage all the way to sail trim and troubleshooting engine problems.

We have two separate forums for "grooming and haberdashery" and "shaving" under the general tab. Is it not possible to create a general discussion for boaters?

We need a boating forum. There are many boat owners. Only thing we have is a "fishing Boat" forum that is buried.

I'm all for it!

I like the idea being a new boat owner.

Always forget about the "fishing boats section"

This.
I would guess that we have more boat owners than scuba divers on this site and they have a forum.

Bump

I'd definitely like to see a boating forum.

If we can't get a stand alone boating forum in general, how about adding it to cars and bikes?

Cars, bikes and boats?

Stand alone would be better.

The fishing boat forum doesn't get much attention and boat questions in GD always devolve into a bunch of GDness.

If there was a rule that anytime someone said BOAT break out another thousand or the 2 best days, they could be banned, I would be ok with just having the questions in GD.

I thought Bikini pictures ver verboten here, a boating specific forum would likely have that kind of thing even if inadvertently.
We can't have that!

BAN THE BIKINI!









At least that is my theory on why there is not a specific boating forum, fishing boats are ok, how often do you see bikinis on a fishing boat?

Another vote for a boating forum. There is a forum for everything else, why not boats?

I also vote for a boating forum.
