I can see the point about there not being much need due to boatlaunch but I can also see the advantage of more in depth knowledge.

Something I'm trying to find and struggling is info on lakes that allow power boats and prices etc. So I can take my older kids out in the summer. Contacted allot on boatlaunch only to be told no power when the info said they do and a few have been jetski only!

If there is no need for such a section on this site why do so many people ask for such advice???

That's what I mean by having more information would be great. If it was decided for this to go ahead on RIBnet then I would be one who would use it allot. And it makes sense as I'd say 90% of members are trailer boaters.

I doubt that has anything to do with it. But have you bothered to update the boatlaunch pages on the local slipways to you? If you haven't - and others haven't - why would the information on here be any more reliable, detailed, up-to-date etc.

Doing it gets my vote......the slipway information I had off this forum was far better than that available on boatlaunch

Quite simply because the membership here are very active, and have a strong willingness to help others who are like minded, and therefor the information is far more likely to be kept up dated for the benefit of the forums users, not least because of the format here 'A forum', which is simple to post up significant info including pics.

Extremely easy to edit the boatlaunch info - e.g. you just click "edit this place" when you are viewing the slipway, don't think you even need to be logged in and you can upload pictures too. You should also be benefiting from a much wider "user base" as its not 'restricted' to just RIBs - so should be more useful!

You know any forum thread on a given slipway will become full of off topic discussion, random banter, and people will not use the search function so there will be multiple threads on the same topic etc... then no doubt there will be the usual "PM sent" and "PM replied" messages too - just to make sure that finding the useful information is difficult, Boatlaunch means you can search geographically and get the same information for each slipway (a standard set of headings etc).

Does it work on here when someone posts - whats the slip at blah blah like ? - surely it does ? I've seen a few & replied to some. Some slips are RIB freindly some are not - eg two on boat launch near me - one is fine & one is crap , but it doesn't distinguish between the two !
