Running this kind of website is pretty new to me so it's a cool project to start with.

I've always used car forums for buying and selling stuff but never any boat stuff.

Hopefully enough people can find it to make it worthwhile.

That's you now activated cookee

I don't know if your email stuck it in your junk folder or something but you can use the forum now.

There is a search function, which will search the whole site.

Quite often I like to have a trawl for stuff with nothing specific in mind, so using the search function doesn't really help in this situation. would it not be possible to have a general for sale section that lists anything anywhere and a regional section for those who only want to look for stuff that is local?

I'd suggest doing it the other way, where everything is shown initially with the option of refine search to each area, build, type etc. I think that might be easier than having each area then refining it to all boats.

Looking good though. You'll need the big hitters onboard to make it go nationwide but as a starting point having it as leisure only will get you a good footing in the marketplace o progress from

People will travel Nationally for race boats - is it worth having a separate section for them?

Site Re opened after full revamp

I have totally revamped the site

It features searches by region, country and categories so you can find exactly what your looking for

I hope you guys can take a look and its of some help to you in the future

it will remain a free site and is free of the usual internet bumf!
