I'm wanting to try a little something different with this new website. I'm hoping that with all of you helping, we can make this something special. I'm counting on you all to help make this work, share your opinions, and help make this a great site.
First I want to say to Kelly, Thank you. For getting me and many others interested in this Hobie in the first place. For showing me and others that there are others out there that are just about as nuts about boats as I am. Kelly, I Believe you are planning on going somewhere else with your website other than the whole Forum hosting thing, and I respect your decision. I believe there is still a place out there for a well run Forum. I'm hoping that the rest of you agree.
There has been talk recently of trying the re-unite the fractured Fiber Glass Boating World. Maybe this can be the thing that does that. I'd like to provide a forum, (and Forums) to do just that. If it works, Great. If it doesn't, then so be it. I will dedicate that I will try my best.
I'm putting A new Historical Section in the Forums. Hopefully I can get some of you Classic Wood and Fiberglass Boat experts to contribute. we will be adding a new forum soon. At this point I am looking at the vBulletin® Version 3.8.2, which is pretty much the best out there. I will be able to copy any info from the existing "Temporary forums" onto that forum, Or if you save a copy, you can do it your self. Transferring pictures will be more time consuming.
I'm going to be workin on the artwork for the main page in the coming weeks, but since the basic platform is up, I figured I would share it now.
If any of you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to email me, or post on the Forums:
