    You should segregate out Motorsailer and trawlers into a new forum as I feel that they are a different breed and I've found them in both power boats and sailboats!

    Also maybe multi-hulls could have their own forum as well...

    Just my two cents...

    Thanks

    Jed.

    We should have everything classified and make different forum.... it will be fantastic but it is still up to the moderator to dicide.

    I think this is a good idea - thanks for the suggestions. Both a motorsailer and a mutihull forum will be added this weekend unless there are any objections.

    Jeff (And Viceroy and Brian, of course):
    Would it be possible to move to the new motorsailers forum the threads:
    Viceroy's "Motor Sailers?" and Brian Eiland's "Monohull verses Multihull powersailers / motorsailers" threads?
    Cheers.

    Jeff, Great job...

    I like all the sub-forums under Propulsion, however you forgot the most important category; (in my opinion) Hybrids (electric, hydraulic and new technologies).

    Below is what I was thinking for sub forums…maybe a bit of work though. What you did is a big improvement. Thanks again. Listing from
