Klaus has provided us with another great looking German build which has recently launched.
The forum is in German, but the pictures are pretty obvious. Starting around page 11 things get pretty far along. You can try the Google translation into English if you like (obviously automated translations can be a bit rough).
Here’s another good forum to check out, especially if you are into the Trawler world.
TrawlerCrawler.net was launched to complement the interactive mailing lists associated with TrawlersAndTrawlering.com.
For those who love the email format of T&T List and its sister discussion groups, the lists will continue to inform and entertain for a long time to come. For those who are happier sharing information and experiences in a Web environment, TrawlerCrawler.net will become their homeport on the Net with forums such as All Trawlers, All Trawlering, All the Time; Cruising the Rideau Waterway, St. Lawrence River and Ottawa River; Smaller the Boat, Bigger the Adventure; plus Happy Hour.
Boston Whaler is a name among tough, usable boats of many styles. The Whaler Central site has very active forums and other resources if you are interested in learning more about the Whaler, or picking the brains of experienced owners and users.
Our friend Klaus Hafner sent me a link to a new forum site for metal boat builders… seems to be a new community forming, but Klaus says several of the old "warhorses" of the metal boatbuilding world are there already.
The Boat Builders Forum is where you’ll find metal boat designers, builders, and other metal boat owners willing and able to help you with your metal boat project!
Definitely something worth a look. Check our our forums page for other communities you might want to join.
Glen-L.com – the Boatbuilder Connection – Glen-L sells plans and supplies and now has a pretty active forum – worth checking for homebuilding issues even if not from Glen-L designs/plans
Since we cover a lot of electric and solar power issues, I want to especially point out the Electric Power section.
A site with articles, forums and various resources… I’ll let them describe themselves:
This website has a simple objective – to help develop the skill and confidence boatowners need to select appropriate gear, materials and techniques required to undertake many of the maintenance and repair jobs on board. You do not have to be a tradesperson, or a skilled handyperson and you may not want to do the work yourself. This site will help you make sensible decisions, whether you choose to do it yourself, or deal with industry professionals.
Whatever kind of boating you do, we hope you will be encouraged by the experiences of others including old-hands and industry experts. We attempt to bring into one convenient place information on products, materials, techniques and resourses. When sourced from other websites, appropriate credits and links are provided.
A nice forum geared toward the small craft…
A newly found forum where George Beuhler has started a discussion group for his Diesel Duck line. Sure to be interesting.
Started in fall of 2005, it is devoted just to chat about the DUCKS. Anybody can join and participate!
Registration is required.
WoodenBoat Magazine’s online forum… highly trafficed and highly recommended.
