Ben Okopnik, a long-time active participant on theOrigamiBoats mailing list has created a neat online, searchable archive of the list. Might be worth checking out if you are looking for something, or just don’t want to deal with Yahoo’s interface.
Given that I’ve done some email parsing and display work in the past, this isn’t as easy as you might think. Impressive work, Ben!
Described as an electric vehicles club, they have a mailing list (a bit hard to find) and apparently lots of hands-on knowledge to share and learn from. They are geared around electric cars, but many of the same issues overlap with the marine world.
Brian Lowe made a recent comment pointing out that he has started a Mundoo mailing list on Yahoo. If you are interested in these interesting boats, or other similar designs, you might want to join up!
I strongly considered the Mundoo design for my build. The fact that they already have an electric model “working” really enticed me. There are some pro’s and con’s between those boats and the V28 I’m building, for my uses, but please take a look.
This is a new site dedicated to an area of the country I know pretty much nothing about. If you cruise that area, or are thinking about the Great Loop and might be by that way, check them out. Not much there yet, but a mailing list is available and might be worth a read.
Interesting site with a nice gallery and a mailing list if you’re so inclined.
Welcome to the Classic Trawler Network, our network is dedicated to sharing, fostering and preserving the history of the Malahide and Romsdal Trawlers built in an era when power cruising was in it’s infancy.
Another Yahoo Groups mailing list that covers a "small boat" specialty… not something I’ve followed, although I’ve recently ran across many links and ideas that refer to this group. Some interesting "outside the box" thinkers, I think. Always good to find the thinkers with the original ideas.
For those who want to build, use and cruise in tiny boats. Discussion of designs, accomodations, rigs, paddles, oars, etc. for voyages aboard small boats–long or short, real or imagined. We’re not so much about the type of boat you have but rather the spirit with which it’s used…
It’s a lively group, cheerfully answering any and all questions promptly and voluminously.
Mailing list centered around Brent Swain’s Origami designs, but also with some other designers/builders appearing from time to time. Brent and his "followers" tend toward very practical, "get it done" type designs. Some good ideas on this list.
