Well, years later we are up to just shy of 67,000 posts, a strong indicator of active participation and plenty of members who like to discuss our wonderful little boats. And boy am I glad this isn't "one bucket" of posts!
There is very little activity these days on the yahoo page. Well, none I can hear over the soft din of crickets.
I occasionally participate on the trailer sailor forum which essentially is "one big bucket". I say occasionally because I don't really like it. It is kind of like FB in that if you miss a few days "it" is gone. Forums of that nature are like a dockside bar. lot of discussion goes on and then it is lost and forgotten giving way to the current hot topic. This forum, as it is configured, seems to be the best for knowledge retention. There are not many answers that are not quickly attained with the search feature.
