It's none of my business of course, but I've come to the conclusion that most web fora are too categorised. By which I mean that, in dividing the Forum into diferent groups (sailors vs. power boaters - in the case of Cruiser log - and everyone vs racing sailors in many other fora) you are denying many people cross cultural information which may be useful.
For example, a power boater who has a problem with charging diodes is just as interesting to cruising sailors who may never log on to the powerboat forum - and vice versa.
The Sailor who has paint problems, galvanic action problems, crew problems,or problems with a randy wife, is just as interesting to the power cruiser.
Clearly, there is an issue of too much information clogging any particular forum, but I suggest that in the case of Cruiser Log, this is not the case.
