Why don't we put a sub-forum under the regional one for Red Sea et al. SE Asia, The Red Sea & Indian Ocean - Cruiser Log World Cruising & Sailing Forums
for this? I can see more than a single topic needed so a sub-forum should do--what should we call it?
Further, we can set up a cruisers wiki
page for the "permanent" references/resource info to ultimately reside and be linked to in a sticky in the forum.
CL does have the ability to form Social Groups around a particular topic--we've just not done so. See info in the Community about "Groups" http://www.cruiserlog.com/forums/groups/
where a lone member has set up an IO group already. I'm not sure of the extent of utility of the Social Groups, but we can work with it, too.
So? what do you think--further ideas, needs. CL remains non-commercial in nature but has no problem getting information about services and local service providers to the cruising community. We even have a very under-used marine vendor forum where boat movers and the like could be placing a post about their services.
