    Default Confused

    Maybe it is just me - but I find it increasingly difficult to identify the differences between the Scuttlebutt section of the forum and the PBO section (and sometime both sections and the Liveaboard section).

    Primarily lots of servicing queries in Scuttlebutt and 'foreign' queries, foreign to the UK, anywhere.

    Or does it not matter?

    Does anyone really care? Just so long as its boating related.

    Evidence, but maybe my interpretation of evidence is wrong, suggests they do not care.

    Why have 2 separate Forum if it does not matter?

    Why not merge the 2.

    I like the idea that the PBO forum focusses on practical matters (including MoBos) and Scuttlebutt focus on, sail, cruising matters, excluding the practical side. But that's just me

    I often get confused, when someone posts a question/statement/ discussion point. and then a couple of people take it off topic, and spend most of the thread arguing amongst themselves, it gets very boring.

    Should this be in Forum News and Feedback?

    I can't say that it really bothers me which of the two forums threads end up in, but it might be refreshing to have a less confrontational style of posting on some occasions.

    Agree with Neeves. Pretty pointless having two fairly identical forums linked to magazines that will no doubt soon be disappearing.

    Only posted as such as I had thought there was a difference between the 2 Forum - but the threads indicate that difference does not exist in the minds of many - and one does not want to be confrontational - over something of little importance. Now something that may impinge on safety - I have slightly different views.

    But I never read Forum News and Feedback - and I suspect I'm not alone

    Why fix it if it ain't broke? There remains a useful distinction but if it isn't always adhered to then little harm is done in my view.
    Far away is near at hand in images of elsewhere
