Scale Sail

New Sub-Forum Suggestion
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Forum Name: Scale Sail

Category: Boats / Scale Sailing Models

Description: A sub-forum under BOATS for scale sailing models of traditional types; sloops, schooners, square-riggers.

Justification: Existing threads on these subjects are split between scale boats and sailboats with a growing number of new scale boaters joining the ranks; posting build logs and sailing reports. Identified existing threads would be moved into this topic; including, but not limited to:

Design Details for R/C Square Rigger Operating Systems
Square Rigger kit-18 Gun Brig-of-war of 1797
Syren, Brig, SC&H R/C Square Rigger, 1/24 scale
Sailing SC&H 1/24 scale square rigged ships
Sloop-of-War Constellation build log
The Santisima Trinidad (scratch) (1:50)

etc...

Proposed Moderators: DanL; JerryTodd

Jerry,
This is a great idea. Congrats on the leadership to get it going.
I'm honored that you included me in the request as a moderator. Would be happy to do that.

RCGroups Monitors,
Given the great number of combined posts and hits on the threads Jerry cites, and on other scale sail model threads, I think Jerry presents a very reasonable request.
Thanks for your consideration.

If this passes; we'll have to scour the forum for candidate threads and hopefully the mods of Sailboats and Scale Boats won't object to their being moved.

There's the Sloop Providence thread and the Colonial Fishing Schooner thread, that Belgian 3-decker, and the Royal George threads as well.

Let's get them somewhere to move to.

Brilliant ! Now when some new thread pops up, we can see what's happening without everybody individually trawling through all possible categories looking for new stuff.

Thanks & Kind Regards,

Peter D.

I think it would be within the rules and spirit of the approval process to PM or e-mail others that we know who would respond positively.
I'm going to my PM file and will contact others that would use the new forum.

This would be a huge help in my opinion. I am sure it would save each of us time when attempting to review an item.
