Off Topic: Micro Boat Forum, Official Poll has begun

Every type of RC has its own micro sub-forum, except the boating type.
The big boat guys are trying to keep us down. (For what reason, I do not know)
Please help out in the voting for the new forum.
New Forum Suggestion - Micro and Sub-Micro Boats

Boat forums like the other forums grow. Water crafts can be drawn down to many levels when you are talking electrics just like the planes its going to happen ultimately there will be interested in all sizes. IT IS without question limited sources for true quality micro electric boats and parts on the market. It is true there are more and more boaters willing to excel in there passions of micro models such as the art of wood crafting the list will go on. For now you can gaze at all the toy types flooding the market.

The gear we see in the (electric boat forum) bears no credence with the parts we need for our efforts let alone the general interests of that forum. This lack of sources and no advertisement in the main forum slows our quest and buries our data our efforts and resources amongst the hoard of new threads started up by others that use batteries weighing more then our entire craft.

This demands help for growth into a new direction. Our generation of crafters with our efforts here in this thread need to be documented while the gettin's good to help pave the way for others to there own personal achievements and teachings for our community here on RC Groups.

I personally want a place where I can gather and share data that deals with all forms of light water craft micro in size.

One Day it could expand to:

Scale Micro Boats
Gas Micro Boats
Nitro Micro Boats
Electric Micro Boats
Hybrid Micro Boats


The electric guys over at the plane forum call it (Under Aircraft -Electric -Airplanes sub forum name is (indoor and micro models)
We need (Boats -micro models) at least.

It would be cool to post in the car forum, but it would be completely irrelevant.

We need 75% yes votes, but it is a while before the poll time runs out. That gives much time for nonmicro enthusiasts to say no. Right now we are winning by 1.53%.

I have to admit this has caught my interest, I'm on an iPhone right now so I can't vote as at some point today rcgroups have a "iPhone/mobile internet format" that is "forced" I can't select the normal website, as soon as I am on a pc I will vote in favour!

I'll have micro anything for rc!
