The Likes and My Posts sound good!
As you'll already be aware the harbour database choices are never going to satisfy everybody and there is only a finite amount of material/questions you can collect/ask.
I think it would help me, and perhaps others, if there was a (developing?) statement on the site indicating the aims and general approach to its development. in this way I could try and keep any suggestions within practical bounds and within the consensus(?) view of its stakeholders (whoever they are considered to be).
I am very conscious of not wanting to increase your workload with Irrelavances or pushing in a direction that does not have purpose or support.
Now in answer to your reply.
I'm assuming that the idea of the harbour is more than logging your own boats and that over time there might be some directory or search capability for others to see other members
with similar model
In such a case the database needs to be as comprehensive as possible but with summarized categories of the most vital parameters of a boat - any boat.
At present, and given the development of the site (I'm trying to catch up!) I can see why you have the form as is. Given the rapid development of the members
hip, and I can see it as being exponential, you might be at a crucial point in leaving well alone and adding categories randomly as they are suggested or going for a significant makeover to set it up for the future - just a thought?
Questions raised are:
Type of Model: Everything I think? Currently incomplete and a very difficult call to limit to say
