Tips:
New Post
  • Determine which of the boat systems message boards (engine, electrical, etc) covers your topic; or whether you want only the audience of a specific model (p31, p323, etc)
  • Select the appropriate message board and select New Topic
  • As a rule of thumb put the model number in the title of the post if it is pertinent
Replying to a Post
  • When doing a REPLY please keep "on Topic" for easy future reference
  • IE: don't hijack a thread of discussion with a new topic, but instead start a new thread/topic
The administrator will periodically optimize the forum by moving topics to appropriate categories and removing obsolete entries
