Large Archive of Boating and Repair and Maintenence Now Available

The Boat Owners Association of the United States (BoatUS) has announced a revamp of its BoatTech resource, a free archive of boating maintenence and repair information. It’s available at http://www.boatus.com/BoatTech/.

BoatTECH

The information is searchable but several categories are listed on the front page, from “Anchoring and Docking” to “Hull Maintenance and Repair” to “Winterizing.” I did a search for propeller and got over 2000 results, but they were from all over the BoatUS site. I did a revised search, this time for propeller BoatTech, and this time got better results more oriented to repairs and maintenence.

I don’t know from boating so I can’t tell you what the Sacrificial Anodes article was about completely, but I can say all the articles I looked at were extensive and included many photographs as well as the occasional oddly-philosophical sentence. (“We all know rust, but to understand rust, we have to go back to the very beginning.”) One thing I did not see were many videos embedded in the articles. Maybe I used the wrong search term.

There is a simple mechanism for sharing articles but no way to leave comments that I found, or embed the article itself. Tons of information.
