BoatWiki.com is the internet's first and only free knowledge base designed exclusively for boating enthusiasts and maritime professionals. It is structured as an information repository that draws heavily upon active participation of those who stand to benefit from such data. The site is administered by a team of highly qualified professionals with a degree of expertise and experience that is second to none in the marine industry.
The subject matter of BoatWiki.com relates to the technical aspects of buying, owning, operating, and selling a boat. It includes information, resources, experiences, and advice covering each stage of the boating venture. Whether a first-time buyer or seasoned boater, this website covers all you should know before, during, and after getting out on the water.
As an encyclopedia, BoatWiki.com is built around an infinite number pages which contain a wealth of information for a particular boating subject. In order to simplify an online orientation we have divided the content into logical sections. These are further broken down into categories which contain related topics, each with its own dedicated page. The pages will have a similar look and feel with a descriptive title followed by sub-headings. Cross links are also provided for referencing other relevant contents. The header for every page will furthermore contain a number of links related to administrative functions.
BoatWiki depends on a community effort to help build and maintain this vital source of shared information. It is an open platform that is available to anyone with no fees involved whatsoever. In order to maintain its viability, however, each reader is asked to contribute information, opinions, and feedback regarding the respective topics with which they are familiar.
The website itself is managed by an administrative staff that handles the day to day operations. This includes a team of moderators who are charged with sorting through all incoming data for accuracy and relevance.
As with any project of this magnitude, it requires an enormous investment of time, resources, and funding. Although supported in part by advertising placements, these are implemented in an a manner that does not detract from the textual content and meaning of each page. We also encourage donations from readers who value BoatWiki.com as a go-to source of essential boating information.
