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 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 as a go-to source of essential boating information.
