I personally have stopped using boat buzz as frequently as I was for a few reasons.
1. The general decline of folks posting on the forum, it used to be exciting when I could sign on every day and read and see a bunch of relevant stuff to my restoration. I stopped visiting so frequently because people stopped posting so frequently.
2. The tremendous amount of experts and conflicting opinions. I know everyone has great experience and opinions are like you know whats, but I have had a problem with posting a question and it spinning off into a topic completely unrelated to my question.
3. The willingness to provide unsolicited information. Not everyone who is on this forum is looking to go out and win over judges. I personally am restoring a boat that has been in my family for 40 years, I want to enjoy it over the next 60+ years and therefore I am making changes that are not going to be judged well, but that is my prerogative. I've posted before, pictures of a wood supplier I went to, progress on my restoration, only to be met with the "Fact Police" making sure I know that I am using different wood than what came from the factory. News to everyone- all the wood we use today is different than what came from the factory, newer trees, poorer quality, etc.
I think this forum is a great tool for all, I cannot express how grateful I have been for many of the people who have provided great guidance to me. I understand everyone comes out here to browse the pages with their free time and do appreciate that. Hopefully some of what I have said will lean some insight into the decline in traffic.
