Would a Whitewater Dories subforum be a possibility?

We have subforums for River Access and Safety alerts, Kayaking, Kayaking/Gear, Kayaking/Trip Planner, Rafting, Rafting/Gear, Rafting/Trip Planner, General boating topics, SUP's, Betty Buzz, and L&F.

I don't suspect it would have enough traffic to merit separate Gear and Trip sub-subforums, but would be cool to have a subforum with Dory builds, questions, repairs, rowing/packing techniques, etc.

Mods, is it too small to consider or worth thinking about?

Don't care either way, but can't wait to see the drama if Dories do and Duckies don't...good ole offseason

That was only 5 years ago!
Frankly, there are probably more IK runners than dory dorks. Whatever the owners/mods decide..

...and if anyone else knows of a good dory forum, point me to it. There's a good FB group, but no real forum. Dory posts are spread out here, in blogs, in the WoodenBoat forum...but nowhere specific.

I'd read it. Planning to design an aluminum dory this winter in solidworks and always looking for ideas.

That's mostly driftboats, but it does have good (decked) dory discussion as well.

Good idea, or one could just include Dory on the title.
Have a 16' whitewater Dory and would enjoy those discussions.

Seeing as how site administrators choose NOT to add a forum for Duckies a few years back I highly doubt you will see one specifically for Dories anytime soon...

I'm curious as to how many Dory folks are on here.

I have two Lavro 16'rs myself, (one may be for sale soon). The Facebook group is where I tend to ask most Dory centric questions.

I agree that just putting Dory in the topic is probably good enough for the Buzz. Not very often that a Dory specific topic comes up but they always get my attention.
