Dinghy Database

Post by realnutter » Tue Mar 15, 2016 11:51 pm

Is it being actively maintained?

A Nimbus was advertised on Facebook earlier, so I came to the CVRDA to look it up... zilch..(it is listed but with no data) but quite a lot of info available via google...

It's a shame to see our resource missing easily available data....

If you get info to Pat, she can put it up.

Nimbus was a Mark Giles design, Topper sized but with a bow. Looked nice, but the rig wasn't really developed beyond what the Topper had and the bow lacked volume, so it never really stood a chance.

sounds like there's a willing volunteer. It's easy to criticise something when it's out of date, but "someone" has to do it, and the CVRDA is made up entirely of volunteers.

There is a route to providing updates, on the database page - http://www.cvrda.org/wp-cvrda/dinghy-database-contact/

I'd be happy to assist in its upkeep... either directly or indirectly....
