Perhaps we could address the forum rule against selling stuff and self promotion again, specifically with regards to designers and naval architects. There seems to be few enough of them (designers) working specifically in wood these days and offering a little encouragement and support would be a good thing, yet the forum rules, even though generally unenforced, discourage such. I know personally a few naval architects that would like to suggest designs to some threads in the Designs section of the forum, yet they have refrained from doing so, so as to not break the rules. While at the same time, dozens of other forum members, my self included, cut & paste copyrighted materials* to such threads.
* copyrighted materials: I believe this falls under fair use laws though and is not a violation of those copyrights. . .
