This is a project for developing formats and specific policies for articles relating to cruising on small craft, and anything else that may be necessary for developing a cruising guide on Wikivoyage.
- Cruising boaters would benefit by a way to crowdsource their own experiences and tips. Until now, the only way they had to do it was to write articles for each other. There are advantages to a wiki article as compared to a dead tree article.
- Wikivoyage is a suitable platform for this project. It has appropriate resources and the concept is within our goals
- It is preferable to develop some guidelines for structure and formatting before creating large numbers of articles, as this will save time and reduce misunderstanding and conflict later.
- It is desirable to fit the cruising articles into the existing article structural framework where appropriate, Extensions are probably neccessary.
- Create guidelines for structure of cruising articles
- Develop a recommended format/article templates for cruising articles
- Develop a naming convention for cruising articles
