Aside from the obvious foam koozies, honestly I think the only ting the site could benefit from would be more traffic, more members and more current members using the site opposed to Instagram and Facebook for updates and projects.

You have provided a solid platform and a very useful site. Anyone one and everyone I deal with when it comes to selling parts or just casual conversation with people at the lake I bring up the forum and encourage them to sign up because I believe this site is great and there are a lot of good members here.


So if anything the only thing I could suggest is finding a way to spread the name but then again it's out there on most social media and now were back to the question of what can be done to bring more people in.

Theres a reason i call Socaljetboats home. Theres no BS drama. Brad your doing a great job! keep up the good work.
i think some more showcases and race coverage would be great. You know you are always welcome in the 177 pits. 
Shop reviews could be really neat. 
I think a video review of parts from different members once a month would be awesome!
One thought i had is maybe monthly photo contest, but make it creative.

i think user interview or a showcase would be a great way to boost traffic.  for example you do sooo many videos with a 1 second blurry swipe of hallet daves boat... but then theres hardly any pictures of it on the site.  theres some boat making a balls out pass down the river that sounds amazing, but for us that arent in the circle we have no clue whos it is, what he's running, etc. 

also ive personally been avoiding threads with busted image links/previews. its gotta be killing your page views and analytics.  i know you cant force them to update their app on their phone/tablet but you can restrict them from uploading a new picture... ie: on upload, is your version 2.x?, no, well image upload failed, redirect them to the "UPDATE YOUR APP!" page.  done deal.

I say leave it it's more like a extended fam then a bunch jack holes creating drama and talking trash. Each gathering is getting bigger and bigger as we grow but with good intentions and people.

I love the calendar idea. The problem with a calendar is that they cost money to produce, just like the DVD and stickers and hats koozies all that stuff. Im not sure how merch sales are going but I didn't see a lot of people buying the DVD.

The only thing that I would change about the site is the colors  O0 I love the old yellow and brown colors from when I first started on here back in 2009. I would also like to see more traffic. This site is so good and at times it gets a little slow during the winter but overall we are all on here a lot and none of us like the "other guys". Im just not sure how to do it. But with all that said I do like the calander and ill pre pay a year in advance. We can take votes on pictures submitted by members and those 12 will go in the calendar. If you want to secure a month it will cost you more :-).

Simply put, like everyone else has said before. The site is great, every time I'm on there is someone new. Everyone I've talked to has been overly helpful, no one is trying to screw with anyone. As far as growing, the bigger the site gets the harder it is to control and those problem people come in.

I would like to see more of everyone's boats, I know myself I am guilty if not posting pictures. And like said above, I'm not on the other social media sites. Plus I've have not made it out to a meet yet, so I don't know most of you personally. Which some times is a little intimidating because it is so much like a family. (This is mostly my own doing though.)

I love this site. It's the first thing I check when I get up and the last thing I read before I go to sleep. Not to mention the the times during the day. I like a boat of the month deal with voting not sure how it would work. Winners could be in the calendar. You do a great job Brad !!!!

I want to see more members posting more PICTURES!
If you guys are remotely thinking more merchandise.... start buying more merchandise!
I want to see what you guys are doing, or in my case not doing!
Stop posting YOUR home movies.
They're cool but they're YOUR HOME MOVIES!
Other than that, everyone can blow me.

 I still cant upload pics to the homepage off #socaljetboats nothing ever shows up on here only instagram? Knowing me its probably my phones problem and not the sites.  Should we be uploading random boat/motor/part pictures in a certain spot?
