Nautical Monkey will be publishing new Find a Share section of the site in the next week or so.

Some of the cool features we will be releasing are:

Multiple Profiles: The new system will give you the ability to create multiple sharing profiles.

Let's say you own or are sharing a sail boat on Lake Travis here in Austin, TX and want to find an additional partner. You can create a listing for that boat on the site and start attracting potential new members.

At the same time, let's say you have always wanted to have access to a good sized Cruiser to take your business clients out on the weekends. You will now be able to create another sharing profile which would allow other people who have such a boat (or who are looking into getting one) to find you on the site.

The new system will allow you to kind of stick your toe in with regard to a partnership on a particular kind of boat. You can list a boat you are interested in sharing (not one that you already own) to see if there are any other people out there who are also thinking of such a boat. This could start a conversation and who knows.

The new system also allows you to be as detailed or general as you like when creating your listing. For example, you listing could be for a "Sail Boat", a "Fishing Boat", or a "2013 Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 54 DS". The more details you provide the more likely you are to meet that perfect and like minded partner, but at the same time, a general listing will introduce you to a larger number of responsibilities.

Any suggestions you have as to features and functionality for the new sharing section will, of course, be welcome. Jot them down here so other's can comment or shoot me an email at jdavis@nauticalmonkey.com.
