Welcome to the new Mini Boat Madness forum. We've completed the conversion and migration to our new forum platform, Simple Machines Forum. Our primary goal was to increase site speed and member accessibility. The original software just wasn't living up to our needs, so we switched. Early testing has shown a dramatic increase in site speed and we hope it stays that way.
MBM is a work in progress and will always be a living, evolving forum. As you check out the new format, please don't hesitate to let us know about any problems you might find. The database conversion was not without issue, so let us know about any bugs!
All currently registered members will be receiving an email containing a new password. Unfortunately, password migration was not possible and new ones are the solution. Hopefully, you won't find this too much of an inconvenience.
Signatures may also need to be updated. It appears that the formatting from the old forum is not compatible with SMF.
Thanks to our growing membership for the continued support. We hope this new software will allow us to continue growing for years to come.

Our new 520 sterndrive has been a resounding success since it was introduced one year ago at the LOTO (Lake of the Ozarks) Shootout. It’s become even more popular since the release of a Joystick Piloting for Sterndrives – Axius option for selected models fitted with the Bravo Three XR sterndrive. Formula boats have been early […]
