Calling all car club or boat club admins! Does anybody out there have a good solution to a vehicle database? I've got a long term project that hasn't been able to get off the ground and looking for some ideas. I run a club for Mariah boat owners (www.mariahownersclub.com). The company went out of business in 2001, so we're the only resource for owners. We were able to obtain a large volume of "build sheets" from the original factory (see attached for example). My partner and I are trying to figure out how best to turn these into a real database that's easily accessible and can be contributed to by our members. I've considered a Wiki-style software, but i don't know if that has the structure that i'm looking for. Here's the vision in my head: Send off the build sheets to a data entry service to have the HIN# (boat version of a VIN), engine specs, color, options, etc entered into an excel spreadsheet for .CSV export into a database software. Import that data so that each boat (via HIN#) has a record. Users can search by their HIN# to locate that record in the database. The baseline record would have the base info that we pulled from the build sheet, plus a .PDF original of the actual build sheet (for their records if they want it). The boat record would then allow that owner to "claim" that boat as theirs and start populating the database with more info about that boat, pictures of it, where it's located, etc. As owner's change hands for that HIN#, the new owner can claim that boat and the database software records that history. Over time, we would have a database of all Mariah boats around the world and history on the ownership, dating all the way back to when the boat first rolled off the line. I'm the admin for our club and we run on Vbulletin and a dedicated server. I also use Amazon AWS for CDN and backups to S3. I'm flexible on the database format (MySQL on my dedi server or any other that AWS offers). Does not have to integrate into vbulletin. With the above vision, it would have to be easily usable by our members and simple to populate over time. Anyway, any ideas that anyone has would be great.
