Redirect from Starboat[edit]

I'm not sure if this is the correct title for this entry. If this is intended to describe the Olympic class sailboat type, the correct name for the class is just "Star." Check: http://www.starclass.org/ MCBastos 01:56, 21 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Hi There,
when I searched the name Starboat , which is our family company, manufacturing speedboats, this page is opened.
I want to create an historical article for our company. How can we correct it ?

A quick search on Google implies that the use of the term Starboat in English is slightly more common as a variant name for the Star (sailboat), than it is as the proper name of the Turkish speedboat company.
That leaves a couple of options:
A) Make Starboat a disambig with links to this page and Starboat (boat builder), or
B) Make Starboat a page about the company, with a hatnote linking to this article.

Fair use rationale for Image:Star keelboat.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Star keelboat.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
