That seemed to sort of work.  Can anyone else see this?  This was the day I picked up my latest project, had to shovel out about 2 feet of snow before it got hitched on...  Welcome to Minne"snow"ta ya'll!

I'm around and on boats almost every day, and it makes me sick to see a boat that has been neglected. If you don't want it any more, at least cover it and protect her insides. Please post pictures of your progress.  Denny.

Testing out photo sharing.....

One you get her up and running, we'll need to get you a nice swim platform instead of that little thing with railings. :)

One step ahead of you, I have a full size teak platform that I picked up a couple weeks ago in the garage waiting..... :)  (of course now I just created more holes to fill after the replacement...)

Needs a little work to clean it up but that's why teak is so great, very forgiving for an old boat like this.

I'm trying another picture posting test.  I'm not crazy about how my posting with Flikr added all the extra crap to it, looks kind of spammy.

Check out the sweet gloss on my project Chap, can you see my reflection?? Ha!  My arm already hurts looking at this thinking about all the work that will go into bringing this back to life. :)

hmm, I don't think that worked.....

Maybe this one.....

This is from my desktop computer, I may have some security protections that keep this from working quite right.

Okay, sorry again for all these attempts but hopefully this will help others down the road.

I think I figured out this for my situation, using Amazon Photos.

Instead of copying web address of the picture from the web browser I was able to right click on the picture I wanted while in Amazon Photos, then select "Copy image address" then paste it into this box.

I think this is what Hatem was trying to tell me but I was too dim to follow along.... :)

Thanks for your patience ya'll"  Now just sit back and admire that beautiful gel coat shine..... :(

Yes!  That's exactly what I was trying to say. lol.  Really nothing to it because if you're able to right-click and copy, almost certainly it's a jpg formatted pic which you can just paste right into your quote box and the pic will automatically appear.  Now you can shower us with pics and start that project thread.  :)

lol. Nothing to it.  Andy is the BEST guide to anything regarding boat finishes from resin all the way to gelcoat and everything in between.  He talks a lot, but that's because he's very thorough.
