Adding your vessel type and picture to profile?

I was wondering if we, I mean you, could add to the profiles?
I would enjoy looking at the profile and seeing what boat each member has and a picture. Even better, a picture of their boat and a big ass fish.

There already is this provision (indirectly) You can add a link to your photo(s) or homepage or whatever in your profile.
Virtually all of us with internet access have some space on our providers server for our own stuff. I have to admit it took quite a while for me to firgure this out. A friend finnally pointed out that I have something like 10 megabytes of space available.
Get a digital camera (or scan a photo), download it and copy and paste the url into your profile here under "homepage" and away you go.

Good answer, Tom!
I ran a feature some time ago in CETACEA that was a Rogue's Gallery of some of the better known characters from the FORUM.
You should check it out (Page 14).
My favorite mug shot was Jack, a.k.a. "WhalerNut", seen here:
Maybe it is time to do this again.

Are you pulling our leg? Is that REALLY whalernut?

Tom, I learn something new every day. Never realized my ISP had some web space for me.
BTW, for those of us who still use film, kodak offers a scanning service right along with development... I now get a set of prints and a floppy disk every time.
Yeah, I know that is a big image, I got that one from a set on cd/rom I had made by Kondak to send off to Jim for Cetacea.
And, WhalerDan, no, if you look at page 14 you will see the real picture of Whalernut, who actually bears a striking resemblance to my brother in law.

That's a great photo. Now that I have a 21" monitor I cannot imagine ever using anything less, and quite frankly I wish I had something bigger.
I was looking at your photo (and the one listed under your profile) and thinking that is such a great shot of a Montauk on a tropical white sand beach....but wait, it's a Washington registration number! Upon closer review I'm going to guess that's Whidbey island in the background. Perhaps taken from Camano Island?

That water is SO Clear. We have warm weater in Charleston but our water is muddy, like coffee with cream.

Tom - correct! That is the Greenbank part of Whidbey in the background. Baby Island is at the entrance to Holmes Harbor north of Langley, about two miles as the whaler runs from our beach house in Honeymoon Bay.
The kid in the blue lifejacket is my son George (8), the one in yellow is Maighread (5).
The white stuff on the beach is not sand but crushed shells. I was pretty pleased with the day, sometime around the fall equinox, perhaps September 22nd.
Whalerdan, I think the water here is heavily filtered by barnacles and muscles. There is even some commercial growing of muscles and oysters going on in Holmes Harbor. We are south of the more famous Penn Cove.
Here is an interesting resource of aerial photos (this link shows you Baby Island.
Perhaps I should put that in a different thread?
