[The website where the URL is two miles long and doesn't work] is a poor place to host your photos. Not only does it result in a long URL, but it fails for those who are not members of that particular Yahoo Group. At least go to http://photos.yahoo.com and create an album there. Individual albums and photos there will also have long URLs, but you can direct others to your main area, for example, http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/maurice_riggins/my_photos and tell them which album a particular picture is in.

See the META-Forum for advice on better hosting sites for pictures.

No go on the link.

After creating the album and adding the photos, you need to set the permissions. Albums default to private (only you).

To change this click the radio button on the album, select EDIT and set to public.

Sorry, I forgot to mention the permissions thing. Once you get them set correctly, you can just tell people to go to:

Yiddil,

Skip down to the section on making your photo's accessible and set your photo album to public.

Yiddl-
You use Comcast for your ISP. They give you 10 MB to use for hosting web pages. Go to comcast.net and read about how use can create your own web page there. I made one for my boat... http://mywebpages.comcast.net/kevingregg/whaler/ ... it is not hard. Kevin

Actually, making a website is not that hard. That's why there are a billion of them, literally. Just make a damn website about your boat and put some pictures on it. This Photo-Album on Yo-Ho-Ho.com is more for SeaRay owners. It is not quite the same challenge as going to the moon and back before the end of the decade.

hey yiddil
Nice boat eh?...
anyhow, curious did ya mount the spare tire/holder yourself?
or did the dealer do it?

cuz, cuz, cuz,.....at the dealership I work at we never mount it portside, unless asked to, here in the mountains of oregon the emergency lanes are very narrow...so you would have to park very close to the road with a flat..and there is only one thing worse than having a flat on a hot august day...that would be mooning everyone passing by...hehehehe, actually the least amount of time on the portside, the less chance of getting hit. Think its not a real possibility..ask any state trooper what the chances are.

HeHe...Ya see, you can teach an old dog new tricks:))

The Spare was mounted by the dealer, why that side I know not..but I really like that pic as it shows the great lines of this Nantucket. But you make great sense on why it could have been on the other side of trailer:)

Im still looking for some better pics when shes in the water...Marlin tells me he has some he took during our run at the TeaParty...but hes still waiting to get the film developed:)

Thanks Moe:)Shes a pretty thing to eye in the water and seems to run real smooth, I was in her yesterday and Im still amazed at how solid she sits in the water, like she has this solid feel to her...maybe my imagineation, but she justs feels solid,,cant really explain...henry AKA THE YIDDIL

Nice boat,

I am rigging a nantucket right now,
the basics, lowrance, vhf, dual batteries, and a kicker motor [where you have your swim platform.]

oh yeah interesting wash down brush stowage rack ya have there..maybe ya should have a canvas shop make a smiley face cover for the brush head..in blue canvas...lol
later,
Terry

HeHe Its the standard Prop...that comes with this 115 package...seems to do the trick, I belive its an aluminum prop.. was out from 11am till 8pm yesterday in pure glass on the Potomac River!!!!Ankored at a sand Bar.."SHipping Point" and swam laps around her admiring her hull:)))Beat the heat here that way and reted by back...floating:)

Good Idea on the smiley canvas:) hehe But Im tapped out after buyin this thing and outfitting it:)))The new picks came out pretty good once I got the Huge Bayliner away from the slip area, and the glass water (I call it Molases) really gave a Great refection of the NAntucket in the water:))

Nice looking boat you have there Henry. She really looks great! The bottom paintwork matches nicely with the other colors (blue).
I'm glad you got your pictures available for all of us to admire. Thanks,

Erik

thanks Erik,

Was out on her again today...less than a foot waves on the Potomac:)We purred across the Potomac from maryland to Virginia....the cliffs....and back and settled at a favorite spot called shipping point, put a hook in and went swimming and relaxed till nitefall.....I was lucky to get the photos I got with her reflection in purfuctly still water at my slip:)))SHe quite a boat that NAntucket, thanks for the nice comments:) I hope to have a bow dodger added soon..and a mooring cover down the road:)) Henry AKA THE YIDDIL
