I thought i would start up a thread of photos of members boats.
- Each member who wants to cen post one or two 'mug-shots' of there boat, for general interest, and to build up a bit of a reference.
- Please avoid hugly excessive file sizes where possable and be aware that post without images maybe removed from the thread for neatness.

Of cause i invite people to make comments/enquirys about peoples bots posted on here, but if they could be via pm or in a separate threads (or breifly, within your only post of your boat) that would be excellent!

Image sizes of around 640*480 pixels and around 150kb are ideal, and can be uploaded easly using ImageShack.

I think most people have seen a few photos of emilyanne in there time, but to kick it off.

Also see the sister thread "Photos of other members boats, spotting other cwf boats."

I thought Dan's idea was to have a thread where you could put a couple of pics of your boat on, which could be seen in the same topic.

Brilliant innit...Dan comes up with a great idea, a thread where you can look at a picture of peoples boats so you can put 'names to faces' so to speak ......... and what happens.

Maybe you'd better put a line in the top Dan.......any posts WITHOUT a picture of the owners boat will be deleted.

Only prob with this is you have to sign up for an account somewhere else and post yr pics there first.


I made this little uploader, I'll host them for free for anyone who'd like. They key is 'mrotter' but I'm not even checking it (lazy programmer). Upload a file then copy the link it gives you.

Of course after I did that I realised you could just upload your images to the gallery then copy the image url by right clicking on it (said I was lazy, I sad nothing about being clever). That's how I got this image from CarlIts pics of a boat I wish were mine.

If I could choose the life I please
Then I would be a boatman
On the canals and the rivers free
No hasty words are spoken
My only law is the river breeze
Which takes me to the open seas
If I could choose the life I please
Then I would be a boatman

Great looking boat Carl, are your days on the canals about to come to an end? Got a sneaky feeling I wont still be on them next year. Its definately becoming a hobby for the rich or cheaper housing solutions for many more.

Are we heading for canals without hobbyists?

Lise and I are now the custodians of an 1895 Bantock boat "Coronation", this will revert to her original name all in good time

Lots of jobs to do, but we are happy to be back on the Cut with good friends

I wonder if I might be allowed to take this topic in a slightly different direction.
I have been asked at short notice if I would give a talk on canals and all that happens there. If I do it, the talk it would be illustrated with photos using power point. The problem is I have few photos of life on the cut, each time I see something that inspires me I dont have the camera to hand or the batteries are flat. I would like to deal with the history of the system showing development. I would like to have access to photos of the old working boats, horse drawn and later engine powered. I would like to show the development of the different styles of boats from the past to what is around today. I would like to show the different types of locks and their paddle gear.
On this subject, the other day on the Bridgewater, I came across a boat that had once been an ice breaker that had been built in 1902, making her 105 years old and still being used. This time I did get a picture, so now I have to find a way of getting it from camera to my new computer.
So can anyone help with photos I could use, or can you point me in the direction of such material. I did of course see Emily Anne last Sunday and we exchanged a few polite words.

David.
PS Maybe you would like to email me direct instead of posting contributions on the Forum the choice is yours.
