Sea Quest now like new

Post by Chas C »

Big shout out to Nick Gates for the work he's done on my 17 year old Sea Quest, its carbon hull is now like new. If I ever work out how to add a photo I will.

It's pretty straightforward now, photos can be hosted on the site, just drag & drop into a window then insert into the post where you want them. See here for details.

Don't drop it directly into the post, drop it into into the box provided and the link then appears in the post; see extract below from the link I posted:
A new tab has been added to the bottom of the full editor, select the tab and drag your photo(s) in to the box or brows to your photos. Once the photo is uploaded the BBCode is automatically added to the editor. Do not edit the text between the [img] tags as this is the important bit.
To see the box to drop into you need to select "Full Editor & Preview" below the composition window, then the tab for "Upload image"

So this was is dire need of refurbish with 17 years of beach landings and ferry crossings etc etc. It looks almost new now ready for more abuse. Nick is based in Emsworth (nr Portsmouth). He's not looking for more kayak refurbs at present as he's overloaded with bigger boats but might have time next Winter. Thanks Chris now have photo loading cracked :-).
