Here is the album of boat photographs uploaded by members. If you are a member you can add to this album by uploading your own photographs. (You can see the other albums via these links: Events Album Page,  Misc Album Page)

A couple of points to remember:

1) Only upload photographs that you own or have taken. (Think about copyright/privacy/decency etc. when posting.)

2) Please reduce image size so they are less than about 1500x1000pixels (or less than 1MB) or we will run out of space.

3) Add a short caption to your photographs, so that viewers know to which boat they relate. Captions must be added by the person uploading the picture and can be is done once the file is uploaded and visible.
