    Default Footy Pics

    I thought you might enjoy somewhere to show those extra Footy pictures without clogging up the Footy Web page.

    Well the difference is that here, I, can post the Photos, whereas on the footy website they must go through the webslave and nobody should hog the bandwith with lots of photos of their own boat (IMHO)

    On this site I am happy to be a HOG until told to piss off.

    OK

    Your use of the "English" language is most impressive!

    Hey .... he's a sailor - right? Just needs a peg leg, an eye patch and a parrot on the shoulder !


    Sailors are always supposed to start a conversation with the phrase "aarrrr, matey" ! it's written in the rule book. wink.

    OK, but who's got some pictures to share? How about something other than a little boat chasing the big ones? Ever try a macro shot? Really close in)

    What scale would the Footy be, approximately? We would need to make some assumptions to determine that. How about some scale sailors? We could even make that a rule for new classes.

    OK, Tomo, how about some pictures of all the Footies you've built? Perhaps instead of criticizing what others have done, you should simply follow through on some of your own suggestions. Maybe the local school or health club will let you borrow their swimming pool for a "fleet shot"

    I'm still building a boat so I don't have anything ready for the camera. I don't think any local places with pools will let you put a boat in. We've been looking for a winter site for years.

    If I finish one, and Spring gets here, I will take some pictures, and send them to somebody.

    Oh, I thought I read that you had a bunch already built. I must have misunderstood your comment. A friend of mine has a favorite quote that he uses regularly: "Don't tell me what you are going to do, tell me what you've done".

    BTW, when you take the pictures, there's no need to "send them to somebody", you can post them directly here on the forum.
