Lightbulb A picture is worth 1000 words...

I am still rather new to this forum but would like to make a suggestion. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words...the posts are nearly always devoid of pictures. Sometimes the explanations use yachty jargon that is not familiar to all. Great efforts are made to describe things that could be easily demonstrated with a couple of good photos. My 10 meg camera takes great pictures usually of about 2.5 megabytes. If you open them in Paintshop pro or something similar, go to the task bar and choose "resize". A 30 percent reduction will give you a picture of about 120 kilobytes. With a ratio of 1:1 this size will fill most normal monitor or PC screens. You can save them downsized with some note to identify them. So you end up with a second, smaller copy for this forum.

I think it said....

"Happy and Don, I am tired of maintaining this vessel... Please at your earliest convenience... come get this and take it out of the anchorage..."
