Hello,
I would like to post a picture of my sliding seat/portage yoke combo that I use on my 38 SPECIAL solo.

Could anyone tell me how to post a picture on this forum?

Thanks!

Dick

HI
Assuming it is formatted to jpeg.

You must first upload your photo to a server. I use ImageCave www.imagecave.com

This is a free web server that allows you to store your photos indefinitely.

Once you have loaded the photo on ImageCave choose:

Img function from your toolbar (When you create a new post, you are in edit mode and see various functions at the top of your screen such as Bold, italics, etc. )

Select IMG then paste the link from ImageCave into your post and then close the link with another IMG

looks like this:

Hello Again,
My first try seems to have failed. I'll try again.
Here it is hopefully.

your address is not linking to a photo ... try typing the address into a browser first, and if the image comes up that is the correct address. You can sometimes right click on the image itself, and obtain the link location that way.

Hi,
I think my problem might be that I don't how to link it or I don't know the address.
I know where the photo is archived and I can view it but I can,t seem to get it to show up. Maybe I have to place the photo on a different photo host site.

Weird, the picture will link through the url address tags but not the image link tags. Well that's about the limit of my troubleshooting skills :-?

You're right, I think the shutterfly web address needs an image tag (jpg, tiff, etc.). I've copied it to another location, and here is YOUR very beautiful seat/yoke!!

Hello,
I have finally figured it out and have a picture posted. The Sliding Seat/Portage Yoke works out very well for me. The seat has full length mortice and tenon joints as you can see in the picture. It is glued with epoxy and laced with rawhide. I lightly sanded the raw hide after it dried to remove sharp edges and gave the seat several coats of spar varnish. I have mounted commercially available portage pads about 4" thick that mount on the rear of the seat. The pads serves as a low backrest when the seat is slid into the paddling position and it also raises the canoe up from my shoulders so it is easier to see and I don't bump my head into the bottom of the boat when portaging. The soft pads are very easy on the shoulders and I am able to portage long distances. The canoe weighs in at about 42 pounds. The pads were not installed yet when this picture was taken.

Dick
