First, open your album in your browser. Highlight and copy the URL from the address bar. Then, post a message on this board. IN the editor window, you will see various icons across the top. You should see a small blue globe with a chain link. Click on that to open the "link" dialogue box. Past your URL address and hit enter. It will then put the link into the text and will preview what your test will say (inside the quotation marks). If you then hit End and then Enter again, the address will appear in the test of you message like this:
http://www.baylinerownersclub.org/gallery/album618

However, after you hit enter the first time, the system will preview your insert and will highlight the section which will be displayed. At that point, you can type in whatever your want to appear in the text, like "Link to my Album". Then when you hit enter, the "Link to my album" will appear in the test. Note the link to my album in my signature.

no I just sold my concorde boat and bought this piece of mush. I knew it need the floor fixed which seemed kind of OK but as I ripped out the floor I noticed the side pockets, walls around helm, seat bases, in fact everythin is mush. The guy left it out in the rain for three years with no cover, apart from that the main thing I thought was the fact that the boat has hardly been used when cleaniing the bodywork inside and out - it looks like brand new - not a scratch or anything maybe light wear on decals etc, and the engine had a rebuild four years ago (got receipt) and started first time. But its no consolation the poor girl has only seen rain Water in the last few years.
Plenty mushrooms wonder if I could make a tasty meal !!!

You might want to wander over to iboats and look in the restoration forum, there have been many such projects done there. Looks like when I did my old Four Winns. A BIG JOB but you can make it better than new. Here's some pix of mine:

nice pics. is that a non slip coating on the floor or carpet. spent yesterday
re-flooring most of it looks ok feeling a bit more confident. but ive noticed the box that makes up the helm is soft too. this is looking more like a major rebuild.
ive already taken out six bin bags of mushy wood already!

After I installed the new deck I had the 'glass shop coat it in non-skid gelocoat. Cost more that way but I was able to get rid of the carpet on the floor which contributed to the rot by holding in moisture. You could also put on a non-skid such as Durabak which is like a bed liner but specifically for marine use. Carpet to me has no place in an open boat. I kept it only on the gunnels so I didn't have to re-do them too, not really necessary. There are also non skid paints you can use over the 'glass. All depends on how good you can get your glass work. The only thing good about carpet is that it hides imperfections in the 'glass work!
