Title: Aloha Owners Map
Post by: Bill Hutton on July 25, 2019, 10:27:40 PM
I've been playing with Google Maps and think it's kind of working now. The idea is that you would drop a pin where you keep your boat, add your boat name, owner info and maybe a pic or two.
It's great to see so many new owners on this site, and if we can see everyone on a world map it may bring us a little closer together.
Anyone with the link should be able to edit the map. If you can't edit email me at alohahutton
at  gmail.com and I'll hook you up.
Cheers, Bill Hutton

Cool idea Bill!  Knot Faster's been added to the map at her BQYC slip.

KnotFaster, Thanks!   The software isn't entirely intuitive but it does work.  For the others that are listed on the map we need more pictures.   KnotFaster say hi to Windover for me when they arrive.  Bill H. (SV Alohalani)

21 boats so far in 3 countries... add yours too. Don't forget a picture or two (you too Salty).

I've modified the map by adding layers to represent the different boat lengths. To do this I had to delete the original entries - so apologies, but I had to delete some of your pictures.  Please add them back.
We're up to 45 boats now.

I have "pinned" my A32 to the map, in Midland, On. but cannot find how to enter my info in the list of owners.  Any thoughts"  Bruce      A great idea, by the way.

Bruce,
I see you on the map and the map legend under the 32ft boats. Try adding a couple of pics and you hull #.

I have added a couple of photos of Okaga being built, in 1987.   By the way, there are two other A32's in Bay Port Marina, Midland;  Annie's Song and Soul Passage.

Bruce, I know Annie's Song from Bronte.  Please add them to the map if you can.  Bill

Bill.  I tried to add Annie's Song but although there is a marker showing at our marina, it lists it under A34.s!  I am afraid you are the expert on this site and I am the learner.  Could you fix it?    Bruce

Sorry Bruce....yes the editor kind of sucks.  If you're using Google Chrome then you need to click on the legend and DESELECT all the boat types except the A32s. Then you can add Annie's Song.  I can't see a way to change it once it's in there except to delete it and start again.
But thanks for helping out.  We've got over 60 boats listed now.

It appears that the link to your map has been discontinued.  Bruce

I guess it's not Firefox friendly. I wasn't able to edit at all.

There is a free Android app you can download: My Google Maps.
Try that and let me know. Or try Chrome?

I'm getting a Google 400 error.  Tried it several times.  Any suggestions?

Sorry Julie, I've just seen this entry now.


I'm not a big fan of this Google Map application, but it was free.  There is also a free downloadable app at the Android Playstore called 'My Maps' which you could try.... but I don't know how my link is pasted in...


If you have tried using My Maps or an old Windows laptop to edit the map and can't get it to work let me know and I'll add you to it.


IN FACT if anyone is having issues, private message me with your email and I'll add you to the map.
[Dennis Clarke has just done that as he's sold his boat.  :( [size=78%] I guess we won't see him here anymore as I think he's deleted his ID][/size]


For the map I would need:
-your name(s)
-boat name
-boat length
-location including marina/mooring/club
-hull # if you've got it
-some people list their email addresses, while I've listed my Instagram name (whatever you like or nothing)


Regards, Bill H (and happy new year)

Hi Bill.   I see that I am no longer on the list and I am having troubled finding how to add my boat back.  Could you give a little primer on how to add a new boat to the map?   Bruce  (Okaga)

I'll try Bruce.
Once you have the map opened, zoom into your marina/dock
You should see something like the image I've attached.
Click on the Legend to open it if it isn't already.
Deselect all boat types except yours and then click anywhere on the map to get back to it.
Click on the upside-down teardrop and add your boat by clicking on your location. Add your boat name, your name etc. And click save.
Remember to reselect all boat types again in the Legend.


If you don't see what I have in my screenshot you don't have edit permission for some reason. PM me and I'll help out
Here's the link again:

Sorry Bill, no go.  I close all except A32s and find no upside-down teardrop or any other way of adding a location.  Bruce

Sorry Bruce...(everyone).


Let's try this link:

If this doesn't work try different hardware. It worked on my wife's  Android phone. OR send me an email with your email address....  I hate technology. ...
