Aloha Owners Map
« 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)

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.
Work is for people who don't go sailing.

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