Tornado Rescue  Bottom

  • I'm in Northern California and am rebuilding a 'Texas Tilt' (hydraulically actuated) trailer for a Sail Craft Tornado I recently 'rescued' from destruction.

    I raced these boats back in the 80's and had a Panther Craft with damaged hulls. I've cut that one up, and am going to put the Sail Craft on the trailer.

    I'll post pictures if anyone is interested.

  • I would love to see the photos of both boat and trailer.

  • So how do I upload photos?

    I understand that I have to click on Image and put a link to the photo img /img tags. Does that require that I have the photo on a server on the web somewhere?

    This is my initial photo, to make sure I know how to post.

    Below is what I got when I opened the image in the gallery, then did a right click, used 'copy image location' then pasted it between the image tags:

    https://www.thebeachcats.com/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=131590&g2_serialNumber=3

    'Copy image location' instead of link ?

    ok, sorry for the inflicting everyone with these details. I'm going to leave this link up as a reminder to me until I get more photos of this effort up. Weird how it came out blurry.

    MN3, can you help me here? How did you get it to display clearly?

    More later

    This is the 'Texas Tilt' Tornado Trailer I'm working on.

    I've posted additional pictures in Albums>Beachcat Technical>Texas Tilt Tornado Trailer

    They are all rotated 90 degrees, which I don't understand, the source file is not rotated

    Help
