A while back I did a tutorial on Sailfar for sheet to tiller steering. I use it all the time when soloing, rarely am I in the cockpit for steering, usually just for reading or other stuff....
The most fun is to pass others, when they look in the cockpit expecting to see someone else there:)

Should still be under "Sheet to tiller steering" in the Tips and Techniques section.

I hate to be the last guy on the planet to still not understand how to get pics posted on the CPYOA website...but somebody has to bring up the rear.  I have been trying for several days to get a pic show up as part of my profile.  I have successfully uploaded an image into the CPYOA Photobucket account...it shows up there with no problems...a head-on shot of WindRush and me...captioned "CP 23-3 WindRush".  But I have attempted to copy and paste the URL address from the CPYOA account into my profile data page numerous times and have no luck in getting the image to show up anywhere...on my profile page, posts, etc.  I know I'm doing something wrong but I'll be damned if I can figure out what it is.  I'm also not sure how I could likewise incorporate other images that I would like to show up in replies to posts.  Any and all help is sincerely appreciated.

To get a picture to show next to you name, an avatar, In your profile, click on "I have my own image", then paste the http: code of your image from photo bucket.  Save and it should show.  The upload function does not work.

To post a picture in a post, open your picture in photo bucket. Once the pic is open, on the RIGHT side under Image Links, click on the code next to "Image Code".  That will copy the code, and it will say IMG with some brackets before and after the http: along with the rest of the link.
Then, you just use the paste function right in a post where you want the picture to show.  

It will paste a long gyberish code starting with bracket IMG..yadda, yadda. Press enter to put some space between the picture and the next thing to type.

I can't actually show you what it should say, because it will just show the picture.

Give it a try, it's super easy once you know how.

Thanks for the help...it looks like the avatar image is finally showing up in my profile so I assume it will now be part of posts and replies.  I will give the second bit of help...how to post pics in replies...in a couple of days.  Keep your fingers crossed and thanks again.

I'm an old guy, and nothing should be this complicated when it comes to doing anything with photos.  I can't even enjoy seeing whatever photos might already be posted to the "gallery".  Fortunately I know what most of these boats look like, so I'll survive.  I am curious, most sites you can just go to "photos" and there they are, magic.  I attempted using photo bucket and finally gave up.  We have an iMac, so maybe this is the problem?  Like I said, I'm an old guy, I don't have any trouble typing, emailing or researching the net.  I can even email friends my photos!  But I realize I'm not in step with the times, I don't even have a cell phone....I don't need to be that connected....just my two cents...fair winds!

Mayrel,
Here are some directions I posted in a different thread for someone that was having difficulty.  I also use an iMac...so that is not your problem.  It works fine with an iMac.

Go to Photobucket and set up an account.
Click on Upload....you can upload from Computer, Facebook or URL.  My photos are on my computer.  Click "choose photos and videos"  Choose the file your photo is in, click the photo and it will download.  Once it is downloaded, the photo shows up on the lower part of the page.  Click on it.  Then you see the photo and to the right click in the box to the right next to IMG ("Copied" shows up in the box).  This will copy the link.  You can now go to CPYOA, start a reply, and paste the link (easiest way is to click "control v").  The photo should show up in your post and you are good to go.

The directions I posted were for a PC.  The only difference for an iMac is the last part when you paste the link.  Instead of "control v" click "command v" on the iMac.  It really is a pretty easy process using photobucket.  I had not used photobucket until a few months ago, and just kind of stumbled my way through it.  If you are an "old guy", you can always get grand kids to help you.  I was new to the iMac about a year ago and my 18 year old daughter was the expert that showed me the ropes.

...."I don't know how to post photos but next time I go out I plan to take some pictures.  If another member would be willing, I could e-mail them for posting." If you can e~mail pics, you can post 'em on CPYOA.

Nothing to it.
The pictures you want to show on CPYOA must come from a OFF LINE photo sharing site. There are many. I picked PHOTOBUCKET for my 1100+ pictures. First you must scan a picture from camera or printer and upload it to your Photobucket account. It's free to use this PHOTOBUCKET.

Each picture on Photobucket will display a pull down menu when the mouse's cursor is parked on the picture that you want to show on CPYOA.

Read the menu. Pull the cursor down to the DIRECT CODE found under the picture. Click on the DIRECT CODE, it will show the word 'COPIED' an the word will fade away. Not necessary, but as a precaution, I always go up on click on EDIT and COPY, just to be sure the DIRECT CODE was copied.

Minimize this window. Bring up the post that you want to put a picture into.
ABOVE every box or post that you typed a message into are two lines of icons.

Bottom Line, second from left going to the right you'll see a picture [it's to the right of what looks like a round red/blue pinwheel.] The icon you want kind of looks like a beach with a hill and some trees, blue sky. Click on that.

In your post you'll see something like this  [ img ]  [/ i m g ]  the space between the two [  ]  [  ]   is where you PASTE the DIRECT CODE that you copied. 

It's actually pretty hard to place the blinking cursor 'tween the two box's if your old like me. If you don't get ALL of the DIRECT CODE into the right spot you'll only see a square box with a red X in it after you push post and go backand look~see at what the message to the group looks like.

Multiple pics can be posted by going back up to the 'Beach Icon' and selecting and coping and pasting another DIRECT CODE from the PHOTOBUCKET album .

Trumpin', I mean Skip...

I think you missed a key discussion this summer when you pulled up this topic from last year.  You no longer have to upload pictures first to a third party site. Changes were made to the site to allow direct uploading.

Just click on 'additional options' when pressing reply and you'll see how to attach a photo to your post right from your computer.  It's very easy and doesn't require an external site.  If the photo size is too large to upload, use a program called Irfanview to shrink them down.

Give it a try, it's pretty easy.

Well, there are two ways to put pictures to use on this site.  One way is to attach the picture just like you did above-by looking for the "additional options" under your reply,  which will place the photo at the end of your post.  Or if you want the picture in the post itself, for example for the reader to follow a story with several photos and text near the pictures, you'll have still use the old way of posting photos by using a third party hosting site.  It can be done, and it's really not hard if you do it once or twice.   Let me know if you need help, I can walk you through it on the phone.  It's way easier than you think.

ok, i got it now.

what was confusing me is that you don't see the pic when you preview your post.

as for the traditional way, i've got that down.
