tried to post a few pix, but too large

just wondering if anyone has a good link or source for these, the picture really does it justice. about 3 feet wide, 2 feet deep, 3 feet tall, with a piece of teak
on the top.

If the image is too large to display from a photo-hosting site, you'll either want to edit them to be smaller, or use the settings on your camera to shoot a smaller image.

If you are trying to attach them, see below -

Here's how to post photos on this forum:

First - don't attach photos. Only a tiny version will display.

Second - Post the photos on the web. Use your own website, or a free image hosting service like www.flickr.com, picturetrail, photobucket, etc.

Once posted on the web, right-click the photo to copy the URL (web address). Always test first by pasting the photo URL into the location field (http:// ) of a web browser and see if the photo displays.

(Flickr only - You usually have to first click the ALL SIZES link near the top -- then you can get the URL by right-clicking or copying the "Grab the photo's URL" data field below the image. If you don't want the largest size (displayed) you can then click another option in the 'Available sizes" links above the image.)

Third - once posted on the web, try this procedure while logged in to this Forum:

1. Click the "User CP" link in the browser window in the top left of the menu bar.

2. Click the "Edit Options" link about halfway down the left column.

3. At the bottom of the next page in "Misc Options", select "Enhanced Interface" from the pulldown list. Click the SAVE CHANGES button.

4. Once this interface has been selected, in any "Reply" window you can click the "insert photo" icon --> a little yellow square icon with the stamp in the upper right corner, the mountains in the lower center.

5. Once the little dialog box titled "Please enter the URL of your image" comes up, paste the URL of the photo in the field.

If unsure of the procedure, test first by pasting the photo URL into the location field (http:// ) of a web browser.

Remember, the PHOTO URL will end in .jpg, not .htm or html. URLs ending in .htm are the page that the image is on, not the photo location itself. If the photo URL ends in other code, try deleting everything after the "xxxxxx.jpg" part of the URL to get it to display on web forums.

Not really. Your description could be anything. Follow Thorn's directions above and post a photo.

A lot of the classic BassBoats--New England Bass Boats--were fitted with boxes sporting the dimensions you mention. Typically center hinged with two lids that lifted up from the outboard ends. The skipper, trolling from the tiller, could drop a caught fish in into his seat without leaving the helm. Tried to find a pic, but couldnt. Try contacting Nauset Boats, Crosby Yachts, Dyer Yachts (The Anchorage), etc.

Also, Pompanette (http://www.pompanette.com/pompweb.nsf/70a12526ecb684b785256793002224fe/2d0e0152efb15b85852567b30016cedc?OpenDocument) makes these f'glass boxes designed as deck boxes. Nicely made, you could glue/fasten your own teak to the top. Or maybe they;d do it for you.....This one is 38" w x 17" deep x 18" High, but they offer about a dozen sizes.http://www.pompanette.com/pompweb.nsf/70a12526ecb684b785256793002224fe/2d0e0152efb15b85852567b30016cedc/WebGraphic/0.84?OpenElement&FieldElemFormat=gif
