Hello everybody,

Hope you are all well.

A few of you have sent me pictures of your boats, some genius ideas you've come up with for your crafts and so forth. I'd like to see more! And not just that, I'd like to share your videos and pictures on YBW.com, for all to see.
Whether it's an image of your beloved boat, craft you've spotted when out and about, a lovely photo taken when out in nature, doing water sports, sailing, a funny video or image you've taken, a great idea you've come up with, your pet out on a boat, your children's first day out sailing, I'd love to see them and share them with all of our website readers.
Just make sure you own the rights to the image/video (i.e. it's been taken by you or a friend or family member who doesn't mind you sharing it and not something lifted off the internet) and email it over to: ybwdotcom@gmail.com, clearly marking it 'For Stef'. If there's a story behind it, please tell us that too.
Thank you everybody, I look forward to receiving them!

Stef

Perhaps you might like to advertise for some people with boats to write your news articles, because it certainly doesn't look as if your current incumbents have the slightest level of knowledge...

I might possibly be interested, but first I'd need to know what rates you pay for such content, and what license terms are you expecting?

You already know the licence terms, they're in the Terms of Service. They say "(iii) you grant to us a worldwide, royalty free licence to use the Material in perpetuity in any format and on any media, this means for example that we may use your Material in the print and digital editions of magazines published by TIME INC. (UK) LTD, the Website and on any other website operated by TIME INC. (UK) LTD; ", so it sounds to me as if you'd be very generous to submit anything!

Be nice lads.... grow up a bit

she is just trying to make the web pages look more interesting

people have been complaining about re-hashing RNLI press releases and the wording of the headlines of boat reviews....

and I have to say that the catalogue of death and mishap on the right hand side of every page is a bit wearing. I did not need to know that some old bloke fell into a canal and got sucked under

so a few pix on the right of some interesting boats with a few interesting words attached from the bloke who owns and sails it would be a lovely thing.

what have you got to lose by letting more people see your pictures rather than just hiding them away on photobucket or on your hard drive.

she is offering to turn your pictures and words into web pages for you

I love seeing pictures of other peoples boats

raises my spirits when I come to the inbox in the morning if some-one has been nice enough to email me a nice shot of their boat

I thought I knew most of the small twin keelers until this picture appeared in my inbox

this also appeared in my inbox

phwoar!

who could not have their spirits raised by such a thing.

The days when pictures were worth any money have long gone.

So, Steph

here are some pictures of what I consider to be the finest trailer sailer ever made.

The Hunter Minstrel. She is perfect for exploring the shallower bits of the UK. 22 feet long and draws a mere 13 inches She can sit on almost any surface on her two steel keels. . She has a hinged steel keel for sailing upwind as well as a kick up outboard and rudder. She has a gunter rig so the mast is short and very easy to drop.
She has a lovely cockpit and down below a separate heads and two excellent 7 foot berths.

All this and she can be trailered home at the end of the season.

this is her being sailed

http://www.keepturningleft.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/45-dylan-winter-minstrel-sailing-at-last.jpg

here she is on a trailer being towed to new adventures

http://www.keepturningleft.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/42-heading-for-North-Norfolk.jpg

this is her being launched using the break back trailer and roll off dolly

http://www.keepturningleft.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/43-launch-day-using-the-break-back-trailer.jpg

this is the outboard well - it can take both a long and a short shaft engine because the hull has a life-boat style prop slot

http://www.keepturningleft.co.uk/wp...e-boat-the-short-shaft-runs-in-the-tunnel.jpg

this is the accommodation which is also excellent

http://www.keepturningleft.co.uk/wp...ter-minstrel-simple-cabin-looking-forward.jpg


as standard they have the galley over the berth

http://www.keepturningleft.co.uk/wp...r-minstrel-galley-on-port-side-over-berth.jpg

which I thought was a terrible idea

http://www.keepturningleft.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/20-final-galley-box-in-use.jpg

She has got me 5to some great places - deep into the Wash and Up the river Nene, along the Ouse as far as York and along the oldest canal in England to Lincoln.

I have been up the Tees, Wear and Tyne and all the way to the Moray Firth.

Brilliant little boat.


Please feel free to use any of the above in any way you see fit and for freemans

So they are. I had assumed that the terms of service only applied to stuff posted to the forum (and we already know from the Classic Boat debacle that we've signed that away), not sent to random Gmail addresses. But you're quite right, the website terms would apply to anything submitted for possible use on the website, as requested here.

or

about the mean spirited luddite forumites who think they should be paid per picture and per word

"Mean spirited"? Wasn't it the convention in times gone by that YBW contributors were paid? Maybe not a realistic amount, but at least a contribution for their efforts. I don't see it as "mean spirited" to expect that sort of treatment.

the world has moved on

words and images in digits are worth almost nothing

so why not get paid the closest thing to almost nothing.... and that is.... nothing
