    Annie, do you have any options when you make the image "clickable", something where you could remove the float: left; property?

    Forgive me Oscar.  While i follow the gist of what you are saying, i never use Html and the Blogger editing tool is designed for eejits like me.  My tablet has its moments, as you can see by the fact that i can't post in the white space when quoting. Now i can't even find the icons i mentioned in my last comment.  The  edit seems to have gone back to the original settings.  Must try harder.

    My blog gets posted to me and it read perfectly on both my phone and my tablet, but looks a little different from what I actually posted, which is usually the case.  I suspect that I inadvertently "optimised" it for hand held devices.  At the bottom of the screen were several icons - a phone, laptpp, desktop pc, etc.  I hate pictogram - what's wrong with words? - and didn't bother to work out what they are for.  I'll check next time I post.

    I'm viewing on a bog standard Mac desktop.  I never figured it could be MY end!  LOL.


    David T might be right it is to do with text wrap.  I will look on my blog.


    Fair winds!

    I wrote this latest blog with the "new and improved" version.  Need I say more?

    I have the same problem. It's there on some photos, but not on all. I think it's to do with the settings in the blog for text wrap around images and the size of those images.

    Annie I am playing with the same BLOG web provider as you.  You might never look at yours online but the sizing of the text column VS the photo size means that text run down the side of your pics in single letters and is difficult for my 60 year old mind to read.  Would it be possible to maybe expand the pics to eliminate side text or eliminate text from the photo space?


    Hi David, it must be your browser settings as I do not have that problem. Using Firefox on a Linux laptop.

    Since I last posted on my blog, I have been spending days at a time sanding, scraping filling, sanding and sanding.  A lot of it on my back.  This doesn't make for rivetting photography, so my latest post isn't that exciting to look at.  The reason that the sanding has taken so long, is that I am working on my rubbing strakes and using an electric sander risks rounding over or creating hollows.   I don't need to add to the difficulties I already have in achieving something that looks fair and even.

    Hi Annie nice work and great thinking to do trip tabs with lashings as well!  Your foredeck is wonderful, a HUGE contrast to the badger foredeck you were used to!  A toddler could not even fall off!

    As usual I am learning thru you!  Best regards.

    Yes that is what I like best too, as little steel as possible using composites and lashing. Not only for less weight but also because I am no good working steel and I don't like it much. That is a great boat you are building, I saw the photos on Kohler group. You are doing a good job.
