Super futuristic maps on boatlaunch

Take a look at the new map that we will shortly be putting onto boatlaunch on www.boatlaunch.co.uk/index2.html

We are particularly interested in any bugs and performance issues with the new interactive maps.

Feel free to post here or email me on geoff@boatlaunch.co.uk. Many thanks.

Excellent

toy to play with, takes a couple of minutes to suss out how to manipulate, but seems to work very well

Geoff

seems to me to be a market for a decent website which can be a definitive place to visit to check out if a prospective boat someone is about to purchase is declared stolen

there doesnt seem to be anywhere on uk websites with a full comprehensive listing which insurance companies/police can place details of stolen boats (they are all small seperate sites all over the place)

the internet offers an excellent opportunity to solve this, maybe an opportunity for you ?

VERY VERY GOOD!!!
Is a pitty (I know is difficult!!) that the map site does not cover other countries such as Spain, France, Italy and Greece.
Is a thought though if you ever think of doing it. Immagine how many hits boatlaunch will get!!

Not sure if its just my PC but if you use the zoom + button at the top the map zooms but the lauch point arrows dont move with the maps.

Or it could be that I am not seeing the outline of the coast.

Is it just me ?.

Regards Gary

It works. You just have to go slow on it.
Zoom a little bit 1st. move the cursor closer to your point etc etc.
It works!!
Is GREAT HELP. Just wish they could the same for other countries in Europe namely Greece )
What about Geoff??? I'll make sure the site is in every RIB magazine in Greece!!!! and I have a data base with all the launching sites in Greece!!

Overseas launch sites.

Thanks for the feedback.
We get a lot of requests for launch sites overseas, but very few people send any information. We will shortly be showing a few slipways in northern France and if anyone has any info please please send it in. We need reasonably accurate lat and long data and we will put it on the web. If your information is sitting on a file drop me an email and we can probably take it as it is.
