Boatlaunch.co.uk

Anyone know what's happened to boatlaunch.co.uk, it no long displays pictures of the slips, you can see something is there, but nothing shows.

I've tried in on both iPad and PCs still not showing?

Thanks

Adam

Just looked on iPad and some photos showing, same photos that I remember the last time I looked. You tried turning it on off and on again?

none of the slips I've looked at seem to work, it used show them, but nothing now, although you can see the image box is there?

Hi, we are going to look into this but since the website is free and has no ads, it has got left behind. Thanks for the nudge.

Hdav,

it's online, just the pictures are missing.
You are quite right though, I wouldn't mind a few adverts to help keep it going.

Pretty hopeless by the look of things....just looked at this site for the first time. I looked at Holyhead harbour for the free slip I use. Doesn't exist on this site, just the two pay slips.....

Goeff,

Any update on this, it's such a useful site, would be such a shame for it to go!

Happy to help if I can to get it back up..

Thanks

Adam

Good news Geoff thanks. Just as a test I looked at West Mersea Public Slipway, Mersea Island, Essex.

The image/s that were previously there were missing. However it did allow me to upload one of my own which shows OK... except as there was no waiting/uploading indicator I clicked upload a second time as I thought it hadn't started the process... now there are two images and it seems the uploader can't delete.

Cheers.

David

Oh it seems it's a bit glitchy still. I've come out of the site and gone back in. Looking at Mersea Island there are two adj slipways. The one called "Public Hard" comes up OK with its old image. Now when I click on the location marker for West Mersea Public Slipway it comes up with the header and details for the adj Public Hard.

Think I've broken it!!

It won't give details of my local slip when you hit the pin.
