Chesapeake sailor looking around

I've been weekend sailing for 30+ years on the Chesapeake.

A few of my notes on sailing are at my Dropbox, which I am not allowed to link to until I post 10 messages.

Would this be in the form of a manual, tome, learned treatise, or sales brochure?

Well, I am NOT a Nigerian finance minister looking for someone to help me move 30 Million out of the country.

They are a collection of pieces I wrote about sailing and boat maintenance, such as self-pulling masts, etc.

Welcome to sailnut mf70.

It strikes me that dropbox is an exclusive service for holding your precious files in the cloud (exclusive in that it excludes everyone but you, unless you give permission). I wouldn't like to share my dropbox data with the world.
What you can do is create web pages out of your files that can be viewed by the world. Many of us have boat blogs which were created for just that purpose.

Yup. I know others that are bothered by aspects of the Dropbox model, but I've been pretty happy with Dropbox so far. When a link is shared, it's not carte blanche to root around in the files, unless I actually share a folder.

I also have a couple of other sites. I'd be happy to share the appropriate ones on this forum, once THEY LET ME POST LINKS.

There. That's three posts. Seven to go.

Surely you understand that minor limitations reduce spam on Internet fora?
