Saw a crane and barge on its way to Nantucket at around 1pm today about. 15 miles out. Bet it will be out of the water soon.

In Topic: How to hoist a Laser on a cruising boat?

If I recall back in my college days Harvard had lasers and they picked them up by have some sort of rod that had a rope tied to the middle.  They then pushed the rod through the centerboard trunk and the rod went port and starboard and they lifted like that with the bow up in the air.


Might be better that way since to fend off a boat while raising you have less area to fend.

Vey helpful thanks.





Question on the tracker map.


How long will it keep position history.  Can you create different views/filters of the position history that would have their own public link.


As an fyi I have the spot trace product and although it work it only saves last 30 days of position so it no good for what I want and looking to get another product.  




Hi Rob


Positions are kept forever, we don't ever remove positions. To allow people to filter/view between different trips we allow you to setup different 'events' - which have a start/end date. When you set these up, you get a little drop-down on the map, allowing people to choose what event they wish to see.


An example of this is http://my.yb.tl/sorlandet - this is a school sailing ship which has had a unit for a few years, and have lots of trips. Note the dropdown top left, where you can switch between the latest event, previous events, and the 'All Time' option.
