First things first - make
quite sure there is not a page for your boat already written - go
to check if you have not done so already.
here if boat is based outside England)
Most of the stuff you fill be asked to fill in is simple,
names, e-mail dates price etc. but.....
there are three large sections you might like to
prepare on your computer first and then just cut and paste in to the form as you
go along, as if your Internet connection goes down or my web site's server you
will be very angry if you have to do it all again
The three MAIN ones are
"A walk through the boat"
You are asked to give somebody a "virtual tour" in words,
now if you boat already has a page you might be fine with the one there already,
check here, but if not you
should wax lyrical as much as possible...
The exact section you are asked
to complete is worded
Use the box opposite to write
a "walk through" of the boat. Do NOT state things like "new" as if what
you type is re-used in three years time it will not be "new" anymore. So
state things like....
the rear is the cruiser stern where each side of the back doors the gas
bottles are stored, dropping down the steps you enter the rear bedroom
where there is a fixed double bed with en-suite loo....etc. etc.
Do NOT state things like
"we use the coal fire all the time as it keeps
us snug and warm in winter", just stick to facts, you can add
comments like that lower down.
The next section you might like
to prepare off-line is your own comments section when there exact wording is
General Comments - this is where you can
say how wonderful everything about your boat is in your opinion!!
Please now use the box to the right to give any general
information about the boat and your share you are selling. Don't worry if, on reflection, you do not like it,
it can always be changed. There is no limit on the amount of words you use
(within logical reason) but only a plain font will be used. No HTML (or JAVA
The next one that can sometimes be a bit long winded is the
booking system, where the exact wording is
How are the bookings arranged? (e.g.
fixed weeks, draw, round robin etc.) Be specific and give detail.
The way the weeks are booked is very
important to most people.
STICK TO THE FACTS
Add comments like "friendly group always exchanging weeks, we
usually manage.... etc." to the
comments section NOT HERE
If I were you I would open a new word document
(or whatever) up on your PC and type what you need on there first then just cut
and paste it in. Don't worry if it goes outside the box, unless you write War
and Peace I should get it....but save it just in case I do not!
