How do you access the drop box?

Jules -Since DropBox is essentially a folder on the web anyone with access can put anything in the folder. Therefore, DropBox is available through invitation only to keep spammers and others from mucking it up. I will send you out an invite to your email address that is on the site.

Also, Jules if you have any documents related to CSYs please feel free to drop them in the "New Contributions" folder on DropBox. I will move them to the proper folder. If you are sure of where the document should reside you can put the document directly into the proper folder. If you want to put a few pictures of your boat on DropBox you can make a new folder in the "Pictures" folder and add the pictures. It would be best if you used your boat name and the three digit hull number to identify these folders, e.g., CSY441080778 "Audra" would be in a folder "Audra 108"

Anyone else that wants to get into DropBox please send me (Peter Roach) a Private Message thorough the site and I will promptly send you out an invite.

Jules,

Unfortunately this site does not allow you to post full documents or high res pictures. We have had a discussion for a couple of years on developing a CD with all of the accumulated documents for the CSY. Think of this site as a CD only it is hosted on the web and anyone who has been invited can contribute.

We have loaded a number of documents that I had onto the site to get it started. Examples are:

Lots of graphics of the CSY logo
Perkins 4-154 manual
Crosby manual
Carpenter's certificate
Stability calculation spreadsheet
Brochures
A couple of articles and ads
Keel cut diagram
Construction specifications
Line drawings of CSYs

Dropbox allows you to add documents; however, it is not like this site. You can not post new entries or have a discussion. It is complementary in that if you have a discussion here that may need a few more pictures or better resolution pictures you can post them to DropBox. Hopefully everyone will start posting documents they might have on their computers so they can be shared with everyone else.

I wanted to let everyone know that I sent out the 56th Dropbox invitation today. We have a LOT of CSY owners now using Dropbox. If you have any CSY specific information please take a few minutes and upload it so that everyone can share.

Also, please remember to put pictures of your projects into Dropbox. The pictures should include the name of your boat so if anyone wants to contact you about a project they will know who to contact

Hi Peter,

Water damaged my laptop while in Borneo last week and now running a new machine but unfortunately I lost a lot of my settings and am in the process of reinstalling. Can you send me another invite to Dropbox please?

Many thanks.

By the way, Bob Lewis sent me some fantastic construction photos of the Antigua build but I think was having problems uploading them. Once I have Dropbox access again, I'll put them up for him if they are not already there.

Joan - unfortunately I have not figured out (or it is not possible) for me to get to your email address on this new forum site. There is an earlier post in this string that gives you a hint at my email address. Send me a with your email address and I will send you a DropBox invite. Alternatively, you can put your email on the forum and I will erase it when I send a DropBox invite. Most people write it out in text and use the format emailname at mailserver dot com

Peter,

I just tried getting on DropBox just by going to Dropbox.com using the login we setup (through Peter) a long time ago.  It seems to be working.

I am not an expert on dropbox, but I think I just sent you an invite to the CSY folder.

That should give you access.

If Peter already did that, you can just delete that email.

Hey Peter,
I thought I recalled there being a list of hull ID's in the Dropbox but The ink boat lists I can find are in a .cref file that I can't seem to open......are they anywhere else ? I ran into a friend of yours in St.Augustine who has a maroon WT....I think he said the current name was Windswept....formerly Jenny M ? Maybe....I think his name was David....said you guys had just met for lunch recently
Title: Re: Drop Box
Post by: Peter Roach on May 24, 2015, 08:31:04 AM
someone must have deleted the file. I'll see if I can get it back. Sherry may want to put the original file back in there. I'll let you know.

When was windswept going through St Augustine? I have lots of friends heading up the ditch right now. I meet them in st Augustine when they come through. It is fun to be a cruiser!

Post by: Soggy Geek on December 04, 2016, 09:12:08 AM
Hi Louis,

Dropbox is similar to Google Drive.  It is a web-based "virtual disk drive".  A bunch of CSY owners have pooled information we have (schematics and drawings, pictures of projects, etc etc) so others can see what we've done.

Here is an earlier post talking about it:
http://csyowners.com/forums/index.php?topic=3476.msg3483#msg3483

I think there's a Dropbox app that you can install that will "sync" whatever is in the Dropbox "cloud" folder to your hard drive.

But if you don't want to install the Dropbox program, you can still just browse the CSY Dropbox folders with any web browser and download whatever is of interest to you.  (Best way, in my opinion).

In order to access the CSY Drop Box account, you have to be added by our Drop Box guy, Peter Roach.  Send him a Private Message through the forum with your email address, and he will add you.

Peter's not been real active on the forum lately, though.  So if you don't get a response from him in a day or so, let me know.

Sherry

So the first step is to email the owner of our drive folder, Peter Roach.
