How to Add Yourself to the CSY Map
« on: June 16, 2009, 05:30:16 PM »
A little more on how to add YOURSELF to the map...

1.  Click in the map link (here it is again for your convenience):
CSY Owners Map

This should take you to a Google Maps page.  My map page also has an SSCA map.  So make sure you are looking at the "Map of CSYs"

2.  Zoom down to where your boat is located.  You might be able to put in the address of your marina or house, to get Google to be really accurate, or just keep zooming.

3.  Click the EDIT button on the left sidebar.  Now you should see a little balloon like thing in the upper right corner of the map.  That is a pushpin.  

4.  Grab the pushpin with your mouse and drag the pushpin where your boat is on the map.  You can move it once you drop it.

5.  Put your boat name in the title and your name and boat type in the description box associated with the pushpin.

6.  Double click on the pushpin to change the color of the pushpin to match your boat type, as follows:

    CSY 33 - Green
    CSY 37 - Red
    CSY 44 WO - Royal Blue
    CSY 44 WT - Purple
    CSY 44 PHK - Yellow
    CSY 44 Fisherman - Aqua Blue

7.  When finished, click the Done button.

If you have troubles, post them here.

Got the map, zoomed on my location, but I can't seem to find an "Edit Button" anywhere.

Harry,

The Edit button will not appear until you sign in to Google.

A few people have inadvertently changed the position of other boats when they were trying to add / edit their boat information. Please be careful when adding or editing your boat on the map. If you have problems please send me a message in my private email on this site and I will add you boat to the map. I will need the boat name, your name (optional), hull number (optional), type of engine (optional) and a description of the location.
I tried having a bad day once but I did not like it

We lost the attachments in our website disaster.  Here's a new pic of the CSY Google Map page, with the Edit button highlighted.

Again, here's what you need to do:

3. Click the EDIT button on the left sidebar. Now you should see a little balloon like thing in the upper right corner of the map. That is a pushpin.

4. Grab the pushpin with your mouse and drag the pushpin where your boat is on the map. You can move it once you drop it.

5. Put your boat name in the title and your name and boat type in the description box associated with the pushpin.

6. Double click on the pushpin to change the color of the pushpin to match your boat type, as follows:

CSY 33 - Green
CSY 37 - Red
CSY 44 WO - Royal Blue
CSY 44 WT - Purple
CSY 44 PHK - Yellow
CSY 44 Fisherman - Aqua Blue

7. When finished, click the Done button.

Hi Soggy Geek,

I added Contessa to the CSYowners Google boats map a couple of weeks ago.  Everything went well.  I just tried to access it today but it was not available.  It says it was moved to the trash and to have the owner restore it. 

I used this the link Original posted CSY Owners Map 

But this is what I am getting instead:  CSY Owners Map  Error response

"Unavailable

This map is no longer available because it was moved to the trash. Please contact the owner to restore access."

 :o  :'(

Sorry for the delay in replying... we've been traveling and not had a lot of internet access.

I think it was Peter Roach who set up the map.  I'll contact him by email and see if he can do something about it.  I'm seeing the same thing you are.

Hi Sherry,

Thank you for passing this along to Peter Roach.  I like to resource and thought all CSY owners would appreciate it back online.

Also thank you for all of your help at the Annapolis SSCA GAM

Apparently Peter ran out of space on his Google Drive and deleted some stuff.  Apparently one of the things he deleted was the KML file that contained the locations.  He's been trying to recover it, but may not have been successful.  We may just have to start all over again--which may not be that terrible, as I doubt many people have updated their locations in the last 10 years.

Sherry, 
That sounds very reasonable.  It wouldn't take long using the power for the crowd.
Thanks for looking into it.
