Bee..

Whats with all of the other pictures included with the picture of the boat you are showing.

NO idea? I only see the four from this post, and I have to "click" on each one to see them. Do you want me to delet the pictures of the boat and see if the others go away?

Bee......

The pictures are OK.
I was curious to why you were using that site and if you knew they were posting those other pictures.
Free site that was mentioned by another member after the Photobucket betrayal. The pictures do not show on my computer when I link to them.. I will search for another way to post my pictures.

Bee,
I used postimage last time I posted pictures, no ladies looking for men then. . my pics came straight up in the post, no clicking a link. I may try it and see what happens However last week I uploaded some photos and notice one of these "advertisements" popped up.

G'day, JD. Nice looking boat. Did you bob off the ends for a length/space restriction? Is the boat for sliding into fishy corners of a bayou? Tell us more about it?
Nothing has been bobbed off.:confused: Some boats like canoes and pirogues have had points added to their ends, but a chaland don't need all them fancy lines.:rolleyes::)
I actually don't know if it can be certified as an authentic chaland, but boat types and describtions are subjective.

It is my effort to improve on the little punt I built. That little boat can work in certin cituations but not too well for my usage.

New to me also. At the Bayou Teche Boat Show a local attendee said my punt looked like a boat used for crossing the bayou and back again. Researching for more information about boats used for that purpose is when I found the name. Chaland boats have several descriptions, usually determined by their location and/or primary usage.
I don't expect it to replace my 14' pirogue but I hope the changes have improved it over the punt.
