To A New Paradigm With FPB

FPB 64 High Res Slide Show

This is a test of a new photograph server. It should allow us to post much higher resolution photographs. We are  starting with a set of FPB 64 photos. You can manually control the photos or have them play as a slide show. There is also an option for full screen viewing. Mousing over the symbols at the bottom will describe their functions. The bottom right symbol takes you to full screen. Note: for those of you with PCs hitting the “F” key will take you to full screen. Let us know how it works on your end. Note for IPhone users: as this is “Flash” based content it will not play on your IPhone. However, the same material is available on our older server where you can download it to your IPhone.

    Loved the new slideshow. It took about 2 to 3 seconds to load each pic on the full screen using the manual button. But cruising the pics is a leisure/pleasure activity and its worth a short wait for the high res pics. Thanks for keeping the dream alive by sharing these. Cheers, Steve (wannabe FPB owner, in the next life maybe!)

    Hi-res images came through 1 sec per frame with Comcast cable in California. Beautiful. Does the Avatar have the storm covers over the windows? I see an inventory of tools in the engineroom. Has someone taken the time to verify fit with all fasteners aboard? What a fantastic ship. (I refuse to call this beauty a yacht.) I hope the owners will begin some blog, perhaps attached to your site, so that we may follow their adventures. Smooth seas. -B.

    Thanks Bill: The toolset is extensive, running from the smaller sizes up to 1.25″/32mm, in both wrenches and sockets, SAE and Metric, as required. There are storm shutters for each size of window, although with 3/4″/19mm glass the need is remote.
