Hello from Lavonia GA!

#1 Post by mwmhartwell » Fri Apr 16, 2021 2:13 pm

Hi all, I’m a new member & fairly new to boating as well. We live on Lake Hartwell and own a recently purchased ‘16 Avalon LSZ with an express middle toon. Before the Avalon we owned an ‘04 model Bennington pontoon for just shy of 2 years. That’s it for now, just wanted to reach out, say howdy & I hope y’all have an excellent weekend!

Thanks! I will post pics as soon as I figure out how to downsize (pls hang in there a bit as I’m not the most tech savvy person) so they can be uploaded :)

Welcome to the forum. If you're fairly new to pontoon life, then you're in the right place. These boys know all there is to know about pontoons. Good group of people. Looking forward to seeing some pics of your toon.

Thanks Roland, I’m still trying to figure out the resizing of pics & sometimes wonder if all the beer I drank as a youngster is hampering my progress. I’m trying though so we’ll see! Thanks again & I hope everyone enjoys their Saturday!

Thank you, I’m looking forward to getting to know y’all & learn a thing or two. Sorry to toss a non boat question at y’all so soon into my being here but how do you resize pics to be able to attach them to a post? All my attempts are met with a “file is too large” message. Perhaps it’s because I’m trying to do it using an iPad versus a PC? Like I pointed out earlier, I’m semi dangerous when it comes to “tech”. Thanks in advance for any help y’all might be able to provide & good night!

Well just about everyone has their own way of resizing. Personally I just " open " the pic I want to post using my " paint " program, and then click on resize... it will give you an option on how much you want to increase or decrease the size of the picture.. not sure what the size limits on the pontoon forum board are, but normally when I reduce my pics in paint by 50% or more, they'll load on the pontoon forum. maybe someone else on here can give you the exact specifications on file size limitations. You should have the paint program on you computer.
