Preparing the text for your site is easy and you can use your word processor or text editor.

Step 1 – Text for your site

Prepare the text you would like on your site. Look at our Demo website and type up the initial information you would like placed on your website. For ease of formatting you could for example use a word document for each page of the website. Be sure to place headings where you want them, and set up your paragraphs etc. the way you would like to see them on the site.

Step 2 – Photo’s for your site

Now select the photo’s you want on each page and in the banner at the top of the website (the banner photo will be at the top of each page, like the waves crashing on our demo site).

If you have digital photo’s already then just select the ones you want and send them to us via an email attachment. Please note that there may well be a limit on the size of the emails you can send. If you have problems then either send each photo in a different email and/or reduce the size of the photo if you are able to.

If you have problems just let us know and we will help.

If you do not have digital photo’s then you can take your negatives to a photo shop and have them scanned and put onto a CD. If you have lost the negatives but have the photo, the photo shop can scan them to a CD.  You can then follow the email instructions above.

Be sure to label the photo’s so that we know where you want them in the website.

Step 3 – Send us your text and photo’s

Once you’ve got the text and photo’s ready send them to us at the special email address journalupdate@pacificnorthwestboating.com . Please be sure your yacht name is in the title of all email communications. Wait until we send you an email confirmation that all is received OK and that we have enough information to proceed.  This means that we can confirm everything prior to you committing to a payment. Then you come back into this page (a link will be provided in the confirmation email) and proceed from Step 4 below.

Step 4 – Decide which option you would like and make your payment

(you can upgrade or downgrade to another option whenever you like).

We use the secure online payment system provided by PayPal.
You are asked to register with PayPal for security and future payments.
You have full control over your PayPal payments.

You will be sent electronic confirmation of all transactions.
