It’s been a while since Boat Guide was updated, but the trailer boat show this weekend has inspired a few updates to the site. First of…
Australian Boat Guide version 2!January 26, 2015
The initial website was looking a little clunky and wasn’t letting me do what I wanted to do in an elegant way, so I’ve taken the leap and re-designed the entire site.
My new theme looks a lot nicer than the other site, and hopefully the cleaner design will make the site much more easy to use than before.
As before, we have the two key features of the site up and running – the boat ramp maps which show the location of boat ramps, and, as soon as I get the chance to visit each one – photos and useful information about it. The dealer directory is also new, and is basically designed to just let you find your nearby boat dealers. Nothing more than that.
The main thing I like about the new design of the site is it can combine both a website and blog in one package. This will let me post when new content is added – as well as include it in the site.
All of the Sydney Boatramps I’ve visited have now been moved over to the new site. I have also added ramps in Darwin and South Australia, as well as the boat dealer directory.
Some of the maps are not fully functional yet, and there is still a lot of work to do – but it’s coming together nicely. Let me know what you think.
