Hi Mateusz

Yesterday I was at https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5191898921 in order to take photographs of the boats you mentioned.

Unfortunately there were no boats with a (visible) inscription like the one on your photo (maybe those were hidden under their rain covers), but I took some pictures anyway. I can imagine though that most of these boats don't have this kind of special inscription.

I see the following options:

1. I'll send you some of my pictures and you can use and publish them, but they really just show some boats. A scene you can find on every small marina.
2. You ask at sailcom.ch for some pictures. (They use openstreetmap.org tiles on their website, so they might be on good terms with OSM).
3. Someone keeps looking for a good opportunity to make a picture similar to the original one.

Best regards and thank you for your efforts!

I found it during cleanup of

I am writing to this mailing list as boat sharing seems especially popular
in Switzerland (  https://overpass-turbo.eu/s/14I1)

Sorry for English.
