    Used up another of my Hot Foot 20s lives

    I think so. But the '20s were known for that.

    What’s your favorite anchorage’s ( pic’s)

    Basically built by members. Lots of hands-on labour and a lot of real engineers. A very "can do" attitude. Not the idle rich or anything. It was a homestead/retirement home and we have 40 acres to play with including an old apple orchard. Trials all over you can get lost for hours.

    What’s your favorite anchorage’s ( pic’s)

    Not so much and anchorage so much but our outstation in Elliott Bay, Gambier Is. BC. No roads to speak of. No running water or electricity except a genset or solar. I had a Stay-vacation there. 10 days straight and likely bugger off from Tuesday until the following weekend. We seem to be on a cusp of an "indigenous summer" here. It will get up to the mid to hi 20's c. (about 80f).

    It's Sidney BC, not Sydney BTW.

    Home town webcam?

    http://www.vancam.ca/index.html Several cams in the region. Like Whistler etc. One of our club outstations have a webcam to see if it's too busy because of Covid but it's members-only on the club website .

    Express 30

    Their not. A Canadian build. We had a 35 at our club. A decent build. It was raced a bit but never much in the way of traction on the marketplace. And yes, Goman - not Godan.

    Tequilla

    Often my happy hour drink is tequila & tonic. Rather than Vodka/Gin & tonic. Great on a hot day.

    Swiftsure 86 - Sorcery and others

    I'm not sure what I was on in '86 but my Stamps Landing pub buddies were on Sorcery. Big Pete, Tomo and Treevor. I'm still in contact Trevor via Wastebook so I'll send him the vid if he hasn't seen it before. Poncho - what were you on? I'm sure you where there.

    Swiftsure 86 - Sorcery and others

    Yup...the wicked witch of the ditch. Pretty scary.

    Trucking a 40.7

    Depends where are you going I suppose. We did a SC50 in Seattle and took it to Texas. Picked up a X-119 bound to San Diego. Launched there and picked up a Andrews 56 straight up I-5 to Seatte back again; on the same truck. It was a deal of course as we set up that way. Yes, there where over-width charges of course but all keel on. We used Dudleys as they were paying attention but the company is gone into retirement.

    Sunset pictures

    No worries Snags. We have such a beautiful setting for our club and our outstations so it makes it easy(ier) to do that. I don't do "snapshots" - ever but some of my best shots are looking out the club bar windows!
