An amazing Seahorse Bow
A huge thanks to Chris and Julie Bullen for this wonderful report from up north in paradise. Okay not that far north, not like pearly gates north, we are talking Canada North, not that it isn’t heaven up there. You know what, I am gonna let the pics tell the story.

After much delay from some inconvenience around the world the bi annual Port Carling Boat show is back. The sun was shining and it was a perfect day for a boat show. The poster boat this year was “Caprice” a 1936 Minett -Shields of 26’. A very unusual boat by that manufacturer. She look amazing. Julie brought her boat carrying the all-important dingy to hold the ice and drinks for the folks that brought their boat. I hope you enjoy the photos of a few of the 60 boats in attendance.

Yikes, all joking aside about fenders there. MUCH NEEDED
I wonder? Is that Asbestus? I doubt it, but sure looks like the stuff one finds and.. well and if it is real asbestus is that added points? Do you need the note from your oncologist to prove it.
Slow ride! no, like real slow ride. Slower.. No, slower.
Incase you missed the huge side of the building
