    I could see it now....

        I always keep a fine bottle of scotch on board for "medicinal purposes". It helps to have one every so often, especially as a night cap. Mr Smee thinks he always has medicinal needs, eh Dave?

          I think a cruise photo is a fine idea. I can see a formation led by the GPSki, followed by an assortment of 16's. 17's, 19's, 21's and so on up to 28's. Parade right by my dock and follow up with a pizza party in the park. There is a launch ramp about a mile away for your convenience. Guarantee nice weather. Bottle of Scotch awarded for the longest tow.

          Just returned from my annual drive to Galice, Oregon and on to Seattle and return. It gets longer every year and towing a 28 that far is rapidly moving down my list of things I want to do.
          P.S. Wilburrrr ........I think you have a winner!
          Binford .........looks like your photographer is blowing bubble gum over the camera.
          The cruise liner QE2 moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel fuel that it burns.

            Maybe next year I can show up with a real boat.

              A cruise sounds like a great idea, flying V formation of course

                Here's an idea for you Puget Sounders. Gather up a bunch of GP addicts and get into the opening day boat parade from Lake Union, through the Montlake Cut into Lake Washington. Would be a great display of the GlasPly brand and a great party to boot. I believe the date is in early May. I would be available to fly in as the official GP photographer, providing I can get a ride.

                  Not a bad idea. But that event is such a zoo. Second only to SeaFair!

                    Plan B would be to go early enough (maybe night before) to tie up to the log boom and be a viewer rather than a viewee. We did that years ago when my daughter was an oar motor in a Husky shell. Big party on the log boom but at least everyone is tied up. The real fun starts when the parade is over and the mad dash for somewhere begins.
                    Plan C would be to watch it on the evening news.
