Oops is definitely "old school" --an eye for an eye ! oops would have got in his kayak; paddled out to the backside of their sailboat, taken out his hand axe, and sunk their boat. All is fair in love and war ! :lol:

I think he would have built a stove out of their boat.

thanks Mags;
i'd never seen an Arbutus till i moved to BC 16 years ago. they're a strange one. they shed their bark, as you can see from the pic.

about twenty nautical miles. it has been done. paddling over to Vancouver island from the mainland is a very long,hard day of paddling in very exposed, dangerous (traffic) waters. anyone who has done it will tell you "don't bother". the ferry ride takes an hour and a half and costs 15 bucks.
the cart breaks down into smaller components that are stowed aboard, wherever they will fit. like, the wheels go in the cockpit just ahead of my feet.

Nice pics, Daren. Makes me long for the water. ;)

It would have been a one time disposable stove! :lol:

Excellent photos Daren and looks like you had the best of weather condidtions.

Alcohol and boating don't mix for most. A well placed Molotov Cocktail would have sent a cordial message :geek:
