Re: Nautical Oddities

Maybe cruisers should be adopting this for their folding bikes? Seems like boomless would be a whole lot smarter though, think of the results of a Chinese gybe here!

The first photo is of an old dive sled from the 60's & 70's. we used them up on the Great Lakes looking for artifacts on the lake bottom. You would be in full scuba gear and when you spotted something on the bottom you could just roll off into the water.

Re: Nautical Oddities

J-L Etienne has a strong track record.

I don't know who "Dr Martini" is, but I wonder if the good Doctor had been imbibing eponymously prior to interviewing his or her keyboard to come up with something not too dissimilar to drivel.
