I will endeavour to get some decent shots this spring. I haven't taken anything worth showing yet.

How about some shots of the hammock, or is it still too cold to fiddle with it?

I haven't made any progress on the hammock yet, been too busy playing in the snow. :D I hung it up over xmas and it is longer than I was expecting, I will get back on it shortly.

I really can't see what all the fuss was about! :?
There's nothing more relaxing than those tramps. Now if I could just reach that mainsheet.:wink:

Stringy, is that the time you were over in Italy demonstrating the tramps to the local dealers? No doubt the picture was confiscated only because Hobie hadn't officially introduced the tramps yet and didn't want any early peepers. :shock:

BTW, nice looking AI. :mrgreen:

Great Photos!

Slaughter, I had to wipe my glasses off after viewing your photo.
Reconlon, Fly Away!
Skymax, were you in your plane hovering above while taking a photo of someone else in your AI :shock: :) How'd you manouver your camera to stay up there?
okzOOK, just looking at that sunset makes my heart slow down.
Stringy, they say its all in the pose :shock:

I think you all deserve a rudder pin, and a TI to split between the 5 of you :lol:

okzook SOLITUDE has serenity, in the middle of Sydney but so far away from the bustle.
Is that Capt Cook Bridge?

Slaughter has set a new standard, but we want more, MORE!

For the Seagull-eye view I had a hi-tec Camera, "iMount", installed on top of the mast.
(Well,..actually it was a conglomeration of Zip Ties, sticky-back Velcro and a hacked Tupperware container cobbled after several beers= :idea: ).

Both top shots hollgi. I stand to be corrected but I think you have just equalled the record of 4 AI's in the one photo.

Oh bugger, these seriously good shots hurt Three ways..

1. They feature the rare Dune AI, (with Grey Sail!) lust, lust..
2. The Fishing Gear will excite the imaginations of the hopeful.
3. (Worst of all), They are taken by a bloody Pommy!
