Too funny Sandpaper,
My dad has one just like it, Trillium's are kind of tough to come by in the US. All we can generally find are Scamps.
Have a good trip!

This is our new acquisition. Ken (the windsurfer and free-diver) has named this little RV the Landpiper!

It doesn't have leaf springs. It too has torsion suspension, AND, standing headroom.




Crystal and I are leaving on Tuesday for a 4-week excursion of Western Canada.

FreeBird, keep the forum alive in our absence. More sailing in October.


LandPiper spotted Wally World in Huntsville this morning, tried to make contact but alas crew of the LandPiper parked with the four wheelers... no space for the 18's.

Lurker's hang in there Mr.Tp will be back soon.

Nope, not the Landpiper. We are still in Manitoba tonight through Sunday. We're at Riding Mountain National Park for a couple of days, then perhaps Bird's Hill Provincial Park for a few.

Here is what we saw when we woke up Tuesday morning in Banff.



There is talk of 80mm of rain in the next day or two where we are. That should be enough to float a boat.

Take care. Lurking is welcome.

[Edit: BTW, blew a tire on the trailer in Nord Akota and had to replace the other cuz it went egg-shaped in Alberta. The trailer had been parked in a barn for 6 years, eh?]

Before Sapphire comes out of the water, I want to replace the cedar bunks on her trailer. Here is a shot of the trailer as she sits in a storage field.




This is the plastic 2x6 that I purchased from Taylor's Recycled Plastic Products near Peterborough. It's not the fancy coloured plank, but it's about 1/3 the price. It promises to machine like wood. I'll let you know if the table saw blade gums up and begins to smoke.




Note: I think that Photobucket is slowly imploding. I was not able to log on this morning to post these pictures. I had to go to Tinypic. Like anything on the cloud, what will happen to the 1500 photos I have archived if the website becomes defunct?

I had the same issue with Photobucket about 1 week ago and was unable to log on for about 5hrs during the day. Hopefully it does no go down or I will loose all my forum post pictures. What are those side support pads made out of?

Testing photobucket, only took about 15 minutes for one picture.

The season is over, back on the hard.


Looking forward to Sail Mazinaw July 08, 2017

Since when does a Sandpiper have a tandem trailer?
When it's not a Piper...

Hey, what is that? That's not a Sandpiper! Shouldn't there be orange cones around that rig? Do you need escort vehicles when towing that on the highway?

If she does come to Sail Mazinaw, she may have to anchor out and we'll use a Sandpiper as a tender to ferry her passengers, crew and stewards to and from the dock.

Check this out. This is what The Maz looks like this morning:

That looks like a pretty good sign it's time to call it for the season!
Brrrrr.
