Reader Martin Soldat was surprised to see this hot boat gassing up at a local station. Note that the careful owners took their shoes off to respect that stunning gelcoat! Martin didn’t notice whether they purchased any windshield washer fluid.

Our Photo of the Week comes from AJ Twist in Montreal who was getting away from the off-season in Cuba when he saw this wall mural of the Granma, the decrepit boat that brought Fidel, Ché and the others to begin the revolution. It’s the stuff of legend in Cuba!

We get a lot of shots in our Photo of the Week inbox but never one like this. The photo came from Jim and Maggie Smyth whose boat resides at the Thornbury Yacht Club. We have deemed it POTW of the Year. Congratulations to Jim and Maggie.

HI Andrew – It’s apparent that you’ve never had a boat moored in the salt, because there, mussels and barnacles can also be a major issue in why one’s trim tabs no longer seem to work. One of the reasons ‘Canadian Yachting’ is often considered to be ‘Toronto as the centre of the universe’ yachting.

Yes, we are once again going to the dogs, a very popular and always welcome Photo of the Week theme. These pups come our way via James Bambrick who tells us, “We boat on the Strait of Georgia out of Comox B.C. Nuggs is black; Sam is blonde.”

Hamilton, ON’s Shark two-time champ, Keven Piper, spent his fall vacation with his ILCA-6 sailor 15-year-old son heading to the J80 Worlds in Newport. Along the way, Willem illustrated the race they were heading to, and that’s our Sketch of the Week (SOTW?), this time.
