Yep, apres beers and a bbq consumed in true Canuck fashion.

Thanks for helping with the pic Michael.

Another pic of who we call 'miserable' Dave after the launch.. [wrench.gif]

What was interesting is that with all the water action going on that afternoon, this cruise got the most folks lined up along the shore to watch this cruise and cheer miserable Dave onward... :arrow:
