Vancouver Boat Show

We set-up at the Marine Authors booth during the Vancouver International Boat Show 21-25 January. Our four books were very well received and by noon of the final day we had sold-out of "Carefree on the European Canals" and were down to short stacks of the other titles.

I did three presentations in the educational seminar series, one on our adventures to Cape Horn and two on the European canals. We are chomping at the bit to get back to Zonder Zorg in Auxonne.


  1. The system was all about screwed-down elements. The replica watches uk original Rolex Oyster watch was innovative because the case back, bezel, and crown were all screwed-down. The fluted bezel was an important part of replica watches uk this because Rolex developed special tools which allowed them to tightly seal up the cases..A further development that helped increase the safety of the movements was in the later Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch. In 1931 Rolex replica watches developed a module to fit over their movements that offered automatic winding, and thus the "Oyster Perpetual" was born. This new term joined Rolex Oyster and today is on the dial of all Rolex watches. This is good to know in case you've replica watches uk ever wondered why "Oyster Perpetual" is on the dial of every Rolex watch sold these days. Automatic winding was a benefit to water resistance and other durability matters because the wearer did not have to unscrew the crown and replica watches uk wind the watch manually, thus opening up a small area of the case.
