This particular thread is one of the best. I love getting to see various places that members have flown.

Yes Larry, I just did the annual and had her up on the stands so thought to give them a coast while it was there for a few days to cure. It is working pretty well - the trick IMHO is to clean them well, buff them for adhesion and give them time to cure - like 3 days if possible. Also, the first time I did them I did 3 coast and the top one delaminated from the underside ones. I think 1-2 coats are suffice and it is easy to redo if needed.

Landing on beaches in Australia is not legal as far as I know - so I wouldn't even think of such things.....

Hey Reid, that is the Tasman Sea - nothing between there and New Zealand.

cheers

You should check your regs Ross. Canada and Australia have very similar regs and if itís Crown Land (or what ever you call it down under) you should be good t go.

Landed down on the St Mary irrigation reservoir. It has been a very dry summer so had to take advantage of a unique opportunity. The sand is usually cover with water. Down to 5% of its capacity.

Great Photos Doug! And looks like a fantastic year of flying too - I'm sure Scott had to really twist your arm to make you try the Mile High!
Still have fond memories of meeting up with you guys!

cheers

Really great quality photos Doug! I'll bet it wasn't done with a cell phone camera.
