Paikea's new boat
« on: September 14, 2020, 05:48:33 pm »
A couple of pics of my new Stessl 460 XTreme. Had the decals put on this afternoon. Will add some more pics when I work out how to stop my iPhone taking videos instead of pics. It seems to do that in the middle of trying to get a series of still pics. Must keep my fingers out of the way of that button. Or get my grandson to take them for me!
Cheers

PS; to those who wonder where the name came from. It stems from the legend of a young Maori princess who rode a whale to prove to the Chief, her father, that in the absence of a male heir she was equal to male descendants of the Chief  who could become Chief if they rode a whale to prove their courage. There was a great movie made of the story.

I also liked the short, easy to recognise name in radio calls as well as spelling it out as; Papa, Alpha, India, Kilo, Echo, Alpha.
