Paul: I think it would take me years to recover psychologically from a major roll like that and I'd be behaving like a sissy any time I got near to any similar circumstances. :?

Apparently Erik is a larger legend than I even first imagined. In the Wiki story I linked he has apparently been immortalized in James Bond books in which he is teaching James Bond how to drive :o

ImageImage

For SAAB trivia, I was completely unaware that Saabs had made it into any James Bond books. I suppose it makes sense, since SAAB invented the ejection seat :wink:

Now if we could just get Bond to use a folding kayak, -but then I suppose it would need to self assemble at the touch of a button :?

Hi Kaptain,

Those discs are hatches. They are 13.5cm in diameter, one in the bow and one in the stern. I know because I'm investigating these Grand Raids myself!

You'll notice the stern holds a square looking bucket. What do you think this is for? On the Nautiraid website the photo of its 'military' kayak has the same 'bucket.'

These kayaks also have heavy gauge D rings fore and aft of the cockpit for lifting and dropping out of helicopters and what not.

Paul

I love this thread, but I'm just doing a little house keeping, trying to keep the 4x4 thread about vehicles :)

Great work - keeping the thread alive and pointed firmly at the issues of our favorite vehicles.

Luckily I havent yet figured out how to attach images – or we´d really be in trouble. Thanks for the great Saab anecdotes, I enjoyed a few moments in your time machine. Even though these swedish rigs weren´t among the fastest things I strapped myself into – they remain amongs the most memorable.

On the topic of Land Rovers – for us, there is a natural chemistry in the relationship – Land Rover / Klepper. Two timeless, tested and proven designs. Full of character and capable far beyond their humble looks. Much like my Hasseblad and Kitchen Aide.

Isn´t it great that while most things around us seem to change at the speed of light – there are a few ikons that just keep on shining. Don´t let anybody tell you otherwise.


Evening Greetings to You All, from Denmark,

Morten Bibow

 Post subject: Some MG Pictures
PostPosted: Sun Oct 22, 2006 9:56 pm 
The first two pictures show cars of the MG T-Series. Our family had one that my mother drove when my brother and I were young, and that Mom kept until she remarried.

Image

Note the steel wheels with holes surrounding the central hubcap, and the doors that open "backwards."

Image

I thought I was seeing a coupe version of one of these cars, an MG of the Y-Series, I think, in the photo with the young couple and folding boat, posted above.

Image

May all your faltbootkarten be sturdy, functional, and decorative -

C.

And, harking back to page 1 of this thread, I'm happy to say I just got a car. An 88 Mercedes with AWD :-)

I've already ordered the special "feet" to attach my Thule crossbars to the factory roof rack.

I like to belive that I have got a close to perfect "kayaking utility vehicle"!

About a year ago I decided to get my hands on a Volvo C303/Tgb11.
(Sorry but you will have to click the link to behold it, because I don't know how to upload pictures to my post...)

It's an ex Swedish army jeep who laughs in the face of any Humwee or Landrover when it comes to loading space and cross country ability.
But what I like most about it is that I can fit the fore and aft frame of my Klepper 490 assembled next to each other in the back, which I found to be a great relief when you want to get paddling first thing in the morning after driving to a new place the night before.
Hell, I can easely sleep in there as well, on one of the collapsable gurneys you can hang from the roof!

It's a proper fuel guzzler though, but I don't get to use it all that much anyway so I can live with that.
