    Are we sailing yet!(I think)

    If you like to be nearer the water or better still on the water & can`t afford to have sailing boat and a caravan then take a look at this little beauty click link below. First link being an up to date version of the 2ND link from early 50`s

    Like it. Seems such an obvious, practical idea - am surprised not to see them in popular use!

    I find the 1950's clip especially amusing - the days when men did all the clever technical stuff and women wore those net waist petticoats when out on a boat! Hmm. Like in the Girls/ Annual cookbook that I still have - boys/men sat at the table waiting for the girls / ladies to serve them.

    OK. Little rant over!

    Thanks for posting this.
    Carpe diem! :)

      The 1950s clip was priceless - very proper. A proper car (any colour you like so long as it's black) and how good to see gentlemen sporting a proper trouser; enough material in each leg to make a decent size awning.

      Jolly good show.

        1950s clip

        What sort of car was it?

        It reminded me of the Morris 25 that we had in the early 1950s, complete with a blind for the back window, little orange arms for indicators, a running board, a little hatch in the roof that slid back (as a child, I used to stand with my head peeping out as Daddy drove along!), oh and of course the buckets for the leaking roof. I think our record number of passengers for this big old car was 7 wriggling children, some perched on a plank set on bricks behind the front seats! No seat belts, of course. Wouldn't be allowed nowadays.
        Carpe diem! :)

          I don't think it was a Morris but I could be (probably am) wrong. Maybe a Standard...?

          Anyway, the caravan can be towed by a car of "8 horse-power" the voice over said. I think these days, you'd get that much power from a petrol-mower...

          Running boards that rotted and fell off, sun-roofs that leaked, 6v headlamps, orange "trafficators" that hardly ever worked (and when they did, they got snapped off), dodgy windscreen-wipers, non-functioning heaters - aahh, the golden days of motoring...
