Davidson, Holland and Perry, the Three Amigos

Laurie Davidson, designer of America;s Cup fame, contacted me about three weeks ago and said he would be passing trough my area ad could we get together. I love Laurie and we have been friends for a long time so of course I said yes. Then it occurred to me that Ron Holland, another Kiwi designer of renown, had just moved to Vancouver. He might like to join us. He was most excited at the prospect. I arranged a steak BBQ lunch and we visited, ate and drank our way through the afternoon. What did we talk about? Boats of course. Laurie is almost 90. Ron is 69 and I am 70. I'm not sure we will get another chance to get together.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
