    Ukes! Now the SSS is getting pretty classy.

    It does take long after looking at the Moore 24 'galley' to know this a preferred group to raft up with (and eat better).

    I happened upon this large tri at Marina Bay. Seems it may be IDEC or one of its iterations. The size comparison to other largest boats in Marina is amazing.
