It’s all over but paying off the credit card bills. We’re talking, of course, about the Strictly Sail Pacific boat show, which concluded yesterday and appears to have been a huge success.

For devotees of Latitude 38 magazine, one of the high points of the show was sipping suds and swapping tales at our annual booth party last Friday evening. In attendance were many veterans of the Baja Ha-Ha, Pacific Puddle Jump and Delta Doo Dah rallies, as well as many who hope to eventually follow in their wake.

Hundreds of show-goers dropped by the Latitude booth on Friday to grab a free brewski and tell some tall tales.
