Thanks for that Dan. That may be a problem as we're on a ferry to Victoria for a day excursion to the gardens, yeah I know but it's one of those things married guys do, and then a tour of the town (city). I probably have a better chance when we get to Vancouver but looking at that it's a good drive to the nearest Lee valley Tools from the . Guess I'll need to check when we get there. Looks like maybe 25 minutes, less if you know what you're doing....Have to see what the schedule looks like as I don't think we sail till the afternoon headed to Ketchikan. I mean I am going to the gardens, that has to be worth something right?

If I know what day you depart on the cruise and which ship, I'll go down to the beach and wave!

On the screen itself, at the link, putting the mouse on any indicated vessel brings up info about it. Neat, eh?

Victoria - Lee Valley Tools
If he's sailing from the Convention Center downtown it might still be quicker to go to the Victoria store than the one on SE Marine unless he's taking the Tsawwassen Ferry over to the Island.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Maybe they're on a tour bus?
"Driver; could you swing by Lee Valley Tools, please?"

You think they might? Of course I'm on a tour bus. I have no idea where anything is in that part of the country. I could ask my driver from the airport to the hotel to make a quick stop but I have a couple of feelings about that and none fair well for me. Both involve my lovely bride. 1st there's no such thing as a "quick stop" at any woodworking store for me and secondly I don't expect my better halve to be "feeling" a stop at anything short of the hotel room and maybe the bar. Probably need a few hours "settling" before mentioning anything about going out somewhere to look at some tools. We get along fabulously but there is pushing your luck..........and then downright stupidity. I guess I could claim a senior moment. Or just plain bad judgment.
