Never had a suit made in Hong Kong but did pick up some nice jewelry for the wife and some stereo equipment. Spent most of my time there in the China Fleet Club and other bars! Young-stupid-and quite often drunk!

The bar girls here get extra dolled up when they know the aircraft carriers are coming in: I guess some things stay the same, no matter how much the rest changes. Cool Lots of guys get left behind here because they end up having too much fun!

They almost sold the Jumbo to a group of buyers from the Philippines a few years ago, but they decided to keep it in HK. There's a pretty nice European/Western bar/restaurant in one of the outdoor areas on the boat now: would be a good place to do some smoking!

As for the jacket: I think I saw one of the mamasans wearing it last week. I was just walking through the area of course. They looked a little worse for wear (both the jacket and the mamasan). lol

Glad the Jumbo is still there... that was my first introduction to squid... I had a few beers already so it didn't phase me, a couple of the guys couldn't eat it...

And you should of seen that mamasan back in '80, she wasn't half bad. Laughing

Funnily enough squid's never bothered me: it's the fertilized duck eggs that took me a while to get down. lol

'80 was the year I was born! I bet those ladies have some stories...

I thought so too, and now I eat them all the time. Smile

Like your salvaging and using of old stems on the pipes you have made. Nicely done sir. Very Happy

Thanks! I started by using complete stems from Grabows and others. Some I've used vulcanite blanks and added the Grabow fitting to them. When I get the tools I want, I plan to start hand cutting them. I've done one,but ruined it when I took it to the buffer!Now I gotta make another when I can get some rod stock.
