Those Californians sound a bit like Queenslanders. Even in weather like now, where we are having what even I, (from NZ, where we had real winters), would call cold, many Queenslanders get round in really inappropriate skimpy clothing, and yet don't seem to be bothered by it, (where you would expect the opposite). I think it's because they seem to be able to warm themselves by the simple belief, "it never gets cold here in Queensland - period..!"

No worries, Mark. People east of the Rockies think we get around out here in covered wagons pulled by a pair of oxen (would that be considered a twin-engine Conestoga?)

They don't get the socks-and-sandals PNW thing either.

Photo is our neighbor's 2015 Ford Northwest Edition F-250, called the F-250 XLT-OX. Comes fully loaded with a full-length sunroof and everything; the only option is the steering stick.

Guess not....cause it so totally makes no sense..although I've worn outfits that didn't either so we're even. You must admit it looks silly.
For the last sixty years, you'd most likely see me in jeans and T-shirt. The Pierce boys, era mid-1950s: brother Kelvin (passed), cousin Jeff (golfer), yours truly, cousin Tim (passed), cousin Mike (Texas attorney).

I wear shorts perhaps 10-11 months per year, 5 of those months include a sweatshirt at least in the evening.

I read it here, trawler is a term applied to non-descript slow vessels with poor heritage but aggressively marketed. (loose credit to Marin)

A Manatee designed and built by KK is no trawler, it has a pedigree. Or so say the KK aficionados.

What pedigree is that?

Nautical designer Buehler says the Coot is based on workboats.
