Skookum is also used north of you Karen in Vancouver, Canada.

I just avoid drilling holes for screws to mount things if possible. Too permanent for me.

Yah, one of the local restaurants with a Native theme has a Skookum burger, egg and wiener etc., puts a fat burger to shame.

Skookumchuk Narrows Provincial Park - another use of this term - an worthwhile sight to take in for those travelling to BC's Sunshine Coast area.

I'm originally from New England (left in 85) so I would have called it "wicked good hook." There's some local dialect for you. Of course, if you walked too close to it, caught your shirt on it and tore your shirt, you would probably just call it "no good damned hook!" Or something more colorful.....

Very cool Charlie. I give you a thumbs up!
