Yah, the rapids are fun to watch but the cinnamon buns nearby, to die for, (or drive 100 miles or so and take a ferry to get to) are truly skookum

Very cool Charlie. I give you a thumbs up!
You can't get too close to these hooks, which is why I had to make them since I couldn't find anything that would work off the shelf without drilling into the bathroom wood and fiberglass doorframe. Final version has 1 1/4 inch diameter hook with a bit of added curve on the end for springiness should I cram a coat into it. Interior side is a "haircell" texture for a better grip. Of course wifey now wants a few in the shower.............

I can agree with her on that. We prefer to hang wet rain coats in the bathroom.

AHAH! A reason to order a B model rather than an A. (unless, of course, you live in rainless So.Cal.)

Those ARE nice hooks. Methinks I'll be acquiring some next year when we get our 17A.

Ours get left outside under the awning, unless we need the heat to dry them out.

That's where the suction hooks come in handy.

I hang my wet coat in the bathroom too. Usually if it's raining, it's also windy.. too windy to have the awning out. And there's no way I'm going to hang a wet coat.. or anything else wet, against the cabinetry.

Interesting how weather works in different areas. For the most part around here, when it rains it is not very windy at all. Sometimes a wind comes in pushing the rainstorm in, then usually abates. Not always though, I have seen a couple windy rainstorms over the years.

I think I have had to retract my awning 3 times in the past 6 years, twice in Osoyoos.
