I'm still refreshing my memory on how to resize my photos so that they will fit here. Things should get better as I go (with any luck.)
Picture is me about to install instruments while waiting for my setup inspection by club Safety Officer Robin Hastings.

I did a little snooping around on Google maps to see if I could locate the launch from your photo. Did I get close?
