    I thought there would already be a thread for this but couldn’t find one. So please merge admin if there is ;)

    In response to Dave H enquiry on a bottle opener the other day I thought I’d show you the rest of the collection. We started with a few we found in a box at a swap meet and it sorta grew o_O. So we started displaying them around the kitchen door. So now we can use which every takes our fancy - close to the fridge and makes a good display.

    Mmmmm.....that’s not as easy as first thought.....
    I have ‘em on walls, in racks on the deck, in the (redundant) boy’s cubby, under the house, in the kombi etc.
    Funny, didn’t start as a collection.....Sue just redefined the term, “my ‘boards”........:rolleyes:

    @Quombi Have you done research on the history of bottle openers on some of the ones you have. Like other hobbies or collecting researching you interest is just as interesting as the collection.

    Surfboard fins.
    No logic to it.
    No reason.

    And looking at that, skateboards.

    They are practical, so don't count in collecting.
    And the one on the ground at the front is a prone board - new area of pain I need to persue more, and in the rack above is a windsurf board.
    The rest are SUP..
