Got my Kay Dime Les Paul back recently which was my tribute to Sugar Ray guitar meister Rodney Shepherd from his heavy riffing days. It is Canadian 10 cent pieces as the exchange rate was better for me at the time (13 years ago!)

The sailboat's name was "Bluenose", a Schooner.

Thank you for the history lesson I know you have a dollar coin that known as a looney after the bird that is on it. Round these parts the only bluenoses we have are Everton supporters!
