trying to get cell coverage to call her Dad for his birthday. "Can you hear me now?"....NO!

Oysters, Clams and Beer

Catch of the day in the Copeland Islands


Trish on the fordeck watching for logs while BJ watched the radar. Thick fog is all we saw in Johnstone Strait from Port Harvey to Alert Bay. Better than the bolt lightening the day before!

Out of the Fog

Trish passing Alert Bay on the way to Port Hardy, glad to be out of the fog!

Crab Trap Surprise

The Daily Planet in Port Harvey, Wes caught a dog fish in his crab trap!

Daily Planet

Cape Scott

Trish about 10 miles off Cape Scott with a nice breeze out of the NW which built over the next couple days to 40 knots


BJ at the helm while he and Nelle have surfing lessons down the west coast of Vancouver Island. Lots of control and easy helm with just the staysail at 8+knots.

Building Seas

The seas building as we headed out of Tahisis Inlet, jut before the camera went away as the crew was no longer interested in anything but trying to not puke as the winds and seas built.
