We have thoroughly enjoyed our first few trips of the season. We have seen Gray whales on all but one of six trips and bears three times which is encouraging for this time of year. The whales that we have seen have been feeding, in areas that are on our regular route, which is especially welcome news considering there have been very few whales in our area over the last two years.
The Raincoast Maiden is close to “ready for action”. Yearly haul out, inspections, repairs and (most) mechanical work is now behind us and we’re on to the more fun jobs. A time when every inch of the boat is obsessively waxed, polished, oiled or painted.
