Heading Home

After an unexpected delay we finally left Victoria harbour yesterday morning to make the journey up the West coast. There are MANY waves to cross along the way but luckily the weather was (mostly) in our favour. The Raincoast Maiden arrived in Ucluelet this afternoon, safe and sound. We’re thrilled to be back! Our tours will start on May 4th.

Getting the Raincoast Maiden shipshape!

Some days we do wish our boat was smaller. The hull seems HUGE at times like this when every square inch, above and below the water line, demands attention!

No Lazy Off Season For Us

So … do we get to just sit around and relax all winter long? No, not exactly.

Right now the salon of the Raincoast Maiden has been transformed into a work zone as we’re oiling, wetsanding, painting, cleaning, polishing ….oh, and I see Alan is replacing a light in the hall. 

It is not all work though as we always do manage to escape for a while.
