2016 Getting Ready In April

We cast off from our winter home in Victoria Harbour on May 01, hard to believe how fast the winter goes. Under calm seas we spent a few days in the Gulf Islands before motoring into Genoa Bay to start our spring refit. With the help of our long time friend and shipwright Gord Nelson we began a water tight bulkhead project that Transport Canada has requested for our vessel. With that project well underway we proceeded to Maple Bay where Phil at Cove Yachts was there once again to haul us out for paint , zincs and our annual inspection. Everything looked great and after some great visits with friends in the area we pointed the Thunder north to begin our 11th season.IMG_1159IMG_1169
