Northward Bound 2011

April 30th, 2011
Northward Bound! After leaving Victoria Harbour behind we motored to Genoa Bay for our annual sand, paint and fix session which has become a ritual for us. We would spend three weeks getting the Thunder Ship Shape for the coming season. A new hard top for the rear, new toilets, shower redo in the front and as much painting as the weather will permit.

Sunny and calm as we cast off from Genoa Bay, where does the time go!!

The Boat is running great and we had a busy stay in the Bay where several renos were completed on the boat. New shower in the guest quarters as well as a new electric head in the Captains quarters. Most noticeable for our guest will be the new aluminum hard top over the rear deck. This will help keep the rain off on those rare days where the sun is not out on the north coast. We had a nice transit through Dodd’s narrows and cruised into Nanaimo Harbour at 4 pm. Time for a walk around town, some sushi and off to bed in preparation for the run up Georgia Straight and on to Comox.
