Circumnavigating Vancouver Island 2024

Back in 2003, we circumnavigated Vancouver Island, capturing wonderful memories. Now in 2024 we hope to re-visit this large island, and create some new memories!

While staying at the Nanaimo Yacht Club, we walked ashore to the local marine exchange to pickup LED lights for our Tricolor and Anchor lights. In addition we picked up a few fishing lures to try at our next opportunity. Finding our supply of TP, Kleenex, and paper towels at a low ebb, we scrambled to reprovision on key items. We took in the Harbor's fish & chips for lunch. And then while Sue did laundry, George tackled a problem with our windlass. Thinking the problem was corrosion, I cleaned up the wire contacts. I ended up replacing the Control Switch Box, and a failing down button on the deck. DC voltage at the windlass motor was a respectable 13.3V. But I'm still having 'no joy'. So we plan on getting help in Campbell River.
