The last refueling, reprovisioning, watering, garbage disposal, laundering, restauranting, propane filling, and marine supplying before moving to the West Coast of Vancouver Island around Cape Scott. More reading, weather forecasting, and planning takes place to make the timing of our transit a reality. We will move from Port McNeill to Bull Harbour on Wednesday, May 22nd. We will make our move around Cape Scott on either Friday, May 24th or Saturday, May 25th. It all depends on the strength and direction of the winds. Our friends David and Janet on sv Faneuil will be catching up with us in the next several days. We will buddy-boat down the West Coast with them.
