Lobster Boat

27 June 2017
Richard
It was almost the end of the lobster season when we passed this lobster boat. Later, at the dock in Canso, we met the lobsterman, Garth Meade.

I had wanted to anchor in Canso, but there isn't really room to do so. We then went to the government dock, but it was under construction and not open.

We then went to the marina which, from a distance, seemed to be for smaller boats. It was low tide when we approached, and the marina kindly called us up on the VHF (I wasn't sure what channel they monitored, so hadn't called them) to tell us where the deepest water was. Turning slowly into the marina at about a knot, we briefly grounded, raise the centerboard higher, and proceeded in.
