For our last Photo of the Week in 2017, I have picked some nice shots we received – one from the east coast and a couple from the west. The notes that come with them sum it up the whole POTW idea beautifully.

Thanks to everyone who sent along shots in 2017.

Hi from Comox Vancouver Island.

I have a Hunter 31 and am constantly taking high quality pics of boats from mine, so have a lot to choose from!

To start here is one I took from my boat in the marina yesterday, Oct 25.

Comox Valley Marina.

This one (below) was taken off Tree Island on the north end of Denman Island, Vancouver Island.

Taken in September this year by me.

Cheers

Not only should this be your required reading, but the book is loaded with scrumptious Caribbean recipes that are a must-try.

Leader 9.0

Leader 9.0By Andy Adams

In the case of baking a cake, Betty Crocker and Julia Child both start off with the same eggs, sugar and flour, but the results can be very different.

Ask Andrew – How to hire a boat repair contractor

hiring a contractorBy Andrew McDonald

A recent conversation with a fellow contractor got me thinking: With all of the information out there, including: Websites showing repairs, YouTube tutorials, Instagram pages and snapchat streams – let alone books, magazines, service manuals, and years of practical experience – how does a boat owner know which method(s) are ‘right’, who to trust, and who to hire to do the job? In short: How do you find and select a contractor?

Unfortunately, most people are forced to hire a contractor due to a circumstance where something has broken or failed, or the task...
