EagleMy husband and I have a 30 foot Catalina we keep in Nanaimo.  

This past October we drove to Telegraph Cove with friends and spent a day of wonder cruising the area as part of a fundraiser for MERS (Marine Education and Research Society).  We were graced with the presence of humpback whales, sea lions, and eagles on a warm sunny day.

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?
