I noticed the Kishi boat works in your profile. My first boat was a Kishi built, double-end troller built in 1939. I wonder if it is the same family. Don't imagine there were many boat builders by that name.

Yes it is, although I haven't been in years. Spent a lot of summers in the Gray Creek area.

Good idea for a thread. May give hints at where to visit in the future

One of the nicer falls we've seen so far...Lizette Falls, Oatswish Bay, near Mussel Inlet on BC's north coast;

It surprises me how many people anchor, then take off the next morning without stepping ashore. Maybe it's a holdover from our sea kayaking days, but to get a real feel for an area exploring ashore is a must.

We found clam gardens in Rescue Bay, near Klemtu. First Nations people on this coast would chuck rocks aside to level off areas on a beach which would allow higher concentrations of clams in a small area...like the seafood aisle at a supermarket.

Also, when you head back to the boat at sunset afterwards, you can take cheesy photo's of your boat...especially when forest fire smoke thickens the air.

Here's Zain (our Pyrenees Lab mix) checking out a First Nations salmon weir in Kakushdish Harbour near Shearwater & Bella Bella on BC's central coast.

People would herd salmon up against the shore, then keep them there as the tide dropped below the level of the weir...easy pickings after that!

That's the "entrance notch" to Kakushdish highlighted by the setting sun through forest fire smoke. We left the next morning at first light, near low tide, to get some miles in before the winds kicked up; a real challenge for my situational awareness abilities!

Hi Eric,

We haven't been to Monckton Inlet yet. Looking forward to doing the "Outside" Inside Passage (as we call it) one day to Kitkatla. Wee bit more exposure out there.

This summer we went to Calvert Island on BC's central coast; a real jewel.

First photo is of the anchorage at Pruth Bay on Calvert Island. There's a research institute there which allows people to tie dinghy's to their dock, and free use of a short trail to the exposed west coast.

Second photo is of the first beach you reach on the trail, taken from a side trail to an overlook. There are seven beaches in total, all linked by trails. We stayed five days and plan to stay longer next time.
