No loss of life is the main thing, property loss can be settled with the insurance claim. That is one big boat.

I'm so confused. According to my charts (CHS), Pender Harbour is up east of Texada Island, but there is no Pender Island up there. On the other hand, N and S Pender Islands are down in the Gulf Islands, but there is no Pender Harbour down there.

Where the heck did this happen?

"Cospicua" would be a more appropriate name.

Good point. How many "Penders" do you folks need up there?
BTW, wasn't Poet's Cove called Pender Harbour in the old days?

No, that would be Pender Island, not Pender Harbour.

Now, I'm headed for the beach to see if I can see Mr. Hays go by Stuart Island.

That would be Stuart Island WA not BC.

Oh, he's going to the east, headed for Friday Harbor I guess. I won't see him.

Yup, we decided to clear customs in Friday Harbor then maybe anchor somewhere in Lopez for the night to get ready to cross the Strait in the morning. I just need to get a little further west get on the correct side of the ebb.

Btw, it sounds as if there is a sailboat aground across from Keith's place there by Wallace island. Two boats are competing for the business it sounds like.

At least three - North Pender Island, South Pender, and then Pender Harbour (completely separate to the north as I recall). We're leaving on our annual charter sailing tomorrow morning and Pender/Poets Cove is on the sail plan. Would have been odd to see that super yacht resting on its props in Poets Cove.

When you are the surveyor, you get to name a few things after yourself, right?

Daniel Pender was the surveyor onboard the HMS Plumper.

BTW, Pender Harbour has fantastic outlook at the top of Mt. Daniel. I highly recommend it. Take your nitroglycerin with you, as it is quite steep though.

Just got in, no grounded boats visible. It is low tide right now, so any groundings will not be for long.

You are correct about Daniel Pender serving aboard Plumper. He also mastered the Hecate and was Commander on the Beaver.

I believe it was Captain George Henry Richards who named Pender Harbour and Daniel Point after Daniel Pender.

Captain Richards was also responsible for a lot of south coast names;
False Creek, Brocton Point, Coal Harbour, Mount Garibald and several places in Howe Sound and Jervis Inlet.

So much history on this coast that most who pass through just don't know the life and times that went into building their playground.

According to some online info, Bellissima has a displacement tonnage of 95 so Ocean Pacific in Campbell River, for one, has a Travelift of 110 MT. Whether they could handle the beam & length I don't know.

If it even stays in Canada, my guess would be Burrard Dry Dock in Vancouver.

Be interesting to watch.
Wouldn't surprise me if they just freighted it back to CA.

Maybe just fire sale it..."gee I was thinking of an upgrade anyway."

On Mitchell Is. in the North Arm, Arrow Marine has a Travellift that is plenty big enough. at 330 tons.

Just talked with Ocean Pacific. They could certainly do it and would jump at the opportunity, but think it will probably go down to Vancouver, where there are a number of capable yards as mentioned.

Yup and if it doesn't work out they can load it in trucks and bury it at Cache Creek.

The fellow with the green boathouse in Secret Cove was somehow connected to Jack Charles and he invited me to the launch of Hotei way back when.

Also wonder if Westbay could do it, they have a 200t rail into the river. Or did have(???).
Don't know about Crescent Beach or Maple Ridge any more or if either would have been big enough anyway.

Probably a charter, the captain (until he is replaced ) will oversee getting the boat repaired... It's a shame the hazards getting in and out of Pender are well marked on the charts. There are even channel markers. A person has to be alert when in the NW waters.

Interesting question. Assuming owner, guests, and captain or crew, I'd keep the number and qualifications of persons there who could actually contribute and assist. I would get everyone else away. As an owner I would have likely stayed unless I just thought I'd be more in the way, than helping.
