Gulf Islands 2012

While a far cry from Eric's dramatic trip down the Inside Passage, here is a scattering of shots from our just-concluded two-week trip in the Gulf Islands in BC.

The titles on the shots when the thumbnails are selected are self-explanatory.

The little 1960s GB32 is unique in that according to the owners, who were very knowledgeable, the hull is constructed of teak planks, not the mahogany planks that were standard for wood GBs. They speculated that either a buyer specified teak planks, or more likely the yard simply ran out of mahogany planks when it was time to construct this hull so used teak planks instead.

We saw the gray-hulled fishing boat being restored at Silva Bay last year so it was nice to see it completed.

Some additional photos from our trip.

The gaff-rigged Seeker of Truth was at Telegraph Harbor. Wonderful wicker chairs in the cockpit.

We do not normally allow guests on the boat but this couple is one of a handful of exceptions. For many years they have taken a 30' Newport sloop throughout all the inside waters between the San Juan Islands and north of Juneau, Alaska.

Was sorting through our photos this morning and came across these two that I took during our first day's run from Bellingham to Ganges. Didn't notice the name at the time but I'm assuming this must be Carl's Delfin as there can't be that many boats with that name around.
