You could be right.* It was mostly a dream-like, mystical*experience.

Here's the only photo I have on this computer of the front end of a recreational narrowboat.* You'll have to mask around my friend up front and Bess, the Border Collie.* And you'll need to retain doors in the front--- it's the only way in and out of the forward half of the boat.

Sorry Marin.* Carried away by a few great days in the middle of our usual rain, overcast, foggy cold miserable climate.* I am writing this from Saltspring, in the drizzle and low ceiling.* the picture above is of one of the best days here.* Today is too dim for photography.

Your idea of a perfect Anchorage?

Here is a perfect anchorage. Bottleneck Inlet on the NE side of Finlayson Channel 7 or 8 miles north east of Klemtu. Very narrow entrance w 1 fathom at low tide but extremely good protection. Entrance is hard to find. Anchor in 6 to 8 fathoms. Plenty of room for about 6 boats. Very calm and quiet. The other boat in the 1st pic is another Willard (40).

I must confess, that anchorage DOES look just about perfect! Beautiful.

RE: Your idea of a perfect Anchorage?

Here's another anchorage that's perfect in some ways and quite imperfect in others. It has a very large area that's about 20' deep and that's very unusual here. I've heard that it's not unusal to blow in here too but the bottom affords good holding in very thick, stinky and black mud. But there's such a huge area the wind can howel and the anchor can even drag a considerable distance and not to worry. I'd anchor in here in a blow again but usually I'll avoid that awful mud. First pic is on approach. Second is of the bay at large and the 3rd is after anchoring w all 325' of rode out and even more space to windward than downwind (shown). This is Calder Bay just west of Dry Pass inside of Shakan Bay on the NW coast of Prince of Wales Island.

Your idea of a perfect Anchorage?

While I normally prefer to have a private anchorage, it is very rare to have the anchorage at Chatterbox Falls, Princess Louisa to oneself.* To my minds eye, it still is the most perfect of anchorages. This is my desktop wallpaper at the office....the count down to vacation is on!*

RE: Your idea of a perfect Anchorage?

Killick,
Your picture is STUNNING. As far as I'm concerned you get the prize for best anchorage picture. I just wish I could click it and make it full screen on my 27" i-Mac. Rich colors w the perfect amount of contrast. I also regret that I never made it to Chatterbox Falls when we were down south. I always wanted to go in the winter. Can you edit and re-post it as a clickable thumbnail? I wonder if that would work anyway.

"I always wanted to go in the winter ..."

The fresh water runoff from Chatterbox Falls can freeze to a depth of 2-3 inches, and that will keep you over a mile away from the floats and the falls, and scrambling to get a mooring buoy at McDonald Bay.**The locals*planned New Year's Party at Princess Louisa is cancelled about every other year.*

Thanks - you are both too kind!* The camera did all the magic...all I did was point & click.* Digital SLR's are amazing.* Chatterbox Falls is best viewed in the spring with the run-off in full flow...thie was taken in early May and already the falls had started to moderate.

I'll try to repost a link to the full format pic - it is uploaded to photobucket.* If it doesn't work, I'd be happy to email it to anyone who wants it.* It makes a great wallpaper!* ps....it's just under 5mb.* Thanks, Alisa
