Nice

Iíve heard Burnaby Narrows has about the highest density of life, or variety of life per square inch on Earth...is that so?

Also, does the tide meet in the middle or it a bit of a wild ride?

From the BC Parks website regarding Burnaby Narrows;
Quote:
Quantitative studies conducted in 1992 and 1993 determined that this area contained some of the highest levels of living material (called ‘biomass’) of any intertidal zone in the world.

Favorite photo of your "baby"?

Murray: we took the dingy through at slack, but not Phoenix Hunter. Thereís a lot of tide, to be sure. We took the mooring buoy and it worked well. The intertidal was phenomenal thatís for sure, and yes, itís reputed to have he densest ďprotein per square meterĒ in the world. The biologist in me wondered about the veracity of that assertion, but itís impressive all the same.

You should go across and experience it for yourself. Badger will make the trip just fine. Just make sure you have sufficient fuel as the closest fuel is Sandspit. Just to wet your whistle...

Off Williams Cay Exuma last year. I also cropped it so that it fit above the counter in the salon. Worked well.

On my i-pad I took this pic at Langley on the so end of Whidby Is. WA. WE enjoyed staying there. Great places to eat. We ate breakfast at a big cafe that had a old style tin (literally) pressed (raised) patterend ceiling. Nice places to walk too. Tight moorage.

Badger with big brother, Hawk Bay, a converted 50' commercial fishing boat...it's amazing how much more material goes into a 50' boat, compared to a 30' boat!

Badger needs no stinkin' flybridge. Too many boats look like shrunken and compressed cruise ships, being almost as tall as long. Waters too wild here to be comfortable high above waterline.

Favourite snaps of my last three boats. Last one is our current boat, a Cheoy Lee 66 LRMY plying the Southern Ocean.

In our three days he was away and we missed him by a day. But his son was a hoot too! Great spot.

First two are top notch

Was Nick along for the ride, or did he just happen to be there while the storm was backdropping your boat? I like how he didn't use too heavy a hand in post processing.
