Hi to you too from the Sunshine Coast although a bit south of you.

When looking for a trawler use the winter to do some looking and watching.

Ahoy and welcome aboard from a Great Lakes cruiser. We love Madiera Park and Pender Harbour. Hope we can help with narrowing the field.

Best Wishes

Welcome aboard!! What made you pick that part of Canada? Is there really more sunshine there than in most areas of the PNW?

I was hoping that was the case. See the Living in Canada thread I just started, inspired by The Sunshine Coast.
