On the BC Coast with my new Trawler

Hi Everyone,


Excited to be on the beautiful BC Coast with my new (new to me) 1978 CHB trawler.
Been enjoying and learning from so many excellent posts.


Cheers Chilly

That may take a while - there is so much to see right here in our own back yard!

I see you were being pulled or returned to the water at Gibsons Marina.
Congratulations and hope you enjoy the new boat.

Gets to about -20C (-4F) here for a couple weeks about twice a winter.

The harbour and main channels don't freeze, but in bays with creeks fresh water that floats on top of the salt water freezes. Our boat is on an outer finger in the marina and never sees ice, but boats closer to shore get frozen in every year.

It's a weird place weather wise. Lots of marine weather marches up the channels from open water 90 miles away as the crow flies (there ferns growing in the moss growing on the branches of trees) while cold air from inland flows down the valley during cold snaps and from the surrounding mountains.

Kitamaat means People of the Snow in the local Haisla First Nations language, so it's had a bit of a reputation for thousands of years.

I've seen mushrooms and slugs in January, maples turning red in July, and snow in the fields around town for six months without melting. There is no such thing as 'normal' weather here.
