Hello from Powell River

New to Trawlers and this site has been a great resource.
Lots of knowledge and experience here.
Just picked up a 1970 38' Offshore Cruiser built in Taiwan. The wooden hull is in very good condition.
Superstructure, not so good.
It's a project but seaworthy.
Thanks to admin and all the people posting
Steve

Figured there might be a few people from this area. It's a cruising paradise.
Well I guess near anywhere on the water can be.
I have a cabin on Powell Lake so brought the boat here to complete the work. The boat on the trailer looked bigger than the stores on main Street.
I'm sure it's all over Facebook by now.
It'll be going back to the Chuck
Maybe we'll see you on the water
Steve

It's been difficult finding info online about it.
Lots of documentation came with it.
It was their 7th built. The guy started work on the cabin and didn't finish making matters worse. The damage is mostly superficial.

Welcome to the forum Steve, there are indeed many from your area on the forum and it's great to have another. Hope your projects still allow time on the water and please post pictures.

Always wanted to see the head of Powell Lake so may spend Christmas up there.

Rid, welcome to TF. If the stars align we'll be headed up your way next summer. Can't wait to do a little sight seeing up your way.

Welcome. So the boat is in the lake or in the chuck?

Don't recognize where the photos are from.

The photos are from Gibsons harbour north of Vancouver.
I brought the boat to Powell River where we pulled it out and brought it to Powell Lake.
It's parked at my home where it's handy to work on.
I'll be putting it back into the chuck when I'm done.

Welcome Steve. Keep us updated with your refit projects. We like lots of pics!

BTW have they removed the big rock in the middle of the channel at the Powell River Marina?

The story behind the rock.

The rock has always been there. But the harbour grew to encompass the rock.

I was on the select city committee to improve Powell River's waterfront.

We had just had a referendum approved for funding and finalized plans for the reconfiguration and new floats for the North Harbour. Had architectural drawings for the Wharfingers office, got the infill legal ownership transferred, made arrangements for sewage treatment lines with BC ferries, removed the oil lines on the pier, got funding for the gazebo and railing for the pier.

Out of the blue, it was suggested that if we applied for Federal funding for south harbour improvements, they would be granted and matched with provincial funding. But we had to do it quickly. So we did.

We had to move Wharfingers office, complete the trail, get fisheries to approve the larger harbor, design a seagrass habitat compensation marsh, get new docks built, and dump rock to build the breakwater extension, all prior to the herring spawn closure.

It was an epic achievement as it involved Federal, Provincial, City funding and environmental approvals, which are known to be glacial in progress. We had the breakwater extension done in less than 6 months.

When the contractor couldn't get the rock moved, and blasting wasn't an option (I recall we were on a permit extension for herring spawn) the decision was made to keep the rock and add a lateral mark.

Back then, we had a lot of people in town against the development then as it was only going to "benefit rich people".

With today's new group of global warming hand-wringers over increased sea level in the future, no politician in BC or Trudeau's government is going to stick their neck out to approve or remove a rock in our harbour.

And really, single screw, deep draft fishboats don't have much issue with it. And they have to get to the crane to unload.

So, yeah, this is an excuse, but we ran out of time, money, permit to deal with it properly. So it became a comprimise. It is a bit of a pain at low tide admittedly.

And it does sort out the boaters that have no idea of what it means, which can make listening in on 66a entertaining...
