Wow - sorry to hear about that Frank. Absolutely no excuse for that kind of behaviour.
There is a "Big Fish" vessel that charters in the area; at 147' it may be the culprit. Lots of on-line info about it.

Yes and according to AIS "Big Fish" is travelling Jervis Inlet today, wonder if it is the same vessel.

Commiserations,that is really ugly. The culprit is likely illiterate as well as stupid so will never read your post. The only way through to people like that is via law enforcement or a civil claim. You don`t have enough damage to warrant the latter but maybe the local water related LEOs could be interested.

Thanks guys...
Super bad reception here but sounds like that is the boat. Will do more investigation once in wifi land.
Imagine suddenly having 147ft about 50ft off your beam. Unreal!
Still get a knot in my gut thinking about it.
Thanks again..

Likely is the boat. I would write down a very accurate account of the event including time place etc... Take that and contact the boat owner/operator and make a complaint. Send the same information to the appropriate authorities. In BC, that would probably be the RCMP?

Several times I’ve been passed similar to that aboard the Willard.

If there’s room (perhaps 50 to 70’) I wait till I can turn 90 degrees (at full throttle) plus before I hit the stern of the passing boat. Done thusly I can’t hit the passing boat but I come somewhat close and my maneuver usually gets noticed. I never gave a middle finger salute (kinda busy) but taking his stern wave straight on beats badly rolling and if he ever came up on my stern again I probably got much more clearence in passing.
Never had an “oh that was too close” either.

You may have a hard time finding a specific law about wake, but if you do have an injury, even a minor one, call the Canadian coast guard and report just exactly that. Ask them to contact the Big Fish, which is anchored in vhf land tonight just outside Halfmoon Bay and relay contact information. Then send your wife to the hospital to get checked out, even if she is relatively okay and plan to send them the bill. Negotiations can start at that point as you will have their attention. If you have AIS, vesselfinder May even have the incident documented in their telemetry. They charter for $245K for the summer. I doubt they would enjoy being known for their careless actions by those chartering.

Wrong...
That is $245,000 per week...PLUS EXPENCES!
Crazy !

Anyhoot, thanks everyone.
I appreciate the words and advice.
The company has been contacted and the owner and operators are being made aware of the indecent.
I have no interest in damages, simply that they are aware of such a careless captain in control of their vessel.

On to happy things.

I have to back up the picture train to our day anchored at Octopus Islands.
Arrived and had the anchor down with lots of time to spare.
A beautiful day that was great for a dingy exploration trip

After our scare with Big Fish in “Hole in the wall” channel, it was easy going through the Yuks, Gillards and Dent rapids. After the morning stress, rather than do the next 2 rapids, we stopped at Shoal Bay for a nice, relaxing sunny afternoon. The scenery on the way was pretty nice too.
Claudia was surprised when she looked out to see 2 friendly and curious dogs peeking in to see what she was up to. Cute...

Pretty uneventful trip to anchor in Douglas Bay, just after Whirlpool Rapids for the evening. Awoke early the next morning hoping for a good start before Johnstone Strait woke up. Glad we did as it was just wavelets upon entering the Strait but the wind was beginning to create 2+ ft waves and building as we turned in 12 miles later.
The owners of Lagoon Cove Marina we’re happy to see us..... we are the ONLY boat here now ��
Off to Kwatsi today

The Strait

Left for Kwatsi this morning in overcast and rain on/off.
As it goes...things cleared for a beautiful run up!
Crossed Knight Inlet to Tribune Channel. So Pretty!
Thompson Sound’s snow capped mountains looked amazing!
Checking into Bond Sound before heading into Kwatsi Bay for the evening.
Loving this day!

PS...we are the lone boat at Kwatsi Bay as well.
Some may not enjoy this but late season cruising gives you uncrowded anchorages and marinas. The mountains are getting snow capped now. Much prettier than just a few weeks ago.
Yes..it’s cooler at night but a bus heater running underway and a Espar or Wabasko (sp?) at anchor or docked keeps you warm.
The scenery is worth it.

Max, the owner, came and joined us for dinner last night. He has a wealth of local knowledge and experience. Was a wonderful evening.
Now walking with crotchs, he has the marina and shoreside home for sale. His arthritis has overtaken his ability to continue on. Sad actually.... such a beautiful spot.
If you’ve ever thought of living remotely and meeting lots of folks during busy season that pay you.....this may be your chance. The price is reasonable and with the favourable USA dollar...even more so.
Speaking of wealth of knowledge, we are off to see Billy Proctor shortly.
Such great folks!
