Been prepping to haul out and thinking what a boat friendly place Cambell River is. So many places are right here, just walking distance from your boat. Be it food stores, restaurants, a chandlery, liquor, clothing, or electronics stores.. right here. A Canadian Tire store is across the lot as is a TD bank. The fuel dock prices are excellent as well.Theres an abundance of marine services available too.
Views from the dock aren’t bad either

The Raven’s Apprentice deserves a couple of photos in our “Interesting Boats” thread!

Willy was right... the yellow Helmsman looks better!

I do like the classic converted fish boats though.

Thanks , Bill

“Ya know the season is over when.....”

One of the many benefits of a smaller trawler..
Easy to move around and easily stored inside.

That is one very good looking Camano 31. Love the stainless on the bow.
Well done.
Just realized it is a Helmsman Camano 31.

I agree w you.
Could see Willy that color.

Now I see it’s got curved corner PH windows like a Willard 36.
The red bootstripe plays no small part in the programe either.

A bit more clean up, new zincs, bottom paint touch up and tucked away until??
I do love inside storage. It looks exactly the same when you return.

Frank, you just have this thing dialed in. From choice of vessels, to both of your cruising grounds, to the whole way you go about it. What a pro!
Bravo!

Covid has certainly given folks a new perspective on many things. The pandemic has forced most of us to slow down and spend more time alone or within our small circle of close friends. With that slow down came more time to reflect on what’s truly important to us.
After much reflection, I have listed Emma B for sale.
I truly love the boat and have been so appreciative of both the build quality from the factory and support received from Scott! If she sells, a new Emma B will be ordered and yes, it will be a Helmsman from Scott only this time a 38.
If, for whatever reason she doesn’t sell, I’ll look forward to continued adventure and explorations aboard her. As I said, I truly do love the boat. She was spend for the long haul....

Made it home to NE Ontario. Had to borrow a front end loader to get in.
The PNW may not be the Bahamas in winter, but it’s way warmer than home!
Was -21 cel on the late drive home last night. This was plowing in today...
Warmer weather IS coming very soon.

Did you pull the listing or have an offer on it. I don't see the Emma B on YW any more.

A downeast friend shared this. The cape boats are so distinctive. Love the colours with the white winter backdrop. Beautiful.

Been following your adventures for some time and just wanted to say Thanks! It's so nice to be "virtually" there with during your travels. And...looks like a beautiful, cozy home on return.

Looking forward to following along with the 38 as it comes together.

Good luck with the sale! I'm sure she'll go quickly.
