In the beginning of September most commercial boat in Prince Rupert stop fishing and our favourite fish and chips shop ‘Bob on the Rock’ just closed and will reopen again in the next summer. Seeing our dock friends leave to go back home including our new challenge sailors friends makes us understand we must leave soon as well. The weather is good and we have a pretty nice wind we are now try to rush in equipment installation (water maker) that is about 90% completed.
This has been Steve’s boat home for over 20 years, many great memories and hard to leave good friends.
Dave Anderson is the Sailing Associations Commodore. He has had a dream to own a Fisher 37 so if he looks a little green in the picture…..
Steph is checking for the wind generator. He thinks the bearings are needing replacing:-(
