Re: My last little bit of planning
More books, lots more books
Or get an e reader..... books take up a lot of room.
Desolation is beyond Powell River, you'll want either Ports and Passes, or the Canadian Govt volumes 5 and 6 (IIRC) in case you push a bit north of Deso itself.
Gems to visit north of the border:
Sidney Island (watch your depths)
Ganges on Saltspring
Wallace Island park
Tribune Bay (in settled/westerly conditions)
Provision at Refuge Cove, Squirrel Bay store, Heriot Bay on Quadra, maybe avoid Campbell River - fishermans haven and bait tank hell - plus considerable daily currents in passage
