Re: Ganges Suggestions
I'm going with Paul. I've been impressed with Lopez, Roche, Friday Harbor and poets cove and didn't like too much Ganges. Maybe I was expecting more. The worst so far was otter bay on the west side of pender. I tied to the outer and empty dock at 8 o'clock and the owner rusher down and chased me off! I have no idea why. Didn't ask me if I was staying the night, going to the store. Just rused up to me literally within 2 minutes and said
"It's fifty dollars just to touch our dock, this is a private marina. "
I did t know what to say. I just said "uh my guide book said"
He cuts me off
" we'll we let the public here but it's fifty dollars. Why don't you go anchor, there's a public beach over there. "
Totally ruined my night. Cruising the gulf islands said it was known for its warm welcome to visiting boaters. Don't know why he didn't like me. My boat is very clean and I take a shower an wear new clothes everyday(which sucks, I know)
