Capt Len is on a distinguished road
Next time you are in Desolation take the dingy out to Sky Pilot Rock at low tide. Count the many different colours of bottom paint criscrossing it. If it were not for the100 meters deep all around it I would dive for the scrap metal that has accumulated since the missionary boat named it. It's a real money maker (I worked at Lund Marine). I could go on and on about shoring up with beach poles, vessels caught 8ft out of water on two points of terror firmer. How unsettle ling is that ?
