That curmudgeon didn't seem to mind some scrap paper left in his cockpit... maybe you caught him on a bad day!

That's right, garbage in my cockpit...no problem at all and not too difficult to track down the perpetrator. To go a step further...a beer or two or three in the hotel might be just enough to convince me to chauffeur said transient to beautiful Powell River for high falutin type groceries and other sundries.

Below is a reply from the park manager at Newcastle Island. There are buoys for 30' and 40' boats. The original poster on CF claimed the buoys were going to be noisy, not sure what he meant.


Sorry not to get back to you right away John, I was at a training course.

Yes, there are buoys to accommodate either 30 foot and under or 40 foot and under boats.
In talking with our staff here, none of them have received noise complaints related to buoys in the past.
We will monitor the buoys for noise this summer to see if this is a problem.

I appreciate your concern about being able to visit Nanaimo and certainly encourage you to keep on visiting Newcastle Island Nanaimo.

John

Thanks for that post. I have not been over to CF today. 40' is the usual limit on the mooring balls in the Gulf Islands.

If anything the balls will permit more folks to enjoy Newcastle and Nanaimo, and the Dinghy Dock.
