Just so everyone knows, it's only a few miles from Ladysmith to Protection Island and it's very sheltered as well. Those old Davidson Chuggers are so slow that I doubt the trailer slowed it down much.

Wacky but effective IMHO.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Its been done before.

A New Zealand Nolex 25 was moved with its trailer attached somewhere in the North. It was a longer trip in unprotected waters.

The owner was moving house and did not want to pay the cost of ferrying the yacht on trailer.

I am sure it has been done lots of times

but this move has a wonderful bit of film to go with it

it has plot, characterisation, drama, humour and a resolution

one way or another this is a great bit or reportage

beautfully executed

I guess that was why I posted it rather than as a way of proving it can be done

but it is good to know a Kiwi did it first...

same Queen

warm feeling engendered

Canadian Low-Buck Boaters. That's how we roll.

Canuck ingenuity... to add to SJB's info.. Protection Island (perhaps a half mile across) has no ferry service, no real roads (note the golf carts used there to tow the rig 'home'...) so clearly this was simply a logical, pragmatic approach to a somewhat unique situation .

What I didn't understand is why they didn't tow the trailer to Nanaimo harbour and THEN "launch" it - they would have only had to make it across the harbour then and they would have avoided Dodd Narrows. I wouldn't want to run Dodd with a trailer hanging under my boat.
