Much like in England.

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.

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

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.
