Looked like the boat launch on Newcastle channel (near the old airplane fuel dock/public market) where they launched...

That explains it - I thought they launched in ladysmith and motored to Protection.

No matter how you slice it, you gotta give them credit for thinking outside the box - I doubt I would ever have come up with the idea.

Great video. The boat sure looks like it has a lot of potential, she has a nice look to her.
