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.

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.

It's the first time I'd seen anyone leave the ramp with the trailer still attached... on purpose.

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