|dillybar||Been to Ganges many times. It is one of our favoriite stops in the Islands. In some respects it's like setting the way back machine to 1967.. good times.|

My husband forwarded this thread to me. What a great collection of information. We are based in Sidney, BC right now and have been up as far as Nanaimo/Princess Louisa/Vancouver and around the W up to Ucluelet but not further North on either side.
I'm definitely coming back to this thread in May and I've downloaded that great .pdf
We have used the Dreamspeaker Guides for the W Coast and for the Gulf/San Juan Islands. We are able to get them from the local library and we have accumulated a few as gifts as well. Although they warn you against it, the drawings of the anchorages are often better to use once you are inside the bay/cove than our electronic or paper charts.
We are cutting the docklines for a permanent cruise this June and plan to spend our first year or so playing around "here" including the W Coast of Van Isle, Queen Charlottes, Puget Sound etc.
We encountered quite thick fog during a few day trip this past August up to 20 miles offshore SW and W of Bamfield. Could have been a fluke but we were very glad to have radar, in the fog, in the shipping lanes, at night... We also had our reflector hoisted (don't have a permanent mount yet).
