Re: Crossing from West Vancouver to Sidney

You planning on taking Timara over? I was just going to pay for the ferry for us on Friday evening, take a few beers and stay on the boat.

Re: Crossing from West Vancouver to Sidney

I was thinking of taking Timara over but I hadn't made up my mind yet. I thought with takng an unproven boat out that the security of a back up boat might not be a bad idea. Plus Nikki won't be calling Denise every 5 minutes.

Re: Crossing from West Vancouver to Sidney

Ah the cat's out of the bag now.
Pete - in that case, how about I get together a couple of people and we head over Saturday on Timara? Stay overnight (either on there, a motel or on the new one) and then you can take someone with you and I can take someone with me on the Sunday back to Sidney. Means a lot of sea-time but at least you aren't going to single-handing (literally!)

At least I'm a smiling natch.
Sorry Paul but the cat was out of the bag when you were on the ferry coming back home after you bought it.

OK, I confess, I bought another orange boat. I need help.

Thanks for clearing that up Faster.
Nobody on this website has ever called me a name before and that almost hurt my feeling.
