Wait wait. So you went from an $8000 orange c and c 24 to an $8000 c and c 27? That's like selling a 1998 ford explorer and buying a 1999 ford expedition.

Re: Crossing from West Vancouver to Sidney

If you say so, I'm not really sure of the comparison though. I prefer to think of it as getting 70% extra boat for free.
Anyway, this is all rather OT with regards to getting from Van to Sidney

Looks like great weather for it though wind might be light... I'll be hauled out and working on the boat at the yard there if you want to wander by Friday afternoon... (TB, not Race)

Re: Crossing from West Vancouver to Sidney

I think the plan now is to ferry over on Saturday and then stay on the boat ready for a dawn departure. You out at thunderbird there? If I have time I'll walk down and say hi Saturday evening.
