Re: Book recommendations for rounding Van Isle?

Do you keep Aeolus at bainbridge, or elsewhere? I could swear I know or have seen the boat.

Re: Book recommendations for rounding Van Isle?

Hi Marty, right now she is at Bainbridge as I brought her down here for the fall to do some projects that took a lot of time. But at the end of January we are moving her back home, where she belongs, to Friday Harbor!

Wouldn't be surprised if you have seen her/us up north. Down here we don't get out much because A. I've been working on the boat, and B. there is no place much worth going to in a few hours sail (Blake being nice, but small.) Up in the San Juan's and in BC we are out year round and Aeolus is frequently plying the waters. Stuart Island and Jones are favorites, with occasional trips to Spencer Spit and others. Often in the Southern Gulf Islands. And then in summer we have been up Georgia Strait to Desolation Sound for many years now.

Jog any memories? See Stories of Aeolus- Our Gulf 32 Pilothouse for pictures of her.

Re: Book recommendations for rounding Van Isle?

I think I figured out the where or what I thought I had seen before. In Edmonds was a Gulf 27 with the name Aeolus, along with another Gulf 32 with a different name, and I was confusing ALL the above along with your boat! I know, a bit crazy and goofy, but sometimes when similarities like this occur.......all you hear in the back ground is the do do do do do do from that tv/movie show that is escaping my brain, and as soon as I hit enter, it will go rom tip of tongue, to my brain to my finners that will not be typing!....grrrrrr.....

Oh well.

Marty

A book written ABOUT The Curve of Time gives a lot of great insight into the original:

And this book about the Haida Gwaii:

Re: Book recommendations for rounding Van Isle?

Thank you Livia, these look like excellent recommendations, and have bibliographies I can use as well! The female author has written other books on women in BC which would be good for me, and my two sons, to learn about.

Any other favorites out there like these for a book worm family going around the big island?

Re: Book recommendations for rounding Van Isle?

Perhaps a call to the Vancouver Island Regional Library system? The librarians there are generally very nice. I found an email for them ref@virl.bc.ca I'm sure if you explained what you were doing, and it was for your kids, they would be helpful.

Another very easy thing to do would be to stop by a bookstore at your first major BC port (sidney is full of bookstores) and ask them. If they are selling books to you you'll get a handful of recs!
