Are you kidding me? The basic map it comes with is like a pencil drawing of the US so I got topo 100k US which isn't that great either. I think I got scammed.

Anyways. I just had a thought.

what do I have to do to bring my dog into Canada? I can't find anything official. It looks like I have to do nothing. Some sites say I have to show proof of rabies, and if I don't I have to promise to get one. anyone have any information on bringing a dog? I totally forgot about this, I would hate to get ther and be turned away!

Thanks for the infor on the Portland Chandlery, I did not know that was there. I will stop on the way. I'm going to go with my 6 gallon and either a 3 from the store, or twwo two gallons I have in the garage.
Canadian charts are very expensive. None are free.

We travel by air with our dog. She needs a certificate from the vet indicating that she is healthy and that her shots, including rabies, are up to date.

Re: My last little bit of planning

Thanks for the link, since I don't consider my dog a food product, I didn't think that Canada might classify her as such.

Different countries, different cultures.

edit: wait, no I did see this site, so...basically they want a rabies cetificate but if I don't have one that's ok too?

---copied from site---

Animals That Are Not Certified

If a dog does not meet the import requirements for rabies certification, owners will be required, at their own expense, to:

have the animal vaccinated against rabies within a specified period of time; and
provide the vaccination record to a Canadian Food Inspection Agency office.

Re: My last little bit of planning

Many Chinese in Vancouver, so your dog might indeed be considered a food product. (G)

The good news is that a lot of Canadian customs inspectors are nice guys, and if you bring in contraband food stuffs, they'll just ask you to promise to keep them and eat them on the boat, instead of confiscating them.

Re: My last little bit of planning

North, get your dog vaccinated before you came and save the hassle. Do you really think you want to hunt down a vet and then find a CFIA office?

I lost some really nice Washington potatoes coming back into Canada when I cleared at Bedwell.

Re: My last little bit of planning

Faster: How long do you anticipate taking to get from Desolation Sound to the Broughtons?

We haven't decided exactly how far north to go, I just haven't researched north of Desolation Sound. My one concern about DS is that it will be quite crowded, I'm wondering if going further north will reduce the crowds.

How is the sailing up there? I'd expect winds to be a lot less consistent?

Desolation to the Broughtons is two days, assuming Johnstone is behaving.

Going north will definitely result in smaller crowds, but it is getting busier especially in the marinas such as Lagoon Cove and some anchorages like Potts Lagoon. Otherwise no problem.

Johnstone can get downright nasty especially in the southern sections. In the larger inlets like Knight that align NW / SE you can get very strong winds developing throughout the day. Narrower channels tend to be calmer.

"Nasty" That is putting it mildly. We fished the Knight Inlet area one year, "whoa Nelly", talk about wind, never went back.

Yep! Inland heating during the day causes inflow winds in the inlets. Calm in the early morning then rising at times to near gale force as things warm up during the day. best to make you moves out of the inlets early in the day... If your stopping by Lund look me up. I know the area pretty well. Cheers, Larry

Re: My last little bit of planning

Are most of the inlets subject to the convection winds or is it only some, I though onc I got into a place live Jervis Inlet, where Princess Louisa is, the wind would be totally blocked.
