Re: Island hopping charter for young family -recommendations req'd

Thanks for the tips.

FYI, Nanaimo Yacht Charters have a Catalina 27 (booked out all summer!) and 2 30s. Smallest boats I've seen around here for charter - nothing fancy, but that's fine by me.

Re: Island hopping charter for young family -recommendations req'd

Re: Nanaimo - Princess Louisa Inlet in early July

Who are you chartering with? Nanaimo? I was thinking of speaking to them about their 27' later this summer for a week, so I'm interested to see how you find things.

Re: COsts of short distance sailboat transport

Yup, that's why I posted here. Anyhow, it's a moot point: the boat was being advertised for $500 on Craigslist, and it wasn't worth a penny more! I wouldn't have taken it as a free gift, but I had...

COsts of short distance sailboat transport

Hi,
This has probably been done to death, but I wondered what sort of costs I would probably incur for transporting a 28' sailboat about 20km? I've found one locally which is a project, and want...
