Take some lessons from who exactly in boater friendliness? After arriving in false creek, which has every amenity a boater needs, and checking in at the welcome center and given free maps. They:The False Creek Harbour Authority usually has space for transients. Vancouver Boat Moorage False Creek Harbour Authority British Columbia, Canada
The False Creek Yacht Club may offer reciprocals if you're a member elsewhere. Anchoring in the creek is allowed with a 2 week permit (free) Dinghy security is a bit questionable..
The Granville Is market floats are only 3 hour spots, no overnighting.
You're right, Vancouver could take some lessons from other places in 'boater friendliness'...
Have free unlimited dinghy docks.
Two weeks/three weeks free anchorage.
Free temporary dockage at Granville market.
A freakin year pass to the rec center for unlimited free showers.
Parks, grocery stores, shopping centers, everything within walking distance.
If North America has a more boater friendly city, I don't know about it. Vancouvers top on my list of places to go back to.
