Scream spent three days at the Port McNeill Boat Harbour waiting for the EURO 2008 Final. The boat harbour is nice and in the centre of town. Port McNeill a town, in contrast to several places Scream has been recently. Their grocery, chandlery and several other establishments lightened Scream's pockets as needed items were obtained […]
On Waggoner's advice, Scream stopped at Shoal Bay after clearing Dent Rapids without incident (Yay!). Shoal bay was once a town, and therefore has a government dock. It now has one resident, Mark, who is both wharfinger and publican. The Shoal Bay Lodge is a cabin that serves cold beer on the deck and in […]
Gone Fission in Tenedos Bay
Sailing our dinghy Gone Fission in Tenedos Bay in Desolation Sound.
Gorge Harbour Marina
Scream enjoyed a wonderful day at the Gorge Harbour Marina on Cortez Island. We arrived early enough on a sunny Sunday afternoon to catch brunch at the restaurant. We provisioned at their store, did laundry, took long showers on land, and even recycled our cans. In the evening we even had a fire at […]
Scream spent one night at anchor in Quartz Bay on the north west side of Cortez Island. We anchored in the western cove along the shore behind the small island. The view of the cliffs on the nearby shore and the snow-capped mountains in the distance was quite nice. We anchored in 55' on a […]

Each panel is warrantied to create 195 watts of electricity under ideal conditions ten years from now. Conditions are of course always less than ideal, but the panels weaken with […]
On the advice of Mac and Catherine on Indigo, who we met when they rafted to us in Comox, we spent a couple of glorious days at Tenedos Bay. We anchored in the northwestern cove, which was empty when we got there. It's almost entirely landlocked, and while getting in and out was a little […]
Strait of Georgia
A quick update from one of our recent crossings of the Strait of Georgia.
Practicing for the Tropics (or, Galley Bay)
After sailing off the anchor at Savary Island, we slowly made our way up toward Desolation Sound. The wind was light and we changed sail several times and even motored for a few minutes before the wind picked up from astern and we sailed to Malaspina Inlet. We passed the inlet and made our way […]
Before we got to Comox, we had anchored in False Bay, on Lasqueti Island. It was a very rolly anchorage for us; we think Qualicum winds were blowing overnight and funneling into False Bay. We spent a disturbed night there, buy were still up for a dinghy ride into "town" the next morning. The village […]
