Tomorrow will be DAY 1 of our trip around Vancouver Island. We figured out the windlass problem (corroded wiring) and it took us 2 days to fix it. This afternoon we got the windlass motor back from being reconditioned and Barry put it back on the boat and it seems to work just fine, keep your fingers crossed. This should be a lot of fun, we plan to be away for about 6 weeks. This is a practise run for when we head to Mexico. Things should be interesting. I am planning on catching a few crabs and finding some oysters.
