As is normally the case the threat of a long weekend brings out the best of weather locally...

Local forecasting is calling for clouds/rain/sunny breaks for Fri, Sat, Sunday. The forecast for the Gulf Island looks far better, sun Sat, Sun, and Monday. At least that is the Weather Network's guess...

I was originally looking to head up the Sunshine Coast for the weekend but the lure of sun makes crossing over very tempting.

Where are you all planning to go?

The plan is to head over to Page's Marina in Silva Bay on Friday afternoon / evening.

I'm hoping the front with the rain goes through earlier in the day, but it's still pretty far away to know the timing on that.

Heck, yesterday they said it was going to be bright sun today!

Silva Bay is a great first stop, avoids the rush to make the tidal flows at Gabriola or Porlier pass.

Rumor is that the Feds are going to be posting eviction notices on a bunch of the derelicts in Silva Bay TODAY! I think that gives them 30 days to remove them.

Pics to follow!

About bloody time. There were some real derelicts in there the last couple of years.

Notices are one thing. Will there be any follow-up though?

The pirate ship with all the fist (or larger) sized holes in the hull has been deteriorating rapidly each time I've been in there recently.

The word is that there will be follow up.

If the vessels have not been fixed or removed within 30 days, then the Feds will return and remove the vessels.

They have the funding in place to pay for the removal.

One of my first memories of cruising the gulf islands was of a lightning storm over tugboat viewed from the resort side...safely tied to the dock...

In the flashes you could see two guys in row boats madly chasing their derelict boats through the anchorage as the wind roared from the north end....

It was down right comical until one of the drifting hulks rammed into a well anchored 40' ketch...what a way to welcome the tourists...
