My sister and her hubs came and stayed at our place to watch our kids this past wknd. One of the great things about having no kids is the last minute decisions you can make- like ours to take the boat from Kilby into English Bay to watch the fire works. 3 hours both ways (and a rediculous amount of gas), but you cant really argue with the view (without shoulder to shoulder people to boot) Had a great anniversary wknd, but this was definitely the highlight!

ive often thought about doing that with the command center. was the trip back a gong show or ok.

The trip back wasn't too bad. There's quite a few boats in the harbour, but we cleared out of there in pretty good time... However, next time we go I plan on bringing bedding and spending the night anchored in English bay. We left around 11 and didn't make mission boat launch til 1ish and didn't make Harrison mills til 2 (and holy fuck that river after mission was a scary ride home)

agreed ive navigated that area after dark a few times and its spooky in spots.
i think i would anchor in the bay or somewhere close. wonder what the rules are?

We spent the night past year, as did a handful of other boats. I believe that it's permitted. There was a strong harbour patrol presence last year and no one said a thing
