McGregor Test Run


Impromptu day on a MacGregor, a 26 foot trailerable sailboat, that Hubs has been dreaming about for some time now. They don't call him SeaBoy for nothin'. We spent the day tooling around Deep Cove, Indian Arm, and Coal Harbour. It was bliss.

The best part: Going fast. And then drifting along the shore noting the cute cottages and pretty natural sights, not to mention the odd eerie, broken down electrical buildings from eras past.

The scariest part: Going under the Second Narrows Train Bridge. It involved using the radio to ask permission and then waiting for the train to pass while negotiating the incoming tide through the narrow.

We took the Summer Bucket List Challenge. Our working list is here.
