boston whaler

I went off station in the morning and returned around 1500 hrs.

Weather: Light wind, calm sea.


  • I noticed Pigeon Guillemots for the first time this month.  Surf Scoters also present, second sighting of them here this month (see photo).


  • picked up supplies from shorefront: shovel, replacement boat dolly rollers, and HP pump oil.
  • picked up whaler from mechanic at Pedder Bay Marina, new steering cable/helm installed and fuel filter replaced. New steering cable is a great improvement, especially for getting in and out of the jetty.
  • drained muddy, stagnant, nasty pool of water that had formed near assist house, suspecting it might be related to backed up drainage problem.
