Spring Painting 2008

We spend ALOT of time trying to keep the Coumbia III looking her best. This often includes maintenance in places the average guest will never need to know about but which will help to keep her hale and hearty for the next fifty years. Nevertheless, our spring is always busy working on the “cosmetic” aspects of the boat and this year we have been dodging rain and storms. Here are a few pictures of the annual refit:


We work pretty hard most days, but when someone noticed a pod of transient orcas passing by our dock the sanding blocks, electric sanders and dust masks were dropped like hot potatoes and off the crew went for a few ID shots for Graham and Jared.

After a nerve-wracking delay due to wet weather and the rescheduling of our Transport Canada safety inspection, the sun finally shone and the painting began in earnest!
