    Darn and Drat! It’s the Saturday of the Vancouver Boat Show. Now I have to make choices: Boat show? Women’s Day at the Boat Show? About three different seal gatherings for different sailing groups that I belong to? Or the Fibreglass and Epoxy course? Didja have to pick THAT day?

      Heather, you can always come to the Fiberglass offered by VI on Sat Mar 9. It will be in Sidney and I’m sure someone could pick you up / drop you off at the ferry terminal… One less choice then on Boat Show weekend 🙂

        Thanks Jennifer! I’ve actually attended the course offered by VI, and it was excellent.
