Rickkun,
Welcome to the forum. Lots of good stuff here. Where exactly on Vancouver Island do you live and what kind of boat are you hoping to get?
Dan

thanx San Juan Sailor,

I'm from Port Alberni. I'm not decided on a boat but think that 32-34 is what my wife and I need. Hopefully it will happen sooner then later.

How about you where are you from and what boat did you decide on?

Have you joined the Port Alberni Yacht Club? I have used their dock in Barkley Sound and met of few of the members. They are great folks.

Rickkun,
I live on San Juan Island. I have two boats (I have it bad) a San Juan 24 and a Mariner 32 ketch that I am doing a total restoration on and which is sitting next to my shop. I just watched a video on the Port Alberni web site about the beautiful area you live in. I've always wanted to see Barkley Sound. You have a lot of sailing possibilities although it would take a while to get out that inlet. Good luck with your boat search.
Dan

Aloha and welcome aboard!
You've certainly picked the right area in which to sail. Just saw a southern Cross 31 on the ads here in the forum. Looks to be in your area but I don't know about the price. Great boat.
Happy boat shopping!
kind regards,
