Hi from Victoria, BC

Hi ...I got lost an found this place..same way I go boating, the journey is more fun then having a destination...I am resurecting a small harbour boat for pump-outs and general clean up of the area..floating debris and such...as we have no one doing it at this point..soOOooo I have no idea how this is gonna work out ..but that hasn't stopped me yet..

I agree, the journey is the reason and challenges along the way are part of it. I have found the folk on this forum very helpful so I hope you find it useful too.

Hi Ken,
Welcome Aboard and good on you! As a Canadian in the PNW we sooooo need your service(s). Hope it all works out for you (and us boaters too). The USA is so well set up with pump-outs everywhere. A mobile service in Canada (PNW) would rock! Cheers,
Bill

nice to get the positive on this.. I have learned 'if you have a shovel you can dig a hole with direction a ditch"..being VERY lazy .. I like a machine to do the work ..so now I have a nice shiny Vac tank ..and a boat to put it on..once I get the lights to work..always something needs attention

Hi!

The boat in the foreground must be very familiar.
