Campbell River May 4 & 5

Had a nice slow trip from Nanaimo to Campbell River at our new cruise speed of 10.5 knots.... slowing to 8 knots reduces fuel consumption by 50% increasing to 12.5 kits increases another 50% so 8 kits is over one mile per gallon but so far we just can't do it. Probably after our first fill up in Port McNeal we will slow to 8 kits.

Had a new SeaJay sign placed on the new gas tank on the stern of SeaJay. This was done by a wonderful lady Marita Brostrom who with her husband Gunnar owns de Quality Signs in Campbell River. I would highly recommend her for any sign work you need High Quality at a reasonable price. Today we are waiting for a 1pm slack on Seymore Narrows and head for Port Harvey which is about 60 miles up Johnstone Straights.
