Indian Arm, North Vancouver, Boats

I just received a very stressed call from a friend who lives in North Vancouver up Indian Arm. She went away on a lovely vacation to Europe only to come home to the news her boat had sunk. This year I took our boat out of the water when I went to New Zealand in January & am I glad I did. When you are not around & it is the rainy season in Vancouver should something like the bilge pump fail you have a BIG problem. In the winter the marinas simply do not have the traffic for someone to notice your boat as it slowly collects the rain water & sinks. SO glad I took precautions & put my boat into dry storage when I was down under. She is now ready to get her belly back into the ocean....... we just need a break from the rain & hopefully a spike in the temperature.
