Dispatch Presentation

A presentation of some of what we're working on.....


November post

The current directors of LIRA have serious reservations as to the effectiveness and cost of any large dispatch system run from Vancouver and Victoria. In the event of a major earthquake Triage indicates that the major population centers will be looked after first. 911 will be overloaded, and it will be weeks or months before anyone even wonders if Lasqueti is still above water.

another view on level of battery discharge

This Old Boat by Don Casey is all about how to rehabilitate, repair and improve an old fiberglass sailboat, and teaches the needed skills. It has a section on electricity which includes a view on depth of discharge of batteries that is different from the standard one.

Weather Cancellations

When the 5:30 pm sailing from French Creek is cancelled,

Ferry running on schedule

Good morning

Winds have come down and the ferry is running on schedule

Ferry runs cancelled Nov 12 and scheduled Nov 13

A crew member from the ferry posted on the web site this morning that the 9:45 and 11:00 runs were cancelled. Later the 2:30, 4:00 and 5:30 runs were cancelled, because of high winds.


The telephone message machine at the ferry house (8787) says that the next run, weather permitting, will be at 6:30am from French Creek, and regular runs through the day, if possible.


Wanted: black or brown wooly, fluffy stuff for a costume.
