     Our motley crew spent 13 nights on a 42 foot catamaran cruising the Canadian Gulf Islands.  Out of those 13 nights, 5 were spent docked in Marinas.  We had some good adventures, some new adventures, and some bad adventures, but as everyone knows, travel really isn't travel unless one has SOME adventures. We learned how to fix a few things on a boat, and we probabaly learned a little too much about each other!  But...we did it! I will post a few stats here, but as the old saying goes..."you would have had to been there!" I, for one, am glad I was!
