January is a story about boat shows and buildings.  The new staff and off-season rental building has a fast-approaching deadline with the imminent arrival of spring tree planters.  The project has kept the crew out late and working hard through snow, ice and dramatic windstorms.  

January 17th saw the opening of the Vancouver boat show with Blind Channel’s booth proudly displayed for the first time at this show.  The five-day show kept us busy greeting old friends and making new ones.  From the Vancouver Show, our intrepid little booth headed south just in time for the Seattle Boat Show.  Here we found ourselves once again alongside our neighbours and friends including Desolation Sound Yacht Charters, Pierre’s Echo Bay, and North Island Marina to name but a few.  The boat shows are great opportunity to reconnect and show off a little piece of our paradise.  

A huge thank you to everyone who came out to see us, and to our crew back home who braved every weather system to keep on schedule.
