No Life Jacket? – Improvise with pants.

No Life Jacket Required

Who needs a life jacket when you've got a good set of pants on? My good friend, Michael Carr, demonstrates the lost art of turning clothing into survival gear (in under a minute). (Note: of course, I am not advocating for not using a life jacket while boating. Life jackets always work better than pants.)

Visit to the St Roch

Captained by Henry Larsen, the RCMP schooner St. Roch was the first ship to completely circumnavigate North America and the second sailing vessel to complete a voyage through the Northwest Passage. She was the first ship to complete the Northwest Passage in the direction west to east, and returned east to west.

She is now part of the Maritime Museum in Vancouver. We have posted a tour on our Flickr page:

Harbour Taxi

the Kings wharf harbour taxi is now in service running between Kings Wharf in Dartmouth, and Sackville landing in Halifax. They also offer trips to the Arm, Mcnabs, and along the waterfront.

The vessel interior looks to be quite spacious. Expect an update after I have gone for a ride.

Update on Farley Mowat.

Pollution Control Activities continue.
The coast guard is reporting that 1000lbs of absorbent material has been removed from within the oil boom, and divers have removed 2000 liters of pollutants from inside the hull. 5 drums on deck have also been recovered.

no word on when and if the boat will be raised, or who will fit the bill.

When the vessel was arrested, Paul Watson, Captain and founder of Sea Shepard Conservation Society quipped that he was sticking it to the Canadian Government, making it responsible for a boat they were looking to get rid of.

Nice Guy, off fighting sealers, and Japanese whalers off in the Southern ocean, but not willing to take responsibility for safely disposing of one of their own vessels, resulting in thousands of liters of oily products spilling in his homeland.
