I wonder where the 'Orca will be docked until she's in service next Tuesday... Saltery Bay? With a Comox-based crew, I suppose the most economical location would be Buckley Bay, but last I looked, Quinitsa was still sitting there.
I look forward to many photos of the "opening of the visor" over the next number of years. I'll try my own next month.
For some comic relief, the fine people on the "BC Ferries - Our Marine Highway" facebook group have concluded that today's soft-sailing was just an election day stunt. I guess they missed the memo of the late ferry finally getting a May 16th start date, and the need to prepare for that.
I was talking to friend whose husband was on the sailing, here's what I got as the highlights:
When someone fires up a bike on the garage deck, it is *damn* loud. Must have good resonance... BC Ferries has once again arranged the seats so that very few of them face each other. The food was "ok". I'm not sure why that was pointed out, maybe the menu is slightly different than what's on the Burnaby... The passenger deck felt really tight, not a shocker considering we're well used to the Burnaby's larger space. There was some complaining about unloading process, but it didn't make sense to me... maybe after I've seen it myself...
