    You can certainly have some of ours. I live about 30 mins outside Vancouver and we got hit with 15".

    Snow belongs on Christmas Cards and Mountains, neither of which you are likely to see me on. Unfortunately it's not quite working out that way at the moment

    Not to worry Hawk, it will all be a distant memory this time next week.
    Altogether, one cant beat the Coast, world's best yachting waters, and world's best ski resort only one hours drive from downtown.
    Time to take some ski lessons and take advantage of the seasons. :)
    If your knees are starting to go like mine from years of "mogul abuse" then snowshoeing is the new "zen" on a tranquil mountain trail.

    No worries. I enjoy the occassional diversion too. Thanks for letting us live vicariously through your winter exploits.

    Have you ever dropped your keys in powder on a downhill run? That's about where I am right now... staring at 1000's of lines of code looking for one broken piece! :rolleyes:

    In my case, just hire a helicopter with a GIANT magnet. In your case just get any fifteen year old kid.:eek:

    outmywindow was making light of Neil Rooney's attempt to install a webcam at D bar on D marina on D island.

    Check out the other thread 'Just Pullled In to Sint Martin', posts # 40 & 46 for D explanation, mon!

    Actually Yachtluver and MikeElliston, this great mystery can be easily solved by reading post #63 & #67 on this tread.

    So where's Evergreen now? She's headed to Vancouver?
    302 feet!? Wow.
    What's the scoop on her?

    Brian, she's here now, but to far away for a decent picture. Maybe I can lure her in closer by dangling a can of gas?.:D

    I've searched a bit and you all may know this but Evergreen was built in Nagasaki, Japan and is (or was) owned by Yung-fa Chang, owner of Evergreen Shipping Co. I have attached a couple of old photos of her sporting an "evergreen" hull. There was rumors he was planning on building a bigger Evergreen II yacht but it seems nothing materialized. Evergreen was listed for 55M USD a while back. On another forum, I too have read its name changing to Attessa IV and will be going through a refit soon at Vancouver Shipyard (as did the Attessa III) Owned by Mr. Washington. It seems believeable to me. I guess everyone has footitis!

    Just got back from a soggy boat ride to down town (Vancouver).Spotted a huge private yacht on the North Vancouver waterfront,upon closer inspection it was the Altessa IV,sure looks big from a 14' dingy.

    Good to hear that you managed to breach the parameter, I heard that it’s mined and patrolled by mechanical tiger sharks.
    Maybe go back, and take a camera this time.
    :cool:

    Ah, the return of the yachts! I've been seeing some smaller yachts out my window and look forward to the summer parade north!
    I hope Kisses will be heading up.
    On Saturday I saw the 110' Audra Ann in Pender Harbour but me without a camera! She's a 1992 Queenship and looked nicely kept. Her home port is Ancorage so I'm not sure if she was coming south or what.

    Hey, can you see the Attessa IV (ex Evergreen) over at Washington Shipyards from your window? I've seen some photos of her near the old CFI buildings.
