HUGE THANKS TO Don & Vickey Mayrand of SILVA BAY SHIPYARD.
I wandered in to the office last Tuesday to ask a question. Could we use the natural space beside the “Ways” for the purpose of somehow getting the Dragon Boat out of the water for cleaning etc, on Saturday April 21st.
Well, you all know the end to this story. Don was extremely gracious. He and Simon discussed the easiest and quickest way to get her out, clean and paint. When I questioned him, quite tentatively about the cost, he very quietly said “no cost”..
Gabriolans are SUPER> I told this story to the People assembled at the Steer’s Clinic on Saturday April 21, in Nanaimo, and they were extremely impressed. Some talked about being charged $400 just to get their boat lifted out of the water…
By Wednesday April 18th, Don and I talked at 4:30pm. He told me that she was already cleaned, painted and simply waiting for a reasonable amount of dry time, before they hoisted her back into the water.
WE THANK THE SILVA BAY SHIPYARD SO MUCH for another demonstration of Gabriola Island Generosity….
