The Captain, Rick Cousins spent the winter retrofitting Audrey in McLean’s shipyard in Prince Rupert B.C. McLean’s shipyard is reputed to be one of the oldest working shipyards on the west coast. This a great place to be when you have an old boat. I had to return to Whitehorse, as our home there was flooded. The three-week restoration work on the house turned into a four and a half month project from beyond belief. I don’t wish an insurance claim on anyone.

By the time that the Alaska State Ferry dropped me off at the terminal in Prince Rupert, the Captain had made the most of his winter. With the help of our friend Bruce Cairns, he had removed old rusted fuel tanks from the hold and built new tanks to replace them. This is not an easy thing. You have to remove these tanks through the back wall of the stateroom so the back deck had to be modified. He had also decided to install sewage holding tanks for the back head, the front already had them, but the back head was the one that we used the most. Our plan was to eventually visit marine parks and areas that had low flushing bays; take your poop with you when you go!
