    We have a 75'x10' floating dock in Porpoise Bay, Sechelt British Columbia with 3 sailboats 25- 31ft, 1 trawler 35ft, 16ft runabout for shore and fishing excursions, 16' hobiecat and a 28' retired Bayliner being set up for workshop, sauna, shower room etc. 500m from runabout moorage and parking at pub, floatplane dock, showers, marine store etc. We also have unlimited wifi you can tap into for emailing, texting etc.

    Porpoise Bay is the best protected waterway on the BC Sunshine Coast - it is perfect for scuba diving, sailing, kayaking, fishing, crabbing - all things to have fun on thr ocean.

    Seeking individuals who are skilled, or are willing to learn boat and marine maintenance, hull and deck painting, brightwork (wood and hardware sanding, polishing, varnishing)... but also carpentry, marine electrical, mechanics, etc. Scuba diving skills a bonus. We are requiring 12v rewiring on some boats, install of wood heaters in others, repaneling of vberth in a pleasure trawler, epoxy work and painting on decks, above as well as underwater cleaning of hulls and general maintenance of all boats.

    Often times we travel to visit and do charity work for elderly friends with Very Large vessels ie. Out to Pender Harbour ( 45 min drive) to stay on a 72' ketch called The Graybeard, built in 1972 and which was a world reknown racing sailboat that needs upkeep such as deck painting, hull cleaning, interior refinishing, sails measuring over 5000 sqft needing hoisting and cleaning, etc..lotsa fun!

    Also seeking innovation and skills for building DIY desalination system, hydroponics/ aquaponics, hot water heating systems, etc.
