Maritime Museum of BC’s Massive Marine Garage Sale 2016

Marine Museum BC Sale

May 10, 2016

Marine Museum of British Columbia recently held its annual Massive Marine Garage Sale at the Pier A warehouse building at Ogden point (the cruise ship terminal) on Dallas Road Victoria.

The large number of buyers patiently waited in a lineup that snaked its way into the terminal parking lot.

Each member of my group had their list to share with each other. When the doors opened up, we fanned out in search of each other’s items. It wasn’t very long before the text messages helped us zero in on our list of hard-to-find items. I should mention the prices were fantastic.

For those who missed this fantastic event, you need to mark this down on your calendar for next year, right away.

The Marine Museum’s Board would like to thank everyone who came out to support the 13th annual Massive Marine Garage Sale. Also, special thanks to the sponsors. This was another successful event which raised $9000.00 for the Museum.

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
