Extra day in Bella Coola.
Connected with a high school friend who lives in Bella Coola.
Lukas went off on a tour with native guide(s).
Matt and I (mostly Matt) did a full maintenance thing on Merva. We changed the engine oil, some filters, etc.
The weather window for crossing Cape Caution has switched from Monday 28th to either Saturday 26th or Sunday 27th. So we will be doing 12+ hours of cruising tomorrow to get us to either Fury Cove or Safety Cove. We will be out of touch until we find a good day to cross Cape Caution and arrive at Port Hardy. We easily have enough fuel. We will fill the main tanks up with the fuel in the ‘cans’ at the end of the long leg tomorrow. This should balance the boat a bit better.
