At the shipyard

2018 shipyard aboard Raincoast Conservation research vessel “Achiever” is complete! With coats of primer and paint applied, a few new ball valves, a shinned up prop and few other upgrades, Achiever is back in the water. A big thanks to Nanaimo Yacht Charters and Stones Marina for the lift and facilities. Velella Voyages, Yasmin Sinclair, and Nathaniel Glickman for your help over the past two weeks. Looking forward to this season plying the coastal waters of B.C.
