A Day in the Life at Centre Bay, Gambier Island, BC
Considered one of the Coast’s “best-kept secrets,” Centre Bay Yacht Station is located at the end of Centre Bay on Gambier Island. Founded in 1962, CBYS is a private outstation and is not affiliated with any yacht club. It is set up as a corporation with shareholders and was established as an affordable, family-friendly place to boat. Further details and photos are available at cbys.ca

What Is the Best Ice Cube for Your Boat Docktails?
The ultimate boating ice cube review! In this time-lapse video, I am comparing restaurant ice (from a commercial ice machine), homemade “ice cube tray” ice, a large round ice cube mould and a diamond-shaped ice cube mould.
1st glass = Commercial Restaurant Ice
2nd glass = Homemade Ice Cube Tray Ice
3rd glass = Round Ice Cube Mold [Winner]
4th glass = Diamond Shaped Ice Cube Mold [Contender]
The restaurant ice disappeared pretty quickly, the ice cube tray ice put up a fight but it is definitely the larger, dense, cubes that last longer.
The tide is rising as the ice is melting – it took me days to get that right! Enjoy the video!
