\r\n Been wanting to head over to the island since I got my 1st boat , sunday I did it Left 232nd boat launch at 9am and heading into some thick fog , around derby reach it cleared up and I was off , hit steveston by 10am and 45min later i was on the west side of galiano island near the north end , debated going between galiano and valdes but decided to drop some crab traps in 75 ft of water and headed to shore to explore for a hour , after seeing crabs and jelly fish and finding a buoy that was under a log on shore we headed out to collect our traps and make our way back to stevston to try for crab again , we ended up with no crab but had a great day , 3:30 i pulled my boat outa the water fuel gauge still on full with a big smile as we were safe and the sun was just going down
\n
\n I figured the trip had cost me $70 in fuel and that surprised me , my 18.5ft thunderjet with yamaha 90hp handled the strait great and never had to slow below 20mph to have a smooth ride , never went faster than 28mph and figure the trip was aprox 120 natucal miles , the longest part was from stevston to 232nd boat launch . If anyone else wants to head over for a day trip and crab im planning on going again but go through between valdes and galiano down to tent island to explore and crab , if anyone else can give a good general area around there to crab im all ears .\r\n

    \r\n Went over to tent island and all around yesterday for the day from ladner ,it was beautiful and sunny until the trip home , weather office said 10-15 but was more like 10-25 with 5-10ft swells , don\'t think I will be trying that again any time soon , anyone reading this and considering a trip over should watch the weather and be very careful , I learned a good lesson and made it safe wich I have to thank my boat for that , if I would have lost power I would have been in big trouble and calling out a SOS\r\n
