|We deek in to Skidegate, finding that the guidebook is correct: there's no place to tie up a full-size boat there, only a dinghy dock and the ferry dock. Bystanders wave to us from the ferry looming over us; we turn around and get the heck outta there, continuing inland to Queen Charlotte City. Here, in the long twilight of the northern evening, we find our way in and (since there are no empty slips nor visitor dock) raft up to the rattiest-looking marina queen we can find. Running down the dock comes a familiar yellow slicker -- it's Kim! She's waving a plastic baggie full of fresh halibut, too. Now that's what I call a welcome :-) Next to our "slip", major construction is going on -- dredging and replacement of the harbour wall, a new pier, all kinds of stuff.
