With just over two weeks until we open the doors for our 26th season, “rig up” is in full gear in Naden Harbour. The winter tarps have all been removed from the log buildings and “Mike the Painter” has the wood refinishing almost complete. The new set of Mercury outboards traveled north to the lodge weeks ago – Johnny C and the marine mechanical crew have everything bolted on and are just completing the rigging of our fleet of aluminum boats. Now that the docks and the breakwater are all in place, they’ll start floating them and the marina will begin to fill up! The Grady Whites are ready to come home from their winter storage in Sandspit over the next week or so. John S and his operations team have been busy through the winter with updates and upgrades to facilities – both on land and on the floating equipment. Advance groups of summer crew are starting to arrive to set up their various departments and prepare for the major staff arrival on May 22nd, when final training sessions will get under way!
It’s shaping up to be an incredible season and everybody here is so pumped up about it! We’re looking forward to welcoming you very soon!
