I just read that the M.V. Lady Rose has retired after 70 years of service---a heritage vessel plodding the waters from Port Alberni on Vancouver Island out to Barkley Sound on the west coast. This was my father's absolutely favorite salmon fishing spots with my now-deceased brother. I regret I waited too long to ride on this venerable lady.
Do not despair-a new vessel the M.V. Frances Barkley is in service. I just wanted to say goodbye to the Grand Lady.
