A few weeks ago we were fishing out of Bella Coola when the motor on our boat quit. We sent out a distress call.
A BC Ferry which was returning empty to Bella Coola just happened to be not far behind us and they responded to our call.
They took us aboard and then put our boat in tow.
We were treated with outstanding hospitality, given a tour of the ferry, and plied with coffee and refreshments.
A short while later a Coast Guard craft out of Bella Bella overtook us and took over the tow, taking us safely into the harbour and assisting with the mooring, again with professionalism and hospitality.
It is beyond comforting to know that in times of trouble we have these dedicated and capable professionals to come to our aid. Some never-wild roses to all of these fine fellows.
