Carmanah Boat Repair.

The FoCW recently helped fund raise and repair the boat used by the Knighton family from Qwa-ba-diwa at Carmanah Point. This has enabled the family, who have been  long time supporters of the protection of the forests to continue to be on their traditional territory and to carry on their business supplying burgers and aid to the hikers on the West Coast Trail. Many Thanks to the different business and individuals that have helped make this happen. Jay and Glen at SG Power and Shawn at North Craft welding among others. The photos are, above Peter Knighton gets the boat back in the water and below a view of Qwa-ba-diwa and the repaired boat being presented by SG Power. Carmanah is an anglicization of the Nu-cah-nulth phrase Qwa-ba-diwa.
