We would like to thank all the guys at Fermeuse Marine Limited especially Francis and Noel for making our yard time a joy. Our girls were given candy, chips, coveralls and even a scooter! I’m sure we made them all nervous letting our girls run riot around their yard. The didn’t get in too much trouble they just like a good chat, well Pri does while Wags looms in the shadows. We’ve been out of the water for 4 days, most of those being rainy. Carl pressure washed the bottom, welded some patches and painted her up. We chose from the fisherman’s color palette and Pri picked blue. We were a little worried that it was very much Cinderella blue but once it dried it darkened a little and we’re ok with it now. Can’t miss us. Instead of saying “we’re the big boat over there” we can say “we’re the blue boat over there”. Nice.
Francis loaned us his truck to go to the corner store for some food on the first day. Noel drove us to (the only) restaurant up the road for dinner another day. Super nice people.
We highly recommend this boat yard to anyone travelling through the St. Johns area. We’ve never seen a cleaner yard and it allowed self service.
We finally got our moose shot. Noel (boat yard foreman) came and got me when he spied this lovely lady moose. Wonderful.
Big thanks to Don who lent us his truck for the day so we could do laundry, groceries and pic up Geo in St. Johns (1.5 hour drive from Fermeuse). It was a tight squeeze but we did it! The drive home wasn’t much fun. I was that crazed lady driving up close to the windscreen determined not to hit a moose. Who drives 1.5 hours in Newfoundland in the evening in dense fog while its raining? Oh yeah that would be us!
Thanks also to Jason for helping us paint our boat and giving us a bucket load of movies.
I wonder why we got lost in St. Johns??! Thanks for the shit directions little man!
4 days later and we’re going back in the water. Thanks Francis and the team at Fermeuse Marine Ltd, A+ boat yard/ daycare center. They all made us feel like family.
The sea monster stuck to our anchor. Ewww!
She’s big, blue and BEAUTIFUL.
