This was posted on the great blog put together by a good friend, Graham Gilley, Executive Vice President – Marketing & Sales of Rocky Mountaineer Vacations. I still have no idea how Graham does what he does. When I was doing "that job" it was only the train we were working on. Now, Graham has two more routes (the Whistler Mountaineer and the amazing Fraser Disovery Rouite), the Thompson Hotel along with Gray Line Sightseeing operations in Vancouver, Victoria and Banff. All of these operations need product, brochures, advertising, sales and media coverage! I do salute you Mr. Gilley!

New for BC Ferries in 2008

Bcf_2 The new Super C Class vessel build for BC Ferries is on it’s way to British Columbia. BC Ferries has built a tracker to follow it’s 45 day journey. You can expect to see the first of 3 of these vessels on routes between Vancouver and Vancouver Island by Spring 2008. They are the largest double ended ferries in the world, necessary to maneuver in the tight waters of BC’s coastline.

A video highlighting the “handover” of the ship is available as well. For those of us who depend on the ferry system in BC – it is truly an extension of our highways – it is a welcome addition to the world’s largest ferry fleet. And a great bonus for tourists travelling to and from Vancouver Island on the 90 minute trip.

MA’s Comment:  It’s going to be awesome seeing these vessels sailing in front of my sundeck!  Hmmm… maybe we can hijack one for the new Bowen Island Ferry????
