Tales of Mishaps and Misadventure
B.C. Maritime history is full of stories of mishaps and misadventures. While boaters try to avoid disaster, each vessel carries its own stories of circumstances that went wrong, either out at sea or even in dock. Some stories are harrowing, others are funny, and many fall in between. During the Classic Boat Festival, we encourage you to ask the boaters’ for their stories.
At the Maritime Museum of BC, our staff and volunteers have combed through our archives to retell our favourite stories of mishaps from history. And if you have a yarn you would like to share, please send it our way.
