Although Nanaimo, BC's harbor is part of an urban waterfront, it's an interesting anchorage.....for a change of pace. Lot's of human stuff going on, on the water and ashore.
Our spanking new US flag is at our stern, while the Canadian flag flies at the 'courtesy' position just below the starboard spreader.
We strive to get along with the Coast Guards on both sides of the border. Never been boarded and inspected (yet). Little things like flying their flag in the right place might keep them away.
