If you’re contemplating a float down the Nechako this weekend, here are Mike’s top five tips for floaters…
#5. Though not necessary, it’s nice to have your Pleasure Craft Operator card mounted somewhere in the wheel house.
#4. Be sure to get off BEFORE Quesnel.
#3. If you encounter a 19 foot sturgeon, look over at the others and say “we’re gonna need a bigger boat”.
#2. Keep in mind, if you hit an iceberg and find yourself looking into the eyes of Kate Winslet. She will let go (I saw the movie).
#1. Remember when buying a floatation device you should be looking for something that is more “water proof” than “water resistant”.
#1a. Remember to bring a stash of O’Henry bars with you. Nothing says floater like an unwrapped O’Henry!
