TOILET ON BOARD? Yes there is a toilet (head) on board and it's private.
WEATHER A PROBLEM? Being a larger weather worthy boat, we don't worry about that in the summer months at all. There are many protected fishing spots on the Port Hardy side to give a smoother ride should there be a system moving through. The "Starfisher" is weather class 2 by m.o.t. standards which is a big plus. Check out Port Hardy annual weather on the web
