Meanwhile, south of the river down Cowichan way there were many ships to  shape with incredible heavy metal tools...then pack up the Eurovan and head everyone to the water with grandpa on his BMW speeding along ahead.

This riverfront 3-day sale is home to not only a professional machine shop/automotive garage, but also a redwood canoe building business where you can expect the major high-end milling and lathing machines, plus all of the specialized tools and shop works to go with them. For the less ambitious types there is the biggest collection of 52 split-cane fishing rods around for this Peterson sailboat or camperized Eurovan, or just throw one on the back of the '53 BMW motorcycle, because the fish are waiting for you.
