Comments

     This vessel has had a distinguished career on the B.C. Coast as a picket boat during WW II and then as the first home of the Pacific Christian Children's Mission.  The book, A Candle on the Coast, written by the founders of the mission, Alf and Margaret Bayne, details in vivid prose and photographs the history and people of the coast in the mid 1900's with specific emphasis on the development of the mission from its slight beginnings aboard MV Goforth to its present day land based mission at Gowland Harbour on Quadra Island.

     The vessel is nearing completion and ready for many more years of coastal cruising in safety and comfort.

     The MV Goforth truly is a rich piece of the maritime history of the B.C. Coast
