WoW! I had heard this story but didn't know a picture existed - I think it was by the sea wall next to Mitchells Avenue in Smallgains creek?

Brilliant! Got to join the 'WoW' club for this one. It's the first time I've heard of this story and even more interesting we stayed with friends in Victoria B.C. obviously in ignorance of Canvey's link with that beautiful city. Should have visited the Maritime Museum of B.C. Thanks Mark.

I will be releasing (September 2019) the first independent account of Captain John Voss and the Tilikum (Sailing Around the World in a Dugout Canoe). The Tilikum, of course, spent a lot of time at Canvey Island after the voyage and before she was shipped back to British Columbia. The book reveals much new information and brings the history of the vessel up to date today. It includes 100 pictures - many previously unpublished.
