Significance of Name
Len Burton (British Columbia Nautical History Facebook Group 14/05/2015) stated: "The Ready went over an over fall half way down Griffin Passage tearing the propeller shafts right out of the gearboxes. When it was realized a bit too late, the main engines were thrown full astern sucking the stern dowh and destroying both props, shafts and gearboxes.Quick action by deckhands Pete Moody and Vic Rowe swung the hyab crane in the other direction and she went over about a four foot drop. She drifted until her anchor caught bottom. She sat there for a week until discouvered by someone from fisheries checking out the salmon. The CCG McKenzie towed her home to Victoria for repairs that took a few months. John Glover was the Master."
Moore, Captain John (1983)
