Also, a few retired boaters drop small change in local marinas. Sounds like a business plan!
If it feels like I've dropped northern Vancouver Island from the discussion and moved on to the Central Coast without much context, let me fill you in by locating the ghost town of Ocean Falls for you:
Bella Coola, British Columbia
It has a great deal more reason to exist than Ocean Falls, but it is still a struggling hick town of 1400 people.
And this is what they've managed to make of it.
