Welcome to Coal Harbour Media

My name is Evan Seys, and I’ll be your guide as I test and report on various types of vessels that might just astound you! Or might not!

Many vessels are touted to come fully loaded and be sleek and fast as the next, but I’ll give you a real hands on look at all the features, upgrades and flat out speed you can handle! And if your boat isn’t listed, email me and I will see what I can find out for you.

Sea Trials is the section of the site you’ll find my reviews and articles on almost every vessel I’ve tested.


Sea Stories are just that, you won’t want to miss some of the fanatical tales of the high seas that only a true sailor can tell.


Check out my image gallery where I’ll dazzle your eyes with the coolest sunsets and some really neat boats and the people who sail them.

And you must check out my regular RANT. This could be about boating, or about world politics, or anything in between. It’s just one man’s thoughts.

 Are you wanting to sell your boat? Or are you in the market. The business of getting into, or out of boating is full of pitfalls. As a MARINE CONSULTANT I can help you through the process so that you make the minimum of mistakes

TEACHER OF BOAT HANDLING. Having driven everything from Ocean going ships to 8′ pram sailing dinghies, I am supremely qualified to show you how to handle you boat. References are readily available. I teach power boat handling, with twin engine or single, with or without bow thrusters, and as for sailing, well I have been doing that for 64 years.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT . You have gone away for the winter. Leave the boat in my capable hands for supervision of all your needs. I will get you the best prices and make sure the jobs are done properly. Anything from haul out and painting to electronics and engine servicing. Leave it to me.
