The product description:
As a part of our provincial highway system and a lifeline for coastal communities, BC Ferries plays an integral part in British Columbians lives. This is especially true for cartoonist Adrian Raeside, who has been drawing cartoons portraying the ferry fleet for over thirty years. From breakdowns, groundings, the Fast Ferry Fiasco, the Sunshine Breakfast, German-built ferries, the Million Dollar Man (David Hahn) and fuel surcharges, Raeside has covered it all in his unique style. The best of these hilarious and sometimes poignant cartoons are for the first time compiled into a book, a unique chronicle of our ferry fleet and a must-read for anyone who has ever endured a two-sailing wait at a ferry terminal.
I have to admit,  when I read No Sailing Waits and Other Ferry Tales: 30 Years Of BC Ferries Cartoons, it had been a while since I used the BC Ferries network. Now, having been on the ferries again, and having waited several sailings to get home, I'm finding the book to be even funnier.

The whole book is full page, black and white editorial cartoons surrounding various issues concerning BC Ferries. Perfect for anyone who uses this part of the British Columbia highway sytem on a regular basis. I'm reasonably certain that there's no way you'll find Adrian Raeside's book in the ferry gift stores either.

A very funny and quick read, but one that I'm sure you'll be laughing over and rereading after every time you're stuck waiting for a ferry - whatever the reason: breakdonws, traffic or the ferry staff going on strike.
