Early on October 22, 2014, the IATNL’s Arne Helgeland, Kevin Noseworthy and Paul Wylezol set off in boat from Cox’s Cove in Middle Arm, Bay of Islands for Back Cove in North Arm.  With them were new windows, assorted lumber and miscellaneous building supplies needed to start restoration of a 50+ year old fishing house now hiking camp at the base of the North Arm Hills, a location central to the planned Cabox Global Geopark spanning the four Bay of Islands Ophiolites from Lewis Hills to Tablelands.  They were onboard True North Charter & Tours’ Pilgrim, operated by skipper Tony Oxford and First Mate Andrew Oxford.  The ride took approximately 45 minutes and ended when the Pilgrim entered tiny but sheltered Back Cove, on the eastern side of Stowbridge’s Point.
