The Boat Show is more than just boat sales

Every year at the various boat shows in Canada (Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Halifax) the opportunities for learning and networking, beyond your own booth, grow. One of these special events occurred last night when the Canadian Safe Boating Awards were handed out to people who were notable for their contributions to recreational boating safety and environmental stewardship. These awards are important not only for the recognition given to citizens who have made a difference but also because the success of our industry depends on safety and environmental intelligence continually being exercised and the CASBA's are unique in that anyone can nominate anyone else for an award. Keep your eyes and ears open year round for anyone in your community who you feel might be a candidate for an award next year. Happy Reading.

THE WANDA III IS A BOAT OF IMMENSE SIGNIFICANCE
THE WANDA III

THE WANDA III IS A BOAT OF IMMENSE SIGNIFICANCE

The once-proud vessel is now indefinitely moored alongside Muskoka Boat and Heritage Centre, the open water she longs to race through tantalizingly close and yet oh-so-far away. No longer quite shipshape, the Wanda III hides under a protective tarp. The plastic is for her own good, keeping the elements from damaging her wooden hull, but surely the elegant boat must feel aching embarrassment that in this year - her 100th anniversary - she should be hidden from view instead of gracefully parading across the lakes. ...
