Safety First for the May 2-4 Weekend

Boaters of all descriptions will be anxious to get out on the water now that the Victoria Day long weekend is under our belts.
While the sun may be hot the water is still very cold so help your clients and friends to remember their cold water survival safety skills and encourage them to be prepared before they head out for a day on the water. The CPS will also do Courtesy Vessel Checks for anyone who is uncertain whether they have all of the proper and up to date safety equipment on board, AND they have added new Flare Disposal dates to their list. The best day on the water is one without any problems so be safe out there and enjoy these warm spring days!

DURABLE WEATHERMAX STILL STRONG AFTER 10 YEARS

Chris Lohmann, owner of Lohmann Sails & Covers Ltd., knows first-hand the durability and superior colour retention of WeatherMAX fabric. After 10 years, a 65' trawler motor yacht cover he crafted is still as strong as the day he made it and the color hasn't faded. Prior to WeatherMAX, Lohmann had used the best materials he could obtain, but would end up repeatedly replacing covers due to shrinkage, leakage or mold growth. It was a costly endeavor for someone who stands by his product. ... Read More
