It's Actually NOT So Hard Being Green

Inadvertently this issue of CY Onboard seems to be a Green issue. The Globe and Mail Innovation Awards recognize the efforts of Canadians who make a difference and there are a couple of really inspiring boating products that have made the cut. Last week the boating community lost a cherished member when Andre Lamothe of Naden Boats passed away. Andre himself was a green innovator, always reviewing and adapting his process of creating Naden boats with the goal being little or no impact on the surrounding environment. We could all take a moment to remember Andre and to appreciate the respect for our land and waters that thoughtful manufacturing delivers.
