Greenline 40Greenline 40 making its debut at TIBS

The Toronto International Boat Show celebrates its 60th anniversary from January 12 -21, 2018 at the Enercare Centre. Since 1959, the Toronto Boat Show has grown exponentially to become North America’s largest indoor boat show featuring world class displays, 550 exhibitors and more than 1,200 boats from 6ft to 51ft for visitors to see and board. Visitors also can shop among thousands of marine accessories at the Mariners Marketplace and get summer-ready with outdoor gear, toys and décor at Cottage Country.

The Toronto Boat Show is a one-stop shop to see and buy all the latest boats, innovations and new products to hit the market. Exhibitor spaces are sold-out with all the major boat dealers from across Canada ready to showcase the latest boat innovations alongside manufacturer representatives who will be on hand to provide knowledgeable product information.

Cottage CountryOne of the must-sees is the first 2018 Greenline 40 Hybrid Yacht that will make its debut at the Toronto Boat Show. The yacht is good for the environment as it uses up to four times less fossil fuel than a planning powerboat in similar conditions. Not only does this innovation reduce fuel consumption, it also allows efficient electric propulsion using power supplied by the battery and solar power (Booth 156). Another new offering that is sure to appeal to boaters is the Dock Links Membership. With partner marinas from Lake Ontario through the TSW, into Georgian Bay and North Channel, members will receive 50% off transient rates, .05/L fuel discounts, parts discounts and free pump outs. With the NEW 2018 Dock Links Member Perks app, members have access to over 1500 discounts across Canada from the Coast to Coast! And membership is good for 365 days per year (Booth: C-506).

New this year, the Toronto Boat Show is offering a $5 after 5pm ticket (any day except VIP Preview Day) and free parking after 4pm on weekdays! A great value proposition to accommodate those who prefer to visit the show during the week after work and/or revisit multiple days to see, shop and compare from hundreds of new products and boats.

Grenada: It was all so inviting...

The Large Island of Grenada

By Katherine Stone

Anytime a Canadian is asked to travel south in the beginning of our spring, which this year was far from inviting, is a dream worth living. The thought of a sailing adventure, tropical breezes, the smell of spices and the warmth of the sun was too much – we HAD to go! The first thing we did was to dig out the copy of Ann Vanderhoof’s book, The Spice Necklace, we had acquired several years ago and to re-read the seven chapters of their adventures in Grenada. Not only should this be your required reading, but the book is loaded with scrumptious Caribbean recipes that are a must-try.

Leader 9.0

Leader 9.0By Andy Adams

In the case of baking a cake, Betty Crocker and Julia Child both start off with the same eggs, sugar and flour, but the results can be very different. Naval architects, designers and engineers in the boat business also have many of the same ingredients, but the trick is to make the cake unique and desirable.

With a huge history of innovative design in boatbuilding, Jeanneau brings the sort of skill and artistry to their boats that can set them apart. Their new Leader 9.0 model is a case in point.

Ask Andrew – How to hire a boat repair contractor

hiring a contractorBy Andrew McDonald

A recent conversation with a fellow contractor got me thinking: With all of the information out there, including: Websites showing repairs, YouTube tutorials, Instagram pages and snapchat streams – let alone books, magazines, service manuals, and years of practical experience – how does a boat owner know which method(s) are ‘right’, who to trust, and who to hire to do the job? In short: How do you find and select a contractor?

Unfortunately, most people are forced to hire a contractor due to a circumstance where something has broken or failed, or the task...
