I cannot help myself, I admit it. Just as cat videos have overtaken the Internet dogs on board are taking over Photo of the Week!!!

Nikki Bill
















Ruth Still sent us an impossible to resist photo of her Golden Retriever 'Nikki' with her husband Bill on their boat, anchored at the Bay of Quinte Yacht Club.

“The boat was a 40' Hunter Legend. Nikki was around 2 years and loved joining us on a sail. Bill made a special ramp for her to board as she was pretty heavy to lift on-board. We have since sold the boat but have great memories of our times sailing together with her.”

This is a photo of our mascot, Willy, our 14 year old Bichon, taken at Thetis Island, BC.

Cute or what?!!! Lise and Mike Starkey are from Nanaimo, BC and own a Catalina 30 sailboat.

OMG what great great shots. But I promise, next time we’ll switch gears. But really it’s up to you to pic the subjects. The photos can be of anything, preferably nautical and they must be taken from or near a boat. They must be your shots and free from copyright. Most importantly, they must be wonderful. Send the to us via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and put Photo in the subject line.

We’ll publish yours in the next issue!!

Gulf Island Marine ParkStory and photos by Catherine Dook

One summer I sold ice cream and knick-knacks at Montague Harbour Marina. I was standing behind the counter one day, when the phone rang. “There’s a boat at anchor in the middle of the bay that’s been playing loud music for three hours,” complained an irate-sounding male voice. “Can you make them stop?”

“Um, no,” I replied. “The marina has no jurisdiction over the anchorage. Besides, my only weapon is a till.” The man hung up on me.

Now when you think about it, you can understand why the poor fellow was annoyed.

Cruisers Yachts Cantius 42

Cruisers Yachts Cantius 42By John Armstrong and Andy Adams 

The latest new model from Cruisers Yacht sis the Cantius 42 and this yacht made its debut in the fall of 2017, at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. We had the pleasure of going all through this newest Cantius there and clearly, the Cruisers Yachts people continue to refine and expand on all the features that have made the Cantius line such a success.

The new 42 continues the Cantius family resemblance with handsome and distinctive lines including a big section of hull side glazing port and starboard that makes the full-beam mid-ship master stateroom feel very bright and open.
