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.”

Willy At Thetis Island











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!!

Our two solar panels, shiny with the brilliant sunshine of July, kept our refrigerator running so well (at least during the day) that I was able to keep artisan bread dough chilled, half-a-dozen Mars Bars...

Scarab 255 Open

Scarab 255 OpenBy Andy Adams and John Armstrong

You can imagine,at the GroupeBeneteau dealer meeting in Michigan last fall where all the Four Winns, Scarab, Wellcraft, and Glastrondealers had come to see the latest new models, the docks were lined up with gleaming brand-new boats to show the dealers and media – and they certainly put on a show! But for me, the Scarab 255 Open was an immediate stand out. This is a boat that breaks new ground and brings fresh thinking and interpretation of the boating experience to a wide range of buyers.

We had a quick look around but the test drives would have to wait until the next day.
