Chris & Kathy sent some notes with these sweet pics:

Christian IslandsThe boat is a Monk 36 trawler named StarDust X. It was built in 1998 by Nova Scotia Yachts. They're no longer with us but there are still a couple of hundred Monks around the continent and an active user group. Great boat!

Yoshi is our 11 year old Bichon Frise. He's a pretty good boater and likes to keep a close watch from the foredeck.

This pic is a good chuckle.

Monk At Mooring In Parry SoundThis shot is from the first night on its new mooring in front of our cottage in Parry Sound, Georgian Bay. We got the boat this spring.

Directly across from Killbear Park lighthouse if you know the area.

“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.
