POTW January 25Winter in Victoria???!!!

Great icicles! This is not what one expects from the tropical climes of BC. It’s a nice winter Photo of the Week, though.

“Took this picture of Ladysmith Marina (Vancouver Island BC) while walking the dock after a December Winter storm; ice formed on the water, snow on the boats and docks and foggy mist on the horizon.“

The POTW rules are simple. It has to be your shot, taken in and around boats or from a boat. Or anything else boat-ish. Or any great photo of docks, ports, winches, engine parts, people, and pets on boats, of course. You shoot it, we’ll include it.

Send your photos to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with POTW in the subject and we’ll get them into the publication soon! Thanks in advance.

The Hilton Beach Marina is one of the largest and most major ports of call in the Western North Channel. It also has a long and rich history dating back to the 1850’s.

I spoke with Marina Manager, Laura McRae and got the full scoop on what goes on in this inconspicuous but busy marina.

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.
