We don’t want to invoke panic, but our next edition of Photo of the Week will be in September. That means that the summer photo season is drawing to a close. In a couple of weeks, the coloured leaves change the backdrop of your summer boat shots so this is the week. 

At CYOB we NEED your photos and we need a lot of them to sustain us over the off-season. So please shoot and send them in pronto. Just to review, the photo of the week can be anything photographed on or near your boat, kids, pets, lunch, costumes, racing, cruising, craziness, signs – you pick it and send your photos, with a bit of a back story, to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and put POTW in the subject line.

We will carefully curate your shots for sharing over the upcoming chilly season so try to pack them with warmth.
Here is a couple of great shots left over from this season’s crop (but this leaves the cupboard bare, so get shooting!)

Hilton BeachBy Amelia Morris

Ah Canadian simplicity at its finest; small town, big marina. Little Hilton Beach (population 200!), which I am lucky enough to call my cottage country, is located on the north-east coast of St. Joseph Island. 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.
