Boat DogHello all boat-loving photogs – this is our last Photo of the week on file – we need yours!!!

Adjusting the WindexThis shot came to us via Cat Ward of Toronto, although it was her friend Laurie who took it from the masthead of the Beneteau. Says Laurie: I’m always ready to go up the mast. I was a gymnast when I was a kid and it doesn’t bother me a bit.

Gibsons Sunday Race“This is in Shoal Channel off the town of Gibsons BC. We are awaiting the start of a second race. The boat pictured is a Martin I am in a Catalina. Picture is through the channel looking west and out...

CYOB Destinations: We Visit the Hilton Beach Marina

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.
