Retail $399 + tax
Show Special $349 taxes included
The Kayak Kosy was designed and built in Nova Scotia by Bear River Plastics Welding to allow easy access in and out of a canoe or kayak from your dock. It is completely adjustable to fit most floating and stationary docks.
After 2 years of onsite testing, feedback for this design has been positive. All DOGS give this design two paws up for easy access in and out of the water. WAKE BOARDERS and WATER SKIERS have found this design to give them an easier and safer entry point to the water. People suffering from muscle and joint pain prefer this to a ladder.

Cruisers Yachts 42 GLSBy Andy Adams

Once again, Cruisers Yachts is leading the market for day boats with their new 42 GLS model that premiered at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show at the end of October. The concept of a large day boat is now a very well-established trend made possible by the amazing new power and efficiency of the latest four stroke outboards.

Buyers are looking for a different boating experience and we think that the 42 GLS nails it. Fast, handsome and versatile, the 42 GLS is designed for fun and adventure.

WinterizationBy Andrew McDonald, Lakeside Marine Services

“They don’t make ‘em like they used to”, is a phrase that many of us are familiar with. Most of the time it is in reference to a bygone era of better, and it’s used to lament the sorry state of what we have today. It is a phrase that can be applied to many areas of our lives: architecture, art, furniture, tools. Boats? I would argue that they don’t make them like they used to. But, is that lamentable, or is it progress?

Progress, I think. With this concept in mind, as we enter another season of putting boats to bed for the winter, why do we winterize as we always have?
