Atlantic Boat ShowsMany businesses have had to be creative and find new ways to offer their services because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Halifax International Boat Show, Moncton Boat Show, and NB Sportsmen & Fly Fishing Show normally take place each winter, but the 2021 editions of these events have been postponed to 2022. In an effort to keep boating and outdoor enthusiasts connected with the show’s dealers and exhibitors, the event organizers have moved to an online platform: The Maritime Boating & Outdoor Digital Marketplace.
 
Beginning April 14th, anyone with an interest in boating and related outdoor activities is invited to visit the new platform. Users can filter by company name or category, and browse exhibitor listings that include email, website, and social media buttons, photos, videos, product highlights, and special offers and promotions. The platform features a variety of categories including cruisers, pontoons, yachts, marinas, outfitters, sport fishing, docks, accessories, and more. An on-demand seminar series is also being offered. 
 
“We are striving to maintain a connection between the boating and fishing communities and the dealers and companies who provide related products and services,” said Show Manager Scott Sprague. “Consumers have always loved to shop the shows, so we hope that our new Digital Marketplace will help them research products and make decisions about purchasing new equipment for boating, fishing, and other pursuits.”
 
With outdoor activities booming during the pandemic, the Digital Marketplace offers a way for dealers and exhibitors to reach a broad audience of potential buyers. New exhibitor listings are still being accepted from companies involved in the boating and fishing landscape. 
 
The Digital Marketplace will be available for a limited time– from Wednesday, April 14 through Sunday, May 30. This represents a significantly expanded timeframe from the typical four-day event, and lets users take their time exploring from the safety and comfort of their own home. Boating fans are also encouraged to visit the Halifax and Moncton Boat Shows and the NB Sportsmen Show websites to sign-up for email updates with the most current information as well as an opportunity to win door prizes and other giveaways.

Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54By Zuzana Prochazka

Beneteau saw an opportunity to add a little thrill to any cruising adventure, so they took the hull of the First 53 racer (introduced just last year), and with a few fashionable changes, created the Oceanis Yacht 54, the new entry-level of Beneteau’s swanky Oceanis Yacht line. The result is a performance cruiser that sails like a witch and looks like a grande dame.

Design

Roberto Biscontini is the naval architect and Lorenzo Argento created the details of the exterior and interior design.

The purchase of the L’Orignal Marina was made official in November 2020. The new year was barely underway when all 50 available slips were already reserved. No wonder the addition of member and visitor slips is already planned for the 2022 season – the 2021 count is up to 62 power and sail already. At the moment, the Riverest Marina offers boaters a stop where they can launch their boat...

Galvanic CorrosionIt’s a scary thought – but whether your boat is made of wood, fiberglass, aluminum or composite – it’s slowly deteriorating under you. Part of this is the nature of the marine environment: Sun, moisture, waves, wind, movement and vibration all contribute to components breaking down.

But there are other factors that are much more concerning and act at a significantly faster rate that the environment can take credit for. One of these is commonly spoken of, but not terribly well understood: Corrosion. As boaters, we’re concerned with two main types of corrosion: Galvanic and Stray-Current. This edition will focus on galvanic corrosion – in two weeks, stay tuned for info on stray-current.

One of our Canadian Yachting contributors, Denise Miller, had shared the article on my social media and a young man reached out and asked if she could connect him with the owners of the boat, Dave and Barb. Denise leapt into action and Dave and Barb were thrilled. They concocted a plan that the young lady, Mia, thought she was coming to model for a sales brochure for Dave to do charter tours.
