Always measure first


This CY Onboard feature celebrates your photos. A wonderful crop this week. The plan was to publish two but because we got so many good ones we’re already going to three. But we need yours!

Here’s a great shot and explanation from Thurman Reynolds, CPS Stratford. Definitely the Photo of the Week.


Thurman Reynolds


I did a double take on this one. Looks like a classic case of “Two-foot-itis”. Always measure the storage space before buying the boat.

























Biggest Canadian flag in Bermuda

These great photos were submitted by Fraser Forsythe of Saint John, N.B.


Biggest Flag Biggest Flag Crew"The attached pictures were taken by one of my crew’s daughter, from the small boat abeam my sailboat, at the conclusion of this year’s Newport Bermuda race. The picture were taken of my boat a C&C 41, Sugar & Spice entering Hamilton Harbour from Great Sound on June 22nd this past summer. Oh and by the way the flag measures approximately 34’ X 14’; biggest damn Canadian Flag in Bermuda lol!!"

Send yours and join our tradition. Make it funny, weird, or simply reflective of the boating lifestyle. Whatever they are, we will share them with all of Canada and reward you for taking them. BTW, we have quite a stock of sunsets and yours would add to it. Maybe next time it’s an “All Sunset” edition!




Here are the rules – they must be taken from or near a boat. They must be your shots and free from copyright. Most importantly, they must be wonderful. Send the to us via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and put Photo in the subject line.

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.

Riverest MarinaThe new owners of L’Orignal Marina offer boaters a new destination. Located in a charming francophone village in Eastern Ontario, this joined marina and restaurant venue is the ambitious initiative of long-time entrepreneur André Chabot and biologist Alexandra Quester, both residents of L’Orignal.

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.

Mia and Caleb's EngagementOn July 23 last year, CYOB published a piece on a beautifully restored 1967 Trojan 42 Motor Yacht in Oromocto NB. (That piece was also expanded in CY magazine later in the year.)

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.
