Monk and PupDear POTW fans,

This Photo of the Week sequence from Chris Chahley and Kathy Coyle explains the whole boat thing. If you don’t love these shots, the time has come for you to switch to bowling!!!

Chris & Kathy sent some notes with these sweet pics:

Christian IslandsThe boat is a Monk 36 trawler named StarDust X. It was built in 1998 by Nova Scotia Yachts. They're no longer with us but there are still a couple of hundred Monks around the continent and an active user group. Great boat!

Yoshi is our 11 year old Bichon Frise. He's a pretty good boater and likes to keep a close watch from the foredeck.

This pic is a good chuckle.

Monk At Mooring In Parry SoundThis shot is from the first night on its new mooring in front of our cottage in Parry Sound, Georgian Bay. We got the boat this spring.

Directly across from Killbear Park lighthouse if you know the area.

We love Kathy and Chris’ fine shots; please send us yours. Every issue we showcase a readers’ boating pictures. Send them to This email address is being protected from spambots.

2022 Sea-Doo SwitchSea-Doo’s all-new Switch marries the performance of a personal watercraft with the versatility of a pontoon boat to create what might just be the perfect entry-level watercraft for young families.

If there’s one thing that’s been a constant throughout BRP’s colourful history, it’s a penchant for stepping outside the box and coming up with what turn out to be ground-breaking innovations. The company that was created around the invention of the snowmobile – and furthered by the invention of the jet-propelled personal watercraft – has never been afraid to adopt revolutionary approaches to what it sees as new opportunities.

Volvo Penta 130 and 150 SaildrivesOnce our boat comes out of the water, I take the annual fall tour of the hull so I can determine what to worry about all winter. The first thing I note is that the sacrificial anode I had intended to replace prior to launch last spring remains un-replaced.


I recall, as I look blankly at it, that my plan was to attach a brand new anode that I got from the previous owner many years ago, but when I removed it from its packaging, it was clear it wasn’t the correct match for my drive. Perhaps that’s why he hadn’t installed it. And why I went no further.
