Christmas CardDear Santa;

Thank you so much for all the boats you gave us over the years.  We have all the White ones we need, all the Blue ones and all the Black ones.  You gave us some with sticks in the air and others without.  What a lot of choice!

Santa, I wonder, this year could you bring us some new customers.  Someone we can get warm and friendly with, someone we can help.  Someone new to boating or someone needing a change.  We have all the tools we need to help them and enough choice to allow us to satisfy their curiosity.

A line-up around the block would be a dream-come-true.  Like all those kids at the mall waiting for you; but we would take them one-at-a-time and show them the time and respect they need.

I don’t have a very big tree this year, you can’t leave them all for me.  Spread them around, a little, at least.  Or if that’s too difficult, maybe some discounted tickets for first timers to the Boat Shows.

All the Best of the Season to You.

Signed; Waiting for the Show to open.

Shrink Wrap2020 is a year of change – self-isolation, social distancing, quarantine, and working remotely have become the norm. For many, this has been a bitter pill to swallow. Another bitter pill for boaters is the delay of the season. Provincial laws differ – so terms like ‘essential’ aren’t translating widely across the marine world.

In BC, marinas remain open and fuel is available, sometimes with conditions. In Ontario, marinas, boat launches, yacht clubs and the professionals that service the marine industry aren’t considered essential, unless the service and location allows a person to access their permanent residence only accessible by boat.

CY Virtual Video Boat Tours

Virtual Boat ToursWe all love boats and nothing can break us up! So, what better way to spend our time than looking at interesting boats and going aboard in a virtual ride or tour. We have asked our friends at various dealers and manufacturers to help us assemble a one-stop online resource to experience some of the most interesting boats on the market today. Where the CY Team has done a review, we connect you to that expert viewpoint. Our Virtual Show will continue to grow so visit frequently and check it out. If you can’t go boating, you can almost experience the thrill via your screen. Not quite the same, but we hope you enjoy our fine tour collection.

KingstonBy Amy Hogue

Cruise into the city of Kingston, Ontario, and it will quickly become clear that this city and surrounding waterways have something special. Built around the northern shore of Lake Ontario, Kingston is the place to go if you love to explore new waterways, fantastic views, and exceptional boating opportunities.

Sitting at the intersection of three world-class Canadian bodies of water, Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Rideau Canal (Cataraqui River from Kingston to Newboro), the water’s influence is deeply woven into Kingston’s culture and history.
