Steveston Marine 6ft protocol for Covid-19

Boating is one hobby that is safe during all the gloom and doom of Covid-19.

During these difficult times of Steveston Marine & Hardware is committed to try and keep the customers and staff safe.

As boating provides a safe refuge and recreation and social distancing to individuals and their families, customers are ordering product on line or coming into the stores where we practice safe social distance by posting signage and extra counters to create a minimum 6 ft distance between staff and customers. Counters, door handles, visa machine pin pads are sanitized frequently during the day.

Customers are also phoning in orders which are then kept ready for pickup at the service counters.

As seen on the TV:

“A gentleman stocking up on beer said he was going sailing as that was safe social distancing”, said Iqbal Ladha

Safe boating to all from the crew at Steveston Marine.

We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.

Clearing Pillsbury Sound, surrounded by voluptuous emerald mountains as the ferry sliced through royal blue waters, I was struck by the unspoiled ambiance of St. John, the island gliding past our starboard beam and the irresistible charm of a village called Cruz Bay visible from our quarter stern.
