The Ontario Marine Operators Association, in conjunction with its members, scheduled six Discover Boating Events for this summer. The goal of the events is to allow people to Discover Boating. People are encouraged to come by and go for a free boat ride and experience a whole new world on the water.

Doug and Brenda Dawson volunteered for the June 23 and 24, 2006 Discover Boating event in Port Credit Harbour. 20 boats--both power and sail were made available by the dealers in Port Credit. Doug and Brenda drove a 34' Cruisers Yacht supplied by Angus Yachts of Toronto. Doug is in each picture instructing each person as they experience driving a boat on Lake Ontario.

Following are some photos taken by Brenda of boaters enjoying their ride on the water.

Dear Brenda and Doug:

So cool that you We're the ones who actually did the review on this boat almost 25 years ago! Things come full circle.

Thanks for the details on the hull and what happened to the molds with World Class Catamarans.  I got the boat last year and the engine died right away, and I'm just re-powering it, so I haven't had a chance to use it on the Mississippi much yet really.  Researching what I could about it, I think it may be my favorite boat ever.Like a lot of us I enjoy learning the history about my boat!

I had already checked out your website and had already decided to get the book on docking the boat, so will be sure to get the pontoon version. And even though I'm an Eagle Scout and thought I knew in my knots well, I've already also decided to order the book on knots!   It sounds like you've developed a lot of great resources!

Peace and Love

Brenda, "Nice job by you and Doug, I really like your common sense approach to handling a boat with easy time for the first mate." Thanks again.

Bill, 'a fan'.

 

Y'all are the best! Downloaded it, saved it, printed it--now all we have to do is master it! Thank you so much.

For trailered boats, make sure the drain plug is on your checklist!  It wasn't on mine and I mistakenly expected that the shop who summerized and delivered my boat had installed it.  They didn't, and I didn't check for it, and didn't realize it wasn't there 'till I got back to my backyard dock and saw the water coming up thru the ski well.  I'm now known as "soggy-boy" after falling off the boat into the lake while trying to install the plug from above; would have been a lot easier on the launch ramp!  Fortunately, nothing was damaged but my pride . . . Cheers
