the boat is at it's slip in Arnprior, on the Ottawa river.
Sailing it east would be a pain... The CS is not big and solid enough for the gulf of St. Lawrence or the Atlantic.. sigh..
I read you on the weather. We've been out sailing a few time and always came back home early because of the rain and cold.
We're hoping to sail the North Channel out of Spanish late July, early August.
Thanks for the nice comment, Anne.
I too have been to Mahone bay. I love the East Coast and I'm very tempted on packing our old camper van to take off for down East . The only thing is.. I'd have to leave the boat behind.. sigh.. double sigh...
Have you been sailing yet??
We've been out a few times but now are worried about a diesel fuel spill into the Ottawa river. It was caused by a train de-railment in Mattawa near North Bay.
I saw your profile and realized you are going to the Abaco's in April. We went last year and rented a house and a 22' Albury boat. What a great area. Don't miss the Light House at Hope Town, Nippers on Sunday and Cracker P's for lunch and the view. If you like to dine out I would recommend the Abaco Inn, which has a great view. We are sailing this April out of St. Martin. Have fun, Bill
I was just cruising the profiles and came across yours. Mahone Bay is a place I'd very much like to visit. My smaller boat is a 1966 McVay Falcon 16' that was built there. I used to correspond regularly with members of the McVay family and they shared some lovely photos of the place.
Ahoy Anne, Grew up at family places on Georgian Bay Island and private lake on 118 near Vankoughnet not far from LOB. Don't sell North Channel short, It's internationally recognized as one of the two or three BEST cruising grounds in the world and it's effectively in your backyard. Cheers, Arthur
"Wayne, yes I'm still out here. She's looking good and you'll love her. The 38.1 is a perfect size for 2 people with occasional guest (s). Plus she's a sweet sailing boat. I'll attach a short video of one I was delivering…"
"Sam, I am just in the process of replacing both of my eyebrow windows. I have the new ones from Beneteau and am talking with dealer in Florida re Bebeteaus advice. It would be helpful to talk to you about your experience. I have never seen…"
Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response. Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
New to the group, going through the posts, I have come upon this thread. I was considering tinting my windows of my Beneteau 43 with a darker tint, but I really like your idea. So I will copy with…"
