It still seems strange typing 2020 in the heading. With each new year brings another Toronto Boat Show, and it opens tomorrow! There will be lots of great things to check out, including workshops, demos and shows on the water, lots of exhibits, a women’s day on Sunday, and for the little ones they can go fishing (yes really) and beg Mom and Dad for all the snacks and treats available at the show.
I will be there from mid-morning on Monday until Wednesday around noon, and if you contact the marina we can make arrangements to meet and take a look at or discuss any options you might be exploring.
Also, remember if you are thinking about upgrades to your docks to keep those toys secure, we can certainly take care of that with Ryan’s custom docks and decks.
Finally, please be careful out there this weekend. We aren’t venturing out on the lakes yet as they aren’t safe in most places still and all the snow can be deceiving. As for snowmobiling, the trails aren’t open yet but you can check for updates here.
Well it doesn’t look like this anymore, but its nice to dream about!Hopefully some cold temperatures in the coming days will help to freeze things up again and we can start over with a new base.
We are in to our winter hours now, open Monday-Saturday from 9am until 4pm, and closed on Sundays.
Leah’s Dragon Boat Team is again collecting corks in order to raise money for them to represent Peterborough in the 2022 International Dragon Boat Festival in New Zealand.All natural corks will be recycled and made into products such as flooring and bulletin boards, and of course this supports a great cause. You can drop corks off to the marina anytime, or at the Village Wine Shoppe in Bridgenorth, or the Wine Shoppe in Peterborough. Have a great week.
We said we wouldn’t be back until the 2nd, but figured a weather update might be worth it. It sure is pretty nice out there right now with the snow sticking in the trees. The main roads have been well sanded but are still slippery and snow covered to help grind the snow into the ice. More importantly though, the lakes are not safe yet. The snow we are getting today could be deceiving as it covers thin ice but please don’t venture out. Some of the back lakes and sheltered bays have 3-4″ of good ice, but the main lakes and open areas have only a skim or an inch or two of bad ice. Stay safe this week – be patient (I know I’m one to talk, itching to get out for a ride) but not yet. Have a safe and fun New Year’s Eve and here’s to a great year ahead!
