Well we survived the long weekend relatively unscathed. It was great to see so many people up enjoying the beginning of another cottage and boat season. Thanks to everyone who was so understanding of the impact that weather conditions this spring have had on our ability to get boats launched. Luke has done a great job stepping up to the plate as head mechanic here and is working hard to get boats run up and launched. We are also excited to announce that Justin has been hired as an apprentice under Luke’s supervision and he is eager to continue increasing his knowledge of a wide variety of engines.
We are now open 7 days a week, running full steam ahead for the foreseeable future. Our sales section is getting updated regularly with used boats and motors for sale, and if you are looking for something new please get in touch with us.
There are only two weeks left until the Emergency First Aid & CPR Training course runs at the Community Center on June 8th. Contact Lori Harper to register.
Enjoy the sunshine!
What a rainy couple of days! It sure isn’t helping the ground dry out or firm up at all. After tomorrow the next few days are looking like we might see some sun, so let’s keep our fingers crossed.
Unfortunately we have some sad news to share in doggy world. We had to say goodbye to Lola after 13 loyal years. She was Stormy’s only daughter, amongst a litter of 4 brothers, and with the puppies’ mom not being around after she was born, Leah became the mom to the litter, raising them in the house and bottle feeding them from about a week old. Needless to say, Lola has always held a special place in our hearts. Over the past few years, she joined the crew on the front lines, and could often be found wandering the property and keeping an eye on everything and everyone, as they came and went. Mostly though, she was glued to Leah 🙂
We will miss her around here!
What a start to spring we’ve had! It’s official, the ice and snow are gone and its boat season. And speaking of boats, we have some news to share.
Many of you over the years have gotten to know our head mechanic Cal. He has been an integral part of the team here at Little Gull for 13 years (crazy how fast time goes), and it is with very mixed emotions that we share with you the beginning of a new adventure for him. Cal is moving in to a management role at a new marina just outside of Peterborough. Slightly closer to home for him and with a focus less on marine engines and more on motorcycles, which is the background Cal came to us from, it is perfect for him.
We want to wish him all the best on his new endeavours and thank him for all of the great years, many long long hours and fixes of boats, tractors and everything in between, and especially for all of the great treats that often got sent in for the crew here from his wife Val.
Luke has embraced the challenge as we move in to the spring of filling the role of lead mechanic and we know that he will do a great job.
As always, we need at least 2 weeks notice in order to get your boat in the water. We are already way behind due to the late start that Mother Nature gave us, combined with the very rainy, muddy conditions we have had, and appreciate your patience as we work to get your boats ready to go as soon as possible.
