As we get closer to another weekend, we wanted to keep you up to date on ice conditions. They are very inconsistent from lake to lake. According to our trusted source for all things ice related, the back lakes range from open in spots, to 3″ in some spots and 11″ in other places, so our advice is steer clear for now. Temps haven’t been consistently low enough to make the lakes reliable and we want to make sure everyone stays safe out there.

On another note, at the end of November we attended the annual Boating Ontario Conference. For the first time, we took some of the crew here with us and it was a great 3 days of networking, information sharing, and learning about the ongoing issues that our industry faces. The industry tradeshow on the first night, complete with dinner and activities was a great way to kick off the conference. This was followed by two days of excellent keynote speakers and informative workshops, and the event wrapped up with a formal President’s dinner which recognizes individuals and businesses who are leaders in the Ontario marine industry. Thank you Boating Ontario for another great event!

Enjoy the rest of your week and play safe.

Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a great Christmas and holiday season and are looking forward to a great year ahead.

We finally have some white stuff up here which is great to see, but the snowmobile trails are not open yet. It looks like the lakes have frozen over now, but we wouldn’t be venturing out there yet. Folks have been skating and walking on some of the bays, but please be careful due to all of the rain and thaws we have had over the past couple of weeks.
We are closed on Sundays for the winter, but are open 9am-4pm Monday through Saturday.

Coming soon is the Toronto Boat Show, January 18th-27th. Give us a call or email if you are interested in changing things up for next summer and Richard can meet you at the show on 21st, 22nd or 23rd (Monday-Wednesday) to help with those tough decisions and finding the best fit for you and your family!

We also want to welcome Justin to the Little Gull Team. Justin joined us late this fall and we look forward to having him as part of the crew.

Finally, Leah wants to thank everyone who donated corks over the last year! Please feel free to continue saving up and dropping corks off at the marina anytime.
Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated.

Here’s to a happy, healthy new year and hopes for a great Canadian winter ahead!

A little Monday morning fun. We often get asked in August if it is still ok to come through the sandbar. The answer is yes, but the later in the season it gets, the more important it is to be aware of the channel’s angle. This video is from the end of October.
Our strategy: Line up, speed up, trim up, close your eyes and hope for the best 🙂 Ok maybe not the last part, but it really is true when you go through fast, less of the boat and motor are in the water and you can get through no problem with an outboard late in to the fall.
Have a great week!
