It’s hard to believe that another season has come and gone, and with many months of long hours, unpredictable weather, and tireless work behind us, we are now closed until the New Year to enjoy the holiday season.

We want to extend a very big thank you to ALL of our staff (Luke, Michelle, Shawna-Marie, Mary, Ryan, Gabe, Lauren, Evelyn, Kendra, Jordan, Olivia, Nikola, Kim, Linda, Tiffany, Becky, Don, Claire, Penny & Gideon) for doing a fantastic job through all of the chaos that comes with April-November marina life.
Mary worked tirelessly in a very physically demanding role out back cleaning and wrapping boats (not an easy task day in and day out), Michelle has learned so much about the marine industry and continues to serve all of you with the utmost integrity, and next to Don, our longest standing and still smiling  team member is Shawna-Marie, who we would surely be amiss without and who always seemed to be in the right place at the right time to lend a hand and help this place function on a daily basis.
There is also a crew of important people behind the scenes who are always there to help us out or take on extra roles when things get especially hectic – you know who you are and we couldn’t do this without you (and wouldn’t want to!)

This year though, we especially want to congratulate Luke, who after getting thrown head first in to a big role in the shop did excellent work on the boats and toys and grew his own professional knowledge and skill-set, all the while leading the shop with enthusiasm and a great attitude. Well done Luke – you survived!

And finally, to all of our loyal customers, we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – we wouldn’t be able to continue doing the jobs we love if it weren’t for your continued support of your local Little Gull family. Thank you for another great season and we wish all of you a wonderful holiday spent with family and friends.

Merry Christmas from myself, Leah, & the whole crew here at Little Gull!
See you on January 2nd.

We’re back once again from the annual Boating Ontario conference this week and what a great event it was once again. There was lots of conversation about the good things that are happening as well as challenges the industry is facing, with high water levels being at the forefront of many discussions. Networking with colleagues, industry leaders and dealers, great keynote speakers and workshops, and of course the popular trade show and President’s dinner made this a very worthwhile event.  We would like to extend our sincere congratulations to our friend Judy Semple of Hutching’s Marine, the 2019 recipient of the W. J. Robertson Award to recognize her dedication and service to Boating Ontario for many, many years.  Well deserved Judy, congratulations!

As we move in to December, we are working on getting the sleds out of bed and ready to hit the snow, whenever it gets here again.

Have a great weekend!

Last week was a beautiful start to winter. This week feels a bit more spring like and is giving a great opportunity to get those ‘last minute before the snow is here to stay’ tasks done. Enjoy the sunshine!
