My boat’s going in tomorrow I believe (Erie Basin). It has been getting dewinterized at Olson Bros near NFTA. Just moved into a new house so it’s kind of been on the back burner. Looking forward to being on the water though!
Man, it was perfect out there last night. Had dinner with fam, caught a couple nice bass and just cruised around. Got cold when we went past Strawberry Island and started feeling the air off the lake but the rest of the river was nice.
I just renewed the registration for one of my ski’s for the first time. They sent me a transferable registration. I don’t want to keep the transferable registration on me just in case I lose it, etc. I had been previously given an un-transferable registration the first time around as well as a transferable one.
Is there a way to get a non-transferable registration to keep on the ski with me, and the transferable one at home?
Yeah, I’d like to avoid running into a floating tree, so when I head out, it’s going to be slow going. Hopefully by the time we head up to the Trent, things will have cleared up a bit.
Docking this thing during a hard West wind sucked, since that pole that’s dead center in the above pic makes for a great pivot point against my rub strip. With the water level, that’s no longer a great plan
Arch and lower cockpit lights are White/red/blue/purple, switchable between colors.
Underwater transom lights are full spectrum RGB. When first switched on, they’ll automatically run through all colors in 20 seconds, after the first run through, they’ll go full cycle in 3 minutes. Quick switch off/switch on will hold whatever color is present at the time of switching.
Great news for US/Canada border boaters! This got it’s “Royal Assent” late last month. So basically the laws regarding crossing the border by boat go back to what worked for decades before Canada got all pissy in 2011. If you don’t go to shore or anchor you don’t have to report to customs.
This is interesting. I spent the last few days in Canada and we sailed to Crystal Beach for the 4th. We’ve done this trip several times, always checked in as soon as we arrived and either docked at the Buffalo Yacht Club on the Canadian side or moored at the Canoe Club. We’d stay there overnight then in the morning anchor at a spot close to the beach, swim in, etc.
This was the first year we were told we could anchor but NOT go in to shore for any reason unless we checked in at an official port of entry first. Our question was well then WTF is everyone doing at the Buffalo Yacht Club then? Certainly it’s not a port of entry. Everyone is taking dinghy’s to shore or just walking to the beach.
There was a police boat out there but he seemed mostly concerned with wake boats pulling people. They clearly were NOT concerned by the endless stream of jetskis buzzing the swimming area & rope.
Good news though is the video phone for US check in at Erie Basin works again.
