Join me in a toast

Raise your glasses fella's and join me in a toast to the end of another great season of boating on the St. Lawrence, Rideau and Ottawa rivers. The boat is safely on the trailer and parked in the dooryard. This will be the last time we winterize it (I hope) as the "For Sale" sign goes on it in the spring after a few upgrades to the electrical system and some cosmetic work.

It was a great year! 400 miles around Eastern Ontario cruising the greatest canal system in Canada. Met a whole lot of very nice people and toured a few exceptionally nice boats. Only casualties was 1 set of new props (rebuilt successfully) and some pride but it was all in the aid of another boater. The ole' boat ran like a champ which never ceases to amaze me as I rebuilt the engine myself! Go figure thank gawd for small miracles.

In the spring we'll put in some fresh batteries, upgrade some wiring, have the outdrive serviced, replace some pinstripe (I have no idea where that went! ) and some elbow grease on the brightwork. That's it! It'll go to a new family as reliable and dependable as possible for a 20 year old boat (It's in a helluva lot better shape than when we got it!).

All the best to you waiting to finish your seasons and those heading south for the warmth of the tropics (woosies ).

Cheers!

Yours Aye!

CN

Congrats CN:

Is there another boat on the horizon or are you done?
