Parry Sound Launch

Hello gang I'm going to launch my catamaran in Parry Sound and am seeking information on a good marina to do that from. It will be on a flatbed trailer and weighs about 2 tons. Our plan is to get it off the trailer put a coat of anit foul on and then launch. Any suggestions of places to do this would be appreciated.

I've got connections there at the Coast Guard Base in Parry Sound. I can probably get it arranged to have the Bell 212 lift it off your trailer and drop it in the Sound!

Oh, BTW it's Hooterville, not Parry Sound!

Knottybuoyz can you make arrangements for a lift Thursday afternoon? I called Sound Boat works and they want a lot of money that I don't have.

Don't think he was serious about using the helicopter to launch your cat.

Yes I was being facetious. IIRC it costs us (CG) about $1750/hr to run the 212. I already PM'd Dudeman about that.
