Dave, where'd they put your boat? We all seem to be really crammed in this year. I'm kind of between H dock and the Sheds.

Wish I could say that. Going down to the boat on Saturday to knock the snow off the cover. That is if I can get into the storage area.

They usually stick us on the South end near the last maintenance building. I'll only know for sure in the spring. We're on J10.

Ha, I can't stay away that long, I usually make a check once a month, just to see if the cover is starting to sag. I'm in 18 on the East wall, last winter they put me on the grass near the South wall. Very few boats there this year though, maybe it's too wet.

scottb, I know someone in your marina who nailed a rock near Beausoleil Island. Fortunately there didn't seem to be very much damage.

Sail or power. Sailboat across from us ended up on the sand bar just between the red buoy, outer Penetang harbour, and mainland as you turn to head up the slot. Don't remember the name of the point.

Also heard a 36ft. power on full plane, come to a sudden stop on the sandbar south tip of Beausoliel.....


We're in the parking lot of the hotel ( now closed ) in our marina. Nice to be on pavement to keep gravel/sand out of boat.

Thanks John, been on some of the other forums for a couple of years. At some point would like to be able to get to the Bahamas etc.

You mean the M12 bouy? I've been heading to the wrong side of that before. It's seldom quite where I expect it to be. I've always got one eye on the depth sounder/chart plotter though.

My friends are sail, & definitely hit rock. I got the impression it was up to the Northwest of Beausoleil. Boat stopped dead they said. External lead fin keel, just a dent, which was filed out & faired. No apparent damage to the keel bolts or at the keel to hull joint (yet). A lucky hit, if there is such a thing.

You know there's a wreck just off Candlemas shoal. The Wawinet, about half the guys drowned trying to swim to Present Island & the other half walked along the shoal to Beausoleil Island:

Yes it is, Christian Island ( Georgian Bay )

Christian, Beckwith and Hope Island are great destinations for the weekend.

Beckwith
