Yeah, spring is definitely here and launching of boats is now upon us; you cannot beat the blue skies, the warmth in the air, the smell of "springness", the arrival of the first buds and no ice in the river. This sunrise, taken on March 17th, truly captures the beauty of the 1000 islands and the arrival of the boating season 2010. Download your April wallpaper by Clicking Here
SPRING COMMISSIONING SHEETS AND CANVAS
As we are gearing up for full launch, and if you have not sent us in your Customer Spring Commissioning Sheets, do please note that launching of your boats will be on our schedule.
As we get underway removing the shrink wrap, anyone who has taken their canvas home for the winter, please ensure that they are delivered back to the marina as soon as possible. You might like to give Chris a call on 613-659-3408 as to when your pending launch might be and when the shrink wrap will be removed.

We really appreciate the feedback that we received regarding our garbage facilities; we have decided for this season to monitor garbage usage/abuse. There will be dumpsters at "D" dock and beside the large covered grey building; recycling bins will be placed at "D" dock and beside the large covered grey building and the large bins with lids will be placed at the beginning of "B", "C" and Scenic docks.
Our Scenic Gym is now up and running and available to be used at your convenience. It is located in the old Scenic Store and has the most up to date equipment for a good work out.
Since our customers were here last Fall the electronic gate code has been changed; so please call me on 613-659-3408 for the new number.
We can't wait to see everyone back down here at the marina and on the River, and we are all really excited and looking forward to a wonderful summer.
Happy Easter to one and all.
