I am on the Trent and I like the Standared Horizon cpv350. On my little 26 it eliminates the need for a separate radio, although I still keep a hand held back up, Packs a lot into the unit, and can be surface or flush mounted. Having said that, there are a lot of people on this site with tons of go...

Another boat fire in Toronto

This is the reason why we as a club do not allow un-attended boats on the hard to be plugged in. Happened last Thursday Nov 8/2012 Humber Yacht Club is 10 mins from downtown Toronto http://imageshack.us/a/img547/6456/image1ex.jpg video here: http://toronto.ctvnews.ca/fire-rips-through-docked-boat-ca...

If you could afford it, and had the space for it, I would say, sell your present boat in the spring near launching days, and buy now where people are trying to rid themselves of a storage over the winter. You could end up saving hundreds or more, then make up the winter charges on the old boat with ...

OK, I give up. How do you get the boat in and out of the water or is that just winter storage? And if it is winter storage, how do you work on the bottom? Can you see the steel "I" Beams on pics 6 and 7 overhead? They use a lift with straps that runs along that "I" Beam to lift the boats, then put ...

I noted that when looking at the boat. I was just hoping that I could avoid breaking open that hatch just to get a larger refrigerator in there. Well, I do have an alternate plan ;-) As long as the fridge is able to handle a 24, it's big enough. Who needs food anyways when you can have all those ca...

This is a good example of how I do them. I fold down all the canvas framing and errect a ridge pole supported by several vertical supports. Some do a straight pole, I prefer the curved one as in the link (Google). I find the straight poles tear too easily in extreme conditions. With a curved ridge ...

You shrink wrap right on your canvas frame? Not worried about snow load? Never had a problem with the Trojan, nor was there ever a problem in the past with this boat. The frame is solid, and there are also 2x3 pieces of wood framed in under the shrinkwrap as well that you cannot see from the pic. N...
