Our boat sales and upcoming marina season reflect such interest with more people getting involved in the sport. We are looking forward to a beautiful and warm summer filled with time on the water,” said Brett Ramsey of Pirate Cove Marina
“So many people visited the 2015 Anglers’ Village area that were interested in learning more about both organized fishing opportunities in the eastern Ontario and what they could do to ensure the sustainability of their favourite fishing waters. Representatives from the five area fishing clubs were kept busy answering questions from prospective members, and distributing free Blue Fish Canada shoreline clean-up kits and fishing stewardship guides,” said Lawrence Gunther, founder of Blind Fishing Boat.
“Legend Boats, once again found success at the 2015 Ottawa Boat and Sportsmen Show. The buyers that were on site were very educated and qualified. With all of the major dealers, and brands on site, it’s a great venue for consumers to see everything and then some – all under one roof. Our valued dealers Orleans Boat World and Perth PowerSports rely on this show as the primary kick off to their season. The number of sales, leads and impressions made at this event, proves the show’s worth as the year continues forward,” said Jesse Davis of Legend Boats
