Boating OntarioGraham Lacey, Boating Ontario President recently sent out a member communication that it is time to 'spring forward' and prepare for another season, starting by attending the slate of Regional Meetings planned by the staff at Boating Ontario.

Lacey raises several challenges that lie ahead for the industry and the Boating Ontario Association. The obvious issues of low water levels, operational and rate changes in the Trent- Severn and Rideau systems and water lot leases are examples. Lack of funding for the association programs, skilled staff shortages and sustainable funding for the Association are not new, but still demand attention.
 
In the Boating Ontario  Bulletin, Lacey points out that the Regional Meetings should not merely be the 'year in review', but an exchange of ideas and opinions, suggestions and comments and direction on how the association can best serve the members.
 
Twelve meetings have been scheduled across the province over the next month, making it convenient for industry members to attend and have your say. He also encourages people to bring a friend! Boating Ontario is not a secret organization, Lacey says, spread the word.

The remaining meetings are scheduled as:

REGION 1 - St. Lawrence & 1000 Islands- Wed, March 27 @ 9:30am - Ivy Lea Club, Lansdowne
 
REGION 2 - Rideau Canal & Ottawa River- Thurs, March 28 @ 9:30am - Best Western Colonel, Smiths Falls

Questus Radar Mount

Questus Marine patented, Self-Leveling Radar Mounts automatically keep radar antennas level with the horizon, eliminating target loss.

Regardless of the angle of heel, with a Questus mount, a radar antenna will pick up targets to either side of a vessel, rather than aiming to the sky and water (for planes and fish). The Questus Marine Self-Leveling Radar Mount can be installed in three basic configurations: backstay mount, mast mount or Stern Pole mount.
