Dave Rozycki, President of MLM, remarked that “Our Spring 2021 acquisitions of Payne Marine (Pointe au Baril), Moon River Marine (Mactier) and Georgian Shores Marina (Owen Sound) are perfect complements to our growing portfolio and will allow us to enhance our value proposition to our boaters on Georgian Bay through perks such as reciprocal docking and fuel discounts.”

Georgian Shores is one of the few full-service marinas in the area offering dockage for some 300 boats as well as parts, chandlery, fuel, storage and a first-class boaters lounge. We’re excited to announce the hiring of local boater and entrepreneur Ken Johns as our new General Manager, who will lead the existing team including our well-regarded Office Manager, Wendy Ross.

Shurhold Snap and Zipper LubricantWords of exasperation wafting across a marina often signal a boat owner fighting with a jammed zipper or snap that won't catch. This frustrating situation is simple to avoid by using Snap Stick from Shurhold. Made in the USA, the easy-to-apply lubricant keeps marine fittings working smoothly for up to three months and reduces stress levels around the docks.

A unique, wax-like formula, Snap Stick lubricates and protects plastic and metal snaps, zippers, hinges and other small hardware from the effects of harsh marine environment exposure. Unscented, non-toxic and biodegradable, it won't harm fabrics and other boat surfaces. Non-soluble, it doesn't rinse off when exposed to rain and spray, or boat washing.
