The Maritime Museum of BC partners with Tradewinds Boaters Exchange at Canoe Cove Marina

Canoe Cove Marina Boaters Exchange

June 29, 2021
With the generous assistance of Canoe Cove Marina, the Maritime Museum of BC has run a thrift store called All Things Marine at Canoe Cove for the past four years. The store has sold donated used marine goods to both reduce unnecessary waste going to the landfill and to raise money for the Museum.

In a new partnership, the Maritime Museum of BC has teamed up with Tradewinds Boaters Exchange who will assume day to day operations of the store. A percentage of sales will continue to support the Maritime Museum of BC, so every dollar spent there helps to preserve and promote BC’s diverse maritime histories and cultures.

“We’re really looking forward to working with Tradewinds Boaters Exchange moving forward,” said Brittany Vis, Executive Director of the Maritime Museum of BC, “We share Tradewinds values of the recycling and reuse of marine goods and are grateful for this opportunity to work with local business.”

Tradewinds has some big plans for the store. “The store is currently undergoing major renovations and will have a distinct nautical theme,” said Steve Ohman, owner and operator of Tradewinds. “We are bringing in new inventory and will be displaying products in a unique way.”

“Canoe Cove is a marine community with a long history,” said Don Prittie, General Manager at Canoe Cove Marina & Boatyard. “All Things Marine has been a great fit here, and we are thrilled that Tradewinds will be taking over while continuing to support the important work of the Maritime Museum. Everyone benefits from this new direction.”

The updated store will be open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 9:00 am to 4:00pm. People can find the store at Canoe Cove Marina through the boat yard to the left.

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive. This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
