The second annual Canadian Yachting Magazine Port Credit Spring Boat Show was held over the weekend at the Port Credit Village Marina. Friday was a spectacular Day followed by good Saturday and then a lousy cold and rainy day Sunday. That said a strong flow of boaters seeking to see a wide selection of new and old sail and power yachts carried out through the whole weekend. The first two days had a festive feeling and the exhibitors enjoyed the crowds that came through the show. But on the Sunday the visitors coming to look at the boats for sail were a hardier group and foul weather gear was worn by most. 

All said the show was a strong success the vendors and boat dealers are already setting the stage is for next year’s Spring boat show/

Compass works when electronics don’t

As a back-up to modern electronics, it’s a vital navigational tool that belongs on every commercial and recreational boat.
