Cameron WardlawCameron Wardlaw in front of Skyline Marina in Woodbridge

The Canadian boating industry lost one of the great ones this past week. Cameron Wardlaw sadly passed away in Barrie at the age of 81.

John Kerr of Kerrwil Publications wrote. “Cameron was so active in all aspects of the recreational boating industry with his energy and effort, he contributed greatly to the foundations this industry relies on today. As the Owner of Skyline, he pioneered and pushed the envelope in creating an integrated, dynamic and powerful dealership.”

“On a personal note as a young media rep, I remember the many times I visited with him and his team over the years and I often remember the quiet coaching and input he offered, as we steered Canadian Yachting though some choppy waters in our earlier days. He helped us a lot and the confidence he gave us meant a ton.”

“Fixed and focused and truly the entrepreneur, would be how I remember him, as well as for his graceful kindness on so many fronts. Cameron Wardlaw, we hope, will be remembered for he did for all of us in the boating industry.”

Cameron WardlawFounder and operator of Skyline Marina for over 50 years, Cameron Wardlaw passed away peacefully in Barrie on January 27th 2020, in his 81st year.

Lovingly remembered by Julia.
He will be dearly missed by his sister Carole and her husband Alan Ward, niece Ruthanne, nephew Cameron and his wife Alex.

Friends were received at the Ward Funeral Home, on Friday January 31st. A Celebration of Life will be held on Georgian Bay in the summer. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Alzheimer Society of Toronto would be greatly appreciated. Please visit https://alz.to/ to donate

UPDATE ON LUXURY TAX OPPOSITION

 

Luxury Tax OppositionFollowing its seventh annual “Day on the Hill” lobby day in Ottawa last month, NMMA Canada is continuing to advocate against the federal government’s proposed 10% luxury tax on recreational boats over $100,000. History has shown that similar taxes have failed to raise the expected revenue for governments while putting thousands of rural and small-town jobs at risk. The industry believes there are other financial measures that can be applied instead of a tax that would be beneficial to government and less impactful on industry.

HUBBELL CIRCUIT TESTER VERIFIES CONNECTIONS WITH EASE

Hubbell Circuit TesterChecking shorepower connections for proper wiring can be time-consuming, especially when working in dimly-lit or difficult-to-access locations. An innovative UL- and CL-listed Twist-Lock Circuit Tester from Hubbell Marine speeds this process by using simple LED visual codes to indicate electrical circuit conditions.

The patented, compact design of the HBLT26CM11 Twist-Lock Circuit Tester closely resembles a standard Hubbell Twist-Lock Plug. Once inserted into a 30A/125V receptacle, its LED back panel immediately displays whether the circuit is complete and properly wired.
