    Canvas on a 330 sig hard top

    Great, this will be my winter research. Plan to do it next dpring. Love the sctual look, but need more space for rainy days at the anchor

    Canvas on a 330 sig hard top

    Ours is 2013, with full bed. We started to anchor a lot in georgean bay for 1 or 2 weeks, or even simply for a weekend. It was a big plus for us to have the bed set up all the time! it fits a family of 4 (2 young kids) but would have love having a beam in the 13’ instead of 10’. Cruisers are widers.

    Forward Facing Sonar (Is It Finally Here?)

    Agree that this is useless in known water, but the topic here was about unknown water. We spent 2 weeks on the boat, in Georgian bay, outside of the known perimeter. Staying in the channel, with marker, well documented in charts and GPS is totally fine, but not when to start to explore and go anchoring in some bays Georgian bay has really dark water and not question about good sharp eyes or not, you see nothing.

    Forward Facing Sonar (Is It Finally Here?)

    Thank you for your comment but not sure how it is helping anything here.... No one is saying that good preparation, going slow in unknown water or circumstance(are you really going 35 plus at night? just another technology to help navigating from my perspective, like by depth sounder, compass or else...

    Forward Facing Sonar (Is It Finally Here?)

    Thank you Richard and others for the links and feedback. This is exactly what I was looking for. Our need of a front sonar is mainly when we go out of the main channel, where nothing is specify on the charts, or GPS. We always prepare the navigation before firing the engine, but some nice bays in Georgian are tricky, and not well marked. We avoided them this year but saw some boats there. Some of the couple we met recommended the front sonar And of course, exploration means low speed Looks like this will be my winter project and one of the item on my boat show list!

    what bow sonar?

    Hi all, Enjoying some really good time in Georgian Bay. First time and wonder why we waited such time before doing this. When staying in channels, all is fine. But when you want to explore, or access some special bays, you can see rocks and smell the danger. Someone recommended us a bow sonar, to have a clear view of what is underneath when leaving the channel. Does anyone have some, did any research or have any recommendation? We have a garmin GPSMap 721 - anything I can plug in or separate? Thank you!

    Towing a PWC with a 330 sig

    LOL 5 sea doos wow! we checked with the dealer when buying this toy and they are going to put a valve to avoid water into cylinders while towing. Just need a trick to remember to switch it back when having fun with it

    Towing a PWC with a 330 sig

    Hello all! Back from the Toronto boat show... with a seadoo :):) planning to have fun around the marina but would like to tow it too on the lake and trent severn river. I saw a nice system Towdster (www.towdster.com) but this is only US and didn't find any here in Ontario. Does anyone have some experience? Ultimate project for the summer is to use the pic to flyboard :):) http://www.ontarioflyboard.ca - Thank you !!!

    Store inflatable in the engine compartment??

    LMAO!!!! yes we are on Simcoe lake and use to trip on the Severn trent river, south or north. unfortunately wife doesn't like to have a RIB permanent on the stern of the boat, plus no more access to the swim platform for kids. for a couple of trips a year, hard sale. I looked at the seaweed davit, which allows to have the dinghi kept horizontal, and offset of the swim platform, but quite expensive

    Will be using the RIB once or twice a seasons during big trip. I looked at various davit system (prefer the seaweed actually) but not sure I want to have this on my boat permanent for my only usage
