VC 17 Discontinued.

Recent changes to environmental guidelines have resulted in the old faithful VC17 bottom paint being discontinued. AkzoNobel (Interlux) Is working on a replacement and is recommending VC offshore as a replacement. Details will follow as to compatibility and preparation requirements.

We do not have VC17 available for sale nor do our suppliers.

Around the Yard during the Winter
  • If you are using heat in the boat make sure it is well vented and turned off when you leave.
  • Boats are not to be left plugged to shore power while unattended. Most of the power is turned off around the Marina in the winter.
  • Tie your ladder off.
  • There are no facilities open during the winter so plan ahead.

Winter ahead

Thank you to our customers and staff for another successful season at the Marina.

Things are eerily quite as the boats rest in their cradles and there is an unobstructed view of beautiful Colpoy's Bay. As we look forward to next season we hope you all have a safe and happy winter ahead.

As a valued customer we appreciate your business and continued support of the Marina and Yacht Club

Enjoy your boating season!
