Fall Boating Tips
Those who have boated after Labour Day can attest to just what a beautiful experience it can be. The colours are spectacular in their shimmering reflections. Pristine anchorages jam packed during July and August can be enjoyed in relative solitude. For anglers, the action is hot as fish actively feed ahead of the freeze over.
If the vessel is going to be out of the water during the winter months, ensuring it's in a climate-controlled storage area or shrink-wrapped are the two best options.
Register Today for Fall/Winter Online Boating Courses
There's no better time to beef up your boating skills than when we have the boats tucked away for their long winters nap. There are courses available from coast to coast on varying topics and you can view them by looking at boatingcourses.ca. CPS-ECP is now happy to offer a selection of courses delivered online and you can learn where ever you may be, even on the deck of a boat in the sunshine perhaps?
Why Should I Take A Boating Course?
When it comes to operating a boat, especially a power boat, personal watercraft or sailboat, we often ask the same question and the answer we get is usually very different. Most people believe that operating a boat is much easier that operating a car and we would respectfully suggest that this is far from the truth.
