Sea Ray seeker – can our readers help?


I read one of Andy Adam’s Canadian Yachting articles and I hope you can assist. I am a Canadian living in Wasaga Beach, Ontario, but was born in Freeport Bahamas.

I am currently in the process of selling both my car and motorcycle in the hopes I can use the money to buy a used boat probably in the mid 80s to mid 90s based on my research thus far. I like the Sea Ray Sundancer models 29’ and up, and also the Sea Ray aft cabins same year range. if there is any info that you can give me that may help in fulfilling this life long dream of mine to return home and possibly run a day charter business (to start) I’d really appreciate it.

Also any info on possibly joining a crew of a vessel headed from Ontario to the Bahamas (or any sites or numbers) that would help me find that info would be greatly appreciated.

Can you advise where we can watch for local release dates for the film Maiden in theatres in  Edmonton, Alberta, as I can not find anything on the Sony Pictures site indicating any distribution of it here out as far as late November.

It is playing at City Centre in Edmonton at the moment.

By Craig Ritchie

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
