POTW: Gordie Scores Soon

Gordie Bridge

Oct 26, 2023

Alex Lister caught a series of shots of construction on the Gordie Howe International Bridge, which will provide more capacity to the heavily trafficked border crossing between Windsor and Detroit. This artistic capture has to be our Photo of the Week!

Boaters on the Detroit River have been craning skyward at the construction. When completed, it will include a clear centre span of 853 metres over the River with the six-lane deck 46m above the water (even your mast will have clearance!)

Here’s a look at the whole impressive project as of now.

Thanks to our SW Ontario point man, Roger Renaud, for forwarding this stunning pic.

You too can be a famous photographer by sending your photos to or POTW mailbox.  boating shots of any sort – kids, pets, signs, ports, regattas, winter, sunsets etc, etc.  Just send your shots onboard@kerrwil.com and put POTW in the subject line please.  Looking forward to seeing yours!

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
