Cobequid Mountain Sports to feature Cobalt at 2017 Halifax International Boat Show

Cobalt 255c

Nov 6, 2016 


Located in the pristine countryside of Cumberland County NS. Cobequid Mountain Sports has been expanding its watercraft craft line for the past several years. Founded in 1965 as a power product company Alex Parker bought the business 5 years ago and expanded into watercraft with SeaDoo, Smoker Craft aluminum boats and Sun Chaser pontoon boats. This year marks a major expansion with the introduction of Cobalt boats to their line-up. As the only Cobalt dealer east of Ontario they have been getting customers from all three Maritime Provinces.

The star attraction at the Cobequid Mountain Sports booth at the 2017 Halifax International Boat Show (Feb. 9-12, Halifax Exhibition Centre) will be Cobalt’s new 25SC. This 2017 model has a wider bow shape than is found on most bowriders. The boat even has a forward ladder to make this the ideal beach boat.

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.
