Dealer Profile – White Water Marine

Scout 255


May 9, 2016

Located on a spacious lot just off Highway 101 outside of Halifax, White Water Marine is a family business in the truest sense. Les White founded the company in 1986 and today his sons Graham and Brian run the show, although dad still keeps an eye on things. Les’ daughter Patty Gauthier runs the parts department. Several other members of the extended family have also worked at the business over the years.

Given the companies location on the way to many of the provinces best fishing lakes it is not surprising Princecraft boats have been a top seller for many years. This year, in a move to larger glass boats, White Water has taken on the Scout line, including the LX255. They also sell Larson Boats and are full service dealers for Evinrude and Mercury outboards.

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.

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.
