6-Day Lockage Permit

This permit shares the characteristics of the Seasonal Lockage Permit above, and is intended for folks who only require 6 days of lockage in a season. These 6 days do not need to be consecutive, making this permit an excellent value for someone with fewer days available to spend on the water.

If you plan on navigating Parks Canada’s locks on more than 6 days in a season, the Seasonal Lockage Permit may be the best option for you.

Transit One-Way Lockage Permit

Transit One Way Lockage

This permit allows the boater to travel through the entire Trent-Severn Waterway or the entire Rideau Canal system on a one-way passage. Boaters looking to make a return trip or traverse both systems should opt for the Seasonal Lockage Permit.

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.

Many of their descendants still live in the area.

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