Hey there, fellow Canucks. Take this opportunity to introduce yourself here. I'll start:

My name is Paul. I live in Canmore, Alberta, about 15 minutes west of Banff and 1 hour east of Calgary. We have a rec property in the East Kootenays of BC, 5 minutes from Wasa Lake. Our boating time is spent on a couple of local lakes out that way- Premier, Wasa and Columbia lakes to be specific.

We own a 1999 190 Signature BR. We bought it in the spring of 2006 from the original owner. The boat only had 62 hours on the clock, and was in virtually new condition!!!

Anyhow, that's my story. Feel free to post up and tell us about you and your boat!!! :thumbsup:

North of the 49th

We reside just south of Ottawa in the village of Osgoode, ON and are fortunate to have a cottage on Adam Lake with access to Big Rideau and the Rideau Canal system. Summers are spent at the family cottage; cutting grass, boating, fishing, cutting grass, sun tanning and did I mention cutting grass.

We ran a 91 Cadorette Nuova 190 for 15 years prior to buying a 98 230 Signature BR equiped with the 7.4 and BIII leg. The boat had 98 hours and spent its time on a rail lift. I could go on for hours with how pleased I am with this Sea Ray but I won't bore you with all of that.

Should any of our Southern Neighbours venture up the Rideau, drop us a line and we will meet for a malted beverage.

Vancouver here. Just bought a 2003 200 Select with 5.0 MPI Alpha I. Black, tower, Corsa and speakers everywhere. Just over 200 hours. Looks great.

Our first boat. We went with SR because of the long and reliable history of the local M&P dealership. I also decided i wanted something really nice. I like good equipment. Lexus truck, Yamaha sleds, Sea Ray Boat... seems consistent.

We're just learning where to go. Its only a BR, so its a little much to ask of it to go island hopping around the Gulf Islands. The boat will handle it, but we probably couldn't. Also, is specs out at 21', but that includes the swim platform, so really its about a 19.5 footer. Love that 8.5' beam though.

The boat is in the garage - barely. So far we've delighted in taking the boat down the the Vanier Park launch at the entrance to False Creek. I can be in water in 20 minutes from hook up. We did this last night and launched at 9:00 pm! Its that easy and that nice. We were also overwhelmed with the beauty of Indian Arm last week.

If any one has suggestions of areas to explore, we'd love to hear it.

I have to say this boat has brought unexpected side benefits. I've lived in the is neighbourhood for 6 years and know most of the people to see them and offer or acknowledge a smile or nod. But there hasn't been much interaction.... until i park the boat on the street and wash it. People just can't walk by. They all stop to talk. What a blast!
 
Barrie Ontario here

Just north of T.O.

Great boating area. We are on Lake Simcoe which connects to Georgian Bay and then into the great lakes not to mention the million smaller bodies.

So anyway Hey fellow cunucks

Oh and just love my SR

Cheers

Although I'm not a Canuck, we love traveling to your fine British Columbia waters.
We usually make 8-10 trips over the summer into the Gulf Islands and 2-3 trips further North to the Sunshine coast. This year the far north trip will only be 1 Big one, and more Southern BC/San Juan Islands trips
 
We boat out of Georgian Bay and have travelled much of the Great Lakes and the Trent Severn system. Just purchased a Sea Ray in Michigan so we're anxious to bring her around on the May two-four weekend.
 
Hey! Ontario, in the house!

We boat on the lovely Georgian Bay, with our marina in Penetanguishene. Endless secluded anchorages, great people and scenery to make your heart go pitter patter!

We're enjoying Club SeaRay, having moved over from the Bayliner Owner's Club last year. Lots of informative topics and some great ideas/suggestions.

Great to be here!

Hello all you other snowbound boaters.

Great to find this forum. We've been boating for over 10 years in southern BC, both salt and fresh, and have been SeaRay owners for over a year now. We really like our boat. Very seaworthy, and comfortable. We are moored in Port Moody and have access to the whole southern coast.

Looking forward to sharing with you all on this forum.
 
Thanks for adding to the thread, Gregg. That makes 7 of us.............LOL!!!!

FWIW, I'm no longer in Canmore. I tranferred and moved to Cochrane this summer. We're only 40 minutes away from Canmore, so it wasn't that big a move.

Good morning fellow Canucks.

We live in LaSalle, ON. Centrally located on the Detroit River midway between Lake Erie and Lake St. Clair. This is our second full season with "bouttime" and are having the time of our lives visiting many ports and anchorages in our home waters.

My dream trip is Georgian bay and the North Channel. From what I hear from others who have made the trip is that after several years you will still find new jewels. My plan would be to trailer to Penetanguishine or Midland and head out from their then I would save the 2-3 days on each end just getting there and back home.

I had a short stint on the west coast several years ago. Lived on Bowen Island just off the coast from Horseshoe Bay (near Vancouver). Ran a water taxi in the Howe Sound area and always thought this area would be fantastic to retire aboard a nice big trawler with no fixed address.

You got that right. That area's beautiful
 
This is an interesting thread
We are out of Bayfield , ON- have cruised the North Channel and are planning to go to Lake Simcoe this summer.
- New to Powerboating but have done lots of other boating.

Dec 6 2008 Update - did not make Lake Simcoe but went to the North Channel instead.
Oct 30 2010 Update - well sold the 340 and upgraded last spring to a 390MY - and move to Grand Bend

Try to hit Chiefs Island (5 min north of Lake Simcoe) on a long weekend (if you like to party). Great times!
 
Grew up on Lake Erie (Port Dover Ontario), moved to Lake Simcoe 3 yrs ago, now living in Ohio so we will be boating on Lake Erie again.... still boat shopping though as we sold ours in Canada before we moved to the US.
 
Boat shopping - does it ever end? We've had ours less than 2 years and I already want to move up. I'm targeting a 95-97 330 Dancer with inboards and a gen. Just have to figure out how to get the admiral to work 18 hours a day instead of 14.
