To celebrate the very real possibility that we have a new boat and that we will be cruising south to the Bahamas on our own bottom in the Fall of 2015, we have revamped Searching for C-Shels web presence.

C-Shel has left the Rideau. Last year, given all the talk of the mismanagement of the system by Parks Canada, we thought there might be a mass exodus of boaters off the system to the 1000 islands, St. Lawrence River. This we thought, would cause a shortage of available dock space in the 1000 Islands region, so we decided to get ahead of the game and put our name on the 3 year waiting list at Gananoque Municipal Marina. So instead of 3 years going by, about half a year did. Gan Marina called us and said we have a slip on a set of new docks that are going to replace the break wall, it will have a wonderful view, and will be ready for spring 2014. Since we are the type of people who seem to thrive on change we decided to take the slip. I am able to live and work aboard for the summer, so commuting from Ottawa to Gananoque wouldn't be an issue, it seemed like the right thing to do.
We finally got around to doing a video walk-through of the C-Shel. This was taken in June 2014. View it here.
Summer 2013 was a rather quiet and reflective boating season on the Rideau. Here is a little of the ambiance the Rideau so graciously provides.
