The annual Portage Lakes Boat Parade will resume this year after a two-year pandemic hiatus, organizers announced Friday.

A Cleveland Cavaliers-themed boat with a boarding craft participates in the 2016 Portage Lakes Boat Parade.

The July 9 event was at risk of being canceled in part due to confusion over its status. But parade fans formed a committee to organize the event and registrations have now exceeded the minimum of 10, said committee member Michael Boyle. Friday afternoon, 12 boats were on board.

“Having had a late start, people weren’t sure it was going to happen,” he said in a phone interview on Friday. “…(But) we know the parade is definitely happening at this point.”

As of Memorial Day weekend, he said, the parade was stalled due to a lack of volunteers to plan it.

But Boyle and other local residents who wanted the boat parade to go again formed the committee to organize it and solicit entries. The couple who own and operate Shriner Marine on Turkeyfoot Lake Road have taken the lead, handling boat owner bookings.

“Andy and Danielle Shriner, they stepped up to help coordinate it and move it forward,” Boyle said.

Dani Lenarz-Lamer, another committee member, said when she inquired about the event earlier this year, she was surprised it was not on the Association’s agenda. Portage Lakes fireworks.

The organization plans the annual Lakes Fireworks Show, but hadn’t planned for the Parade of Boats, which takes place during the day and leads to the nighttime fireworks.

“How come they don’t have it this year?” Lenarz-Lamer said when she found out. “This year, I thought we would be operational. (But) it wasn’t.

A long-standing business with one of the best “offices” in the area is for sale.

Craig and Kerrie Chandler have decided to sell Bill’s Boat Hire in Golden Beach after six years at the helm of the 66-year-old business.

Kerrie said they enjoyed their time on the waterway, but were looking forward to travelling.

She said there was a “wonderful opportunity” for someone else to take over.

“The last six years have been a highlight for us.”

“We really enjoyed every moment.

“Our goal has always been to spend five or six years in the company and develop it.

“We introduced new products, renewed the fleet and introduced a digital platform.

“We raised the bar and it’s now the #1 thing to do in Golden Beach on Trip Advisor.

“But we think now is the time to move on and start the next chapter, because we’ve achieved everything we set out to do.”

Bill’s Boat Hire kayaks on a pristine section of the passage.

Kerrie said the biggest asset was the business’s idyllic location.

“It’s in one of the best offices on the Sunshine Coast,” she said.

“Overlooking the tip of Bribie Island, with Pumicestone Passage and Caloundra as a backdrop, it is stunning.”

It is based at 1 The Esplanade, operating in the northern passage of Pumicestone, between the new Bribie bar to the south and the old Caloundra bar to the north.

Boaters can enjoy calm conditions and stunning views and they can moor their boat on the island for relaxing day trips.

The company operates from five moorings and has three barbecue pontoon boats, a fishing pontoon boat, half-cabin canisters, stand-up paddle boards and single and double kayaks, as well as a new bicycle. on four wheels.

A rental boat on calm waters.

Bill’s Boat Hire was established in 1956 by Bill Aspen, who chose the company logo and the colors white and red, which remain today, to match the old Caloundra lighthouse.

The business has only had a handful of owners and is believed to be one of only two local businesses to have operated in the same location for so long – the other being Henzells estate agency, which operates from Bulcock Street for over 70 years.

“It’s a proven company,” Kerrie said.

“There were about six boat hire companies in Caloundra, but Bill’s Boats is the only one that survived.

“(The last few years) we’ve been through COVID, cyclones and an island breakout and we’re still here and going strong.”

Craig and Kerrie Chandler at the base of their business on the shores of Golden Beach.

When the breakthrough happened earlier this year, the Chandlers feared their business might not survive, but conditions in the northern passage turned favorable and provided them with a beautiful area to work with.

“It’s become a beautiful, calm lagoon in this area,” Kerrie said.

“We don’t have raging currents at 12 knots. It’s perfect for things like SUPs and kayaking.

Craig and Kerrie took over the business in 2016.

“Craig lived across from Bill’s Boat Hire when he was young and often helped the owner pull the boats to the beach,” Kerrie said.

“Then one day, as we were returning home from a three-year hiatus on the West Coast, we heard it was for sale.

“Craig said ‘this is an absolute dream come true for me and I would love to buy it.’

“So, we did it, and we built it.

“But now we hope to be able to hook up the caravan and do some trips to Queensland. It’s the only state we haven’t traveled to.

Stand up paddle, with Bill’s Boat Hire in the background.

Kerrie said they can’t wait to pass the business on to someone who will cherish it as much as they do.

“It’s not just a fleeting 12 month turnover and you’re gone. It’s an opportunity to sit back and really enjoy this tourist component of Caloundra,” she said.

“You meet so many happy customers who are full of anticipation. They get out on the water and really enjoy it.

“And because it’s an iconic company, it has to stand with the community.

“He has generations of loyal customers who return year after year.

“There are people who used to come here as kids, now bringing their grandkids.”

Their area of ​​operations includes the area around the northern tip of Bribie Island.

The Chandlers were hoping to do a private sale.

“We’ve already received many inquiries,” Kerrie said.

“We have an idea of ​​what their visions are.

“It’s an iconic company, so we want it to go into good hands rather than someone with deep pockets.

“It’s about finding the right people who want to continue to spread the good name of Bill’s Boat Hire.

“Hopefully they can even raise the bar with the business, because there is still room for growth.”

CHRISTINA WILLIAMSON/THE EXPRESS

After a day filled to the brim with activities on Saturday, the first-ever boat parade on the West Branch of the Susquehanna River and a performance by Aaron Kelly wrapped up Best of Clinton County on Saturday night. More than a dozen boats participated in the parade, organized by Downtown Lock Haven Inc. and member Roz Rebarchak, each decorated with a particular theme. A bathtub-themed boat, owned by Dave Williamson with Alan Madia, Missy Madia and Melissa Grove on board, won the golden propeller and a case of Miller Lite – courtesy of Bald Eagle Beer Distributor – as favorite ship fans. After the boats all docked near the floating stage of the J. Doyle Corman Amphitheater, Kelly kicked off her performance with a song titled “Pontoon.” Due to high winds, the lighting of the lantern, which was to take place during Kelly’s intermission, has been postponed to a later date.

A man jumped from a dock into a lake in western Minnesota and died trying to save his dog, authorities said Monday.

The death, described as a suspected drowning, occurred around 1:15 p.m. Saturday on South Lida Lake, located about 7 miles east of Pelican Rapids, the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office said.

The deceased man has been identified as Eric Fife, 48, who lived near the lake. The sheriff’s office said the dog survived.

Fife entered the water with a seat pad designed to be used as a flotation device, while the dog did not have a canine life jacket, sheriff’s Lt. Greg Seim said.

According to the sheriff’s office:

Fife and his friends were boating on the lake when the dog jumped into the water and he went to get his pet.

“Moments later, it became apparent to his companions that Mr. Fife was in distress and struggling to stay above the water,” a statement from the sheriff’s office read.

One of the friends entered the lake and brought Fife and the dog back into the boat, where CPR began.

When the boat arrived at a lake access point, rescuers took over rescue efforts, but Fife died at the scene.

A boat launch on the BARWON River will get a much-needed upgrade in time for the summer.

The City of Greater Geelong has received $120,000 from state government agency Better Boating Victoria (BBV) to refurbish the damaged north pier of the Ocean Grove boat launch.

COGG would contribute at least 20% of the overall funding cost as per grant guidelines and has until November to deliver the upgrade so that it is ready for the peak summer period.

BBV provided the funding this month from a $1.7 million maintenance funding round statewide.

“These grants will ensure ramp managers have the funds to upgrade and maintain their facilities, which will also benefit the thousands of Victorians who use them each year by improving accessibility and increasing safety,” said the Minister of Health. Fishing and Navigation, Melissa Horne.

“This is another fantastic example of how we are implementing the Victorian boating license and boat registration fee, achieving strong results by reinvesting in boating infrastructure and other programs.”

Elsewhere on the Bellarine, the Point Richards boat launch near Portarlington is undergoing the second stage of a $3.7 million upgrade in time for this summer, which includes the construction of a groyne rocky to protect it from algae buildup.

Construction of a third boat launch and floating pontoon at Queenscliff is due to be completed within weeks, while the state agency is also planning an overhaul of facilities at St Leonards.

The term “discoverer guardians” is about as forensically substantial as the rhymes, songs, and writings of centuries ago when the term first appeared. Nautilus Insurance

It’s an entertaining phrase but one that doesn’t stack up in a courtroom. Nautilus Insurance

The last time we had flooding that washed away all manner of items, including boats and pontoons, in Moreton Bay and beyond, a number of social media warriors asked if they had the right to keep the things they “found”, including a person who thought an aluminum canoe might now be his.

Without thinking for a moment how he might feel if the positions were reversed – if he had lost the canoe rather than finding it – he used terms such as “finders’ keepers” and “rescue” in an effort to substantiate his request.

Perhaps using social media to ask unqualified people legal questions is enough of an indication of the person’s intellectual capacity in the first place.

However, as a preview, you can’t automatically keep something because you “found” it and that’s before we even consider what “found” might mean.

As a responsible citizen, you have a moral and legal obligation to seek out the original owner of anything you claim to have now “found”.

You can’t just hang it up and take it home. Nautilus Insurance

Likewise, if you are on the water and find a boat adrift, the first thing before rushing to retrieve it is to consider your capabilities, those of your crew and your ship to undertake the rescue plan. you are considering.

Besides the safety factor, you could also put your boat insurance policy at risk if your boat and engine are not designed to undertake such recovery.

Logically, many maritime rescue groups have the training, equipment and vessels built specifically to undertake such rescues and recoveries.

Back to your “finding” and claiming ownership – in many cases, formally contacting the police and reporting the find may be your most logical first step.

They have access to resources that can increase the chances of finding the rightful owner and facilitate the return of the asset.

Along the same lines, that pontoon or boat you “find” may not technically be the legal property of the registered owner.

A finance company, another person, a corporation, the ship’s insurer – any number of entities could potentially hold a lien or legal right to this property before the ‘finder’.

And it’s not just boats and pontoons – kayaks, canoes, tenders, expensive safety gear and a myriad of other items could roam our waterways for quite some time.

Our responsibility as boaters is to ensure they are returned to their rightful owners and to minimize the likelihood of them causing damage to other vessels in the meantime.

Contacting the authorities is therefore your first step. Nautilus Insurance

In terms of salvage law, it is a complicated process and it varies from region to region, as do the laws.

Even in the days of swashbuckling pirates around Key West on the southern tip of America and the Bahamas, there were strict rules.

The rescue of the crew of ships in distress was in many cases a mandatory prerequisite for being authorized to undertake the salvage of the goods they were carrying, and in turn secure a right of ownership over part of them.

So if you want to go down this road, you might be better off consulting a marine lawyer, because you can rest assured that if something of value is missing and in your possession, someone will campaign for the possibility of recovering it.

With respect to your own vessel affected by floods and rain events, what is covered and what may not be covered in terms of losses will be interpreted in accordance with the terms of insurance as set out in the Product Disclosure Statement of your insurance policy.

Similarly, any special conditions and deductibles must always be clearly explained in the DVP of your insurance contract.

If you need more information, you can contact Nautilus Marine Insurance on 1300 780 533 for any boat insurance request.

Many want to go out on a boat, but not everyone can afford it. Here’s a popular way some people do this without breaking the bank.

TAMPA, Fla. — Getting out on the water on a boat in Tampa Bay is becoming increasingly popular thanks in part to what some are calling the Airbnb of boats.

“GetMyBoat is a great platform for people who want to rent boats or book a skippered boat rental, whether for a weekend or several days,” said Val Streif of the rental company.

The service is a mobile application and the largest boat rental in the world. It also offers options in Tampa Bay. Streif says there are over 400 boats for hire locally each day. You can choose from everything from luxury yachts to pontoon boats, jet skis, large deck boats, and more.

Prices range from $75 per hour to a few hundred dollars per hour for a charter boat.

“Groups of families will get together and share the cost of a larger boat, which will end up being a very affordable activity. Much more affordable than buying your own boat. Sometimes those marinas or yacht clubs can also be quite expensive,” Streif said.

Tampa Bay offers a host of boat rental services similar to this one, which makes the Airbnb idea of ​​boats very popular.

If you own a boat and are looking to earn some extra money, you can list it.

Before leaving, Florida law requires a boating safety training course. You can avoid this if you rent a boat with a captain. Not an option for everyone, but something to consider if you’re cruising with a larger group.

LACONIA — At the height of the pandemic, refunded vacations, stimulus checks and the desire for safe outdoor activities drove boat sales up a decade. Yet as gasoline prices more than double from the May 2020 average, supply chain disruptions squeeze supply and inflation pinches budgets, people are still rushing to marinas for new boats and upgrades.

“The boat market is still very hot,” said Travis Williams, sales manager at Meredith Marina. “Amazingly, there has been no impact on demand for us,” despite drastic price increases for new and used boats, fuel and services.

Nationally, boat sales numbers in 2022 fell slightly after their early pandemic surge, according to data presented by the National Marine Manufacturers Association. Although sales growth has slowed, the number of boat sales remains well above its pre-pandemic level.

“We see sales beginning to normalize after unprecedented sales growth in 2020 and 2021 and as competition for consumer spending among goods and services intensifies,” wrote Sarah Salvatori, corporate communications and public relations with NMMA, in an email. “While we expect boat sales to be down this year from the past two years of record sales, we expect boat sales in 2022 to still meet or exceed pre-pandemic levels.”

In 2021, national boat sales were down more than 5% from 2020, when sales hit their highest peak in 13 years, according to NMMA. The first quarter of 2022 saw 54,000 new motorboat sales: this is a 20% drop from 2021 but still well above 2019, when there were 45,000 such sales in the first quarter.

That decline may be on its way to the Lake District, but it hasn’t happened yet. Demand for boats still greatly exceeds supply, handicapped by supply shortages around the world.

“In June and July 2020, people cleaned us up once the boating season started. They thought boating was a safe activity,” said Irwin Marine President Bruce Wright. “Since then, we have struggled to get inventory ahead of demand.”

Most new boat purchases since the start of the pandemic have taken place before marinas have even received boats from manufacturers.

Pontoon boats and wakesurf boats, some of the boat types Meredith Marina specializes in, are among the most popular, according to NMMA.

A 24-foot ATX surf boat, a high-end and in-demand model, Williams said, was sold for 2022 in March. If a buyer in April of this year wanted to buy this specific boat, it wouldn’t arrive until 2023.

Supply chain delays don’t affect all boats equally and some boat models are more available than others, Williams noted, but deliveries are down overall.

“I can get maybe 50% of the boats I ask from builders,” he said.

“If there’s a boat close to what you’re looking for at a reasonable price, buy it,” Williams advised potential buyers. “Or learn to be patient.” To facilitate this process, Williams offers people who trade in their boats for upgrades to continue using their current boat until the one they purchased arrives.

Prices for used boats have also jumped, especially when the newest model runs out of stock, Williams said.

Although Irwin customers are still buying boats before they arrive, there has been some decrease in the number of such requests, according to Wright.

“We see a decrease in future demand,” Wright said, adding that “we’re still well above 2019.”

Wright said the pandemic-related boom could wane or the growing financial and logistical challenges of boat ownership could cause potential buyers to reconsider. “We’re looking to see what the new normal is…we recognize that these trends won’t last forever,” he said.

Williams saw no signs of falling demand due to costs, but thinks people are changing their browsing habits to reduce spending. Maybe boat owners are turning off their engines instead of idling and looking for destinations closer to where they board to save gas, he said.

According to the New Hampshire Marine Patrol, registrations have grown steadily over the past few years and show no signs of slowing down: Statewide there were approximately 96,000 registrations in 2019, compared to 101,000 in 2020 and 106,000 in 2021. Year-to-date, there have been around 79,000, surpassing last year’s number. Marine Patrol Sergeant Nicholas Haroutunian said he expects this year’s total enrollment to at least match, and more likely exceed, last year’s record number.

NMMA said first-time buyers are driving the growth in boat sales, with a record number of first-time buyers entering the market in 2021 and accounting for 34% of overall sales.

As the number of boats and boat owners increases, docks, slipways and other places to house boats remain coveted, and those who do not yet have a boat are unlikely to be able to find storage on the water in their budget, if at all.

Meredith Marina and many of its peers offer a valet parking service, where boats are stored in a garage and transported through the water for customers who notify the marina when they want to use their boat. Williams said the service is ideal for new owners because, with marina staff on hand, it’s easy to have questions answered and problems resolved. However, due to the demand and scarcity of garage spaces, valet prices have increased in kind.

The inability to find a place to store and access the boats could deter some from buying. “There’s not a lot of room on the lake,” Wright said. “So maybe it would be a good thing if demand stabilized.”

“It would be nice to have an inventory on the ground to show people,” he added.
