Winter Sails Over the Horizon Hoot

Posted on


Cole Lake Location Opens April 1


Yup, the old paddling centre is stuffed to the gunnels with gear and boats, and we’ll be turning on the heat to start up on that most foolish of days. We’re usually open 9-5, 7 days a week but do appreciate you calling (705-203-2955) or setting up an appointment ( BOOK HERE) just so’s we know you’re coming. If you just show up, that’s fine too. Ice oughta be off Cole Lake by mid month, so you can test paddle to your heart’s content. We truly want you to get the right boat, so you can bring it back no sweat for a month after purchase, no guff.

Big cheers to the folks at Delta – Durable, light-weight Canadian boats built right on the left?, wet? west coast:)
