As Jim said, if you are on the fence now is the time while there are still slips available. It is going to be a great time.

Rendezvous….new information!!

I have a few important items for those attending the Rendezvous in Orillia in August. I just spoke with the Harbour Master in Orillia to bring him up to date on our numbers and dockage payment. I will be providing the Harbour Master with a list of our attendees, boat size and name. He has agreed to wait until your arrival at the marina to make payment. The dockage is pay for 2 nights and get the third night free. The rate is $1.75 Canadian per foot and includes hydro (shore power to our USA attendees). If you are arriving before or wanting to stay after the Rendezvous you will need to make those specific reservation dates on your own.

While talking with Allan he said he would hold 5 more slips for us until June 15th. So if your names are not on the list below you still have an opportunity to attend. Call and or email me with your intentions or questions.

Lastly but most importantly I want to thank our sponsors and encourage you to thank them in your own way. Global Marine Insurance, Lefroy Harbour Marine Ranger Tugs dealer and Fluid Motion….parent company of Ranger Tugs and Cutwater Boats.

Jim: I'd be interested in knowing the boat model for each attendee. :)

Also, how on earth does one get hydro == shore power ?

From Google I see...
Hydro is a common phrase among Canadians when referring to electricity. Most likely, it is still used today out of habit. However, it was commonly associated with electricity obtained from dams on rivers, water falls, etc. ... “Hydro” is a Canadian cultural term for electricity and gas.

The company we get electricity from is call Ontario Hydro. Started when all power came from Niagara Falls. Thus shortened to Hydro.

Most of our electricity in the PNW comes from Hydro as well.... but for whatever reason the "shore power" term is what is used here. Next time I talk with my Marina operations office I will test their knowledge and use the "Hydro" term with them over a fee coffee at their office. :lol:

Thanks John for the "Hydro" explanation. Barry, I'm going to bet you a cup of coffee that you'll win your marina office bet? Also Barry I will be posting the brand and size once all forms have arrived and registration has closed.

Hi Jim,

First off I wanted to say how much I enjoyed your book. I read it on my computer while flying to Vegas a few months back.
My wife and I currently have a 28 ft Carver, and have been looking at upgrading sometime in the next couple of years.
We discovered Ranger Tugs three years ago at the Toronto Boat show, and just fell in love with them.
I'm curious what the policy is for non-owners visiting the Rendezvous.
I'd like to see the boats and hopefully get to talk with some of the owners.
Do you happen to know if there will be any boats from Lerfroy Harbour on display?

Regards
irobertson

We have ordered a new 2019 R-29CB delivered this October to Key Largo. We will be trailing it up to Chicago for the summer. We would be very interested in the Ontario Rendezvous next summer. Please keep us posted.

Next years Rendezvous location has not been decided yet, most likely back in the North Channel or maybe MAckinaw Island. When we do nail things down we post here on Tugnuts under “get together/Rendezvous.... so you’ll want to be check in here every so often.

Congratulations on your new boat.

Glad to see we have interest in next years Rendezvous already. No formal plans are made yet other then we do plan on having a 2019 event. When things get firmed up I’ll post on Tugnuts for those interested so you will know and be able to let us know of your interest in attending. I’ll also come back to this post to retrieve names of those like Stu, Sonny and others that would like to attend. Most likely the 2019 event will be in Northern Michigan or Ontario’s North Channel.
