Spring 2017 Newsletter

 

goodbye winter…                          

 

                       hello spring...

 

 

 

Or so we thought!  Just when you think Spring is around the corner, a cold snap hits and you’re ice-skating across the Big Sound for miles!  The extremely cold temperatures during March Break ended winter with hundreds skating on a sheet of glass, playing pond hockey and enjoying the unique once-in-a-lifetime experience created by Mother Nature.  Quite a change since it didn’t freeze all winter!


Spring is finally here and we can’t wait to get this season started.  We will be launching hundreds of boats in a short time span and would like to remind you of our Spring Launching Policy.  We require a minimum of two week’s notice to prepare your boat for the season. 

 

We are pleased to present our Sea Value Program enabling us to provide marine products, parts and accessories at very competitive rates.  Please pick one up in our Marine Store.  An online link is also available on our website at www.ParrySoundMarine.com. 

 

 

 

Just a few reminders to start off our summer season. 

 

· Our garbage program is convenient and accessible 24-7 for customers.  Please contact the office to join our program at a cost of $85 per season.  Last year we were visited frequently by a wee friend prompting us to order a “bear bin”.  Please do not dispose of garbage in any other part of the marina.

 

· Car parking policy – One parking spot is permitted with each boat slip.  This pass is included with your storage invoice and can be hung on the mirror of your vehicle.  Additional vehicles (whether second family vehicles or guest vehicles) must register in the office for a parking pass at $9 per day and park in our guest lot located on the hill behind the Marine Store.  Please ensure your guests have a valid parking pass and is displayed in their vehicle.  Should your guests arrive after hours, your passes can be purchased in advance, and will be left in our mail box outside the marine office for pick up upon arrival. 

 

· Payment - We are able to accept online payments through e-mail money transfers at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  All payments are required within 30 days.  As a reminder, all overdue accounts will be charged 1.5% per month.

 

· Insurance – please provide us a copy of your annual insurance renewal for our files.  Feel free to or have your Insurer fax a copy to 705-746-7741.

 

· Extra key – please leave a second key for our “key board” located in our office.  If we need to move or service your boat, or should you forget your keys, we always have a back up!

 

· Shore power - Please be mindful of shore power cords whether they are plugged in your boat, or on the dock while you enjoy the Bay.  When power cords are plugged in, electric current is present and dangerous.  All cords must be plugged in tightly and securely; not hanging in the water; and neatly placed on the dock to avoid tripping hazards.  Swimming around vessels plugged in to electrical outlets is very dangerous and potentially fatal.  A short in a boats wiring could allow electricity to enter the water causing what is called “Electric Shock Drowning”.  For these reasons, swimming at the marina is not recommended.

 

We look forward to seeing you this season.  As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions, suggestions or needs. 

 

Cheers to a warm, sunny summer and making many more memories on Georgian Bay.

 

Each and every day… is great when you're on the Bay!!
