New member from Georgian Bay

Just thought I would say hi. We cruise in southern Georgian Bay, Ontario, Canada. Purchased a 1982 Campion 300 the end of August. Single diesel with no thrusters. Will be a learning experience for sure. This is my 5th boat and 1st trawler. Can't wait to spend some time on the forum and learn as much as possible.

Welcome aboard TF.
I have to say IMO you have some of the best cruising areas in your backyard and access to many other wonderful cruising grounds.
We spent a couple months in 2019 on TSW and Georgian Bay.

Welcome Aboard. You will surprise yourself on how well the boat handles. You don't need thrusters.

Welcome aboard. We went through that area when we brought our boat home from Virginia. Beautiful area. We hope to be able to return to Canada and the North Channel some day soon.
