Re: Lake Ontario winter haul options

Thanks for the update Degas, and congrats on the new boat. We left Belleville a few years ago now, but if we’re staying I was considering moving down to Bath’s Loyalist Cove Marina. The prices looked good and we ran into a few people who had nothing but good things to say about the operation. Small, DIY yard. Something to consider if you’re in the area.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

Before buying I did a bunch of research for winter storage and a summer slip. There are other places on the east end of Lake Ontario but here are the ones I checked out:

Iroquois Marine Services: 5 minutes off the 401, big fenced storage yard with electricity and water, diesel, transient docks, mast crane, bathrooms/showers, a couple of shelves of chandlery essentials. Not sure of the travel lift capacity but there are some comparably-sized boats to yours. It's a bit out of the way from the popular 1000 Island spots. The town of Iroquois itself is lovely but tiny, with no chandlery or even a hardware store.

Kingston Marina: Downtown, pretty much as full service as it gets. Big fenced storage yard with electricity and water, diesel, gas, pumpout, transient & seasonal docks, mast crane, bathrooms/showers, travel lift, crane, even a dry dock. 10 minute walk to amenities including West Marine.

Crate Marine: Next to downtown Belleville, also full service. Big fenced storage yard with electricity and water, diesel, gas, pumpout, transient & seasonal docks, brand new 50-ton travel lift, a satisfactorily stocked chandlery, bathrooms/showers/laundry, mechanics, fiberglass repair/detailing, canvas. 15 minute walk to amenities. No mast crane but I'm told that the sailboat owners at the marina get together to rent one as needed.
I hauled my 24000 pound boat at Iroquois Marine Service a couple times. Very DIY freindly yard with excellent staff.

Collins Bay Marina is also a big yard. I havent hauled out there but we have stayed there and had a good experience.

Re: Lake Ontario winter haul options

Maybe wandering off-topic now but if you don't mind a trip down the St-Lawrence, this might help future searches.

Kenmont Marine: On the South Shore canal of St-Lawrence Seaway with a view of Montreal, 10 minute drive from the infamous Mercier Bridge. I stored my boat here for 6-7 years. Big fenced yard with electricity and water, interior storage too, mast crane, travel lift, porta-potty, security guard. 5 minute drive to amenities. No nearby chandlery, no docks, no fuel, no pumpout, no transient or seasonal dock.
