Dan’s boating experience started in Georgian Bay where he spent his summers fishing, sailing along with re-building and repairing boats.
At a young age, Dan would travel in his 10hp boat to the local Marina to work as a dock attendant, renting boats, and maintaining the yard.
Dan has owned and maintained many different vessels of all sizes both sail and power.
He purchased his first keel boat on Lake Ontario in his 20’s, a C&C 29, and raced that year in the Youngstown Regatta.
His passion for boating has taken him up and down the Eastern Sea Board, Erie Canal, Hudson River, Trent System, North Channel, Canals through Birmingham England, most of the Great Lakes, BVI’s and Florida Gulf Coast.
Dan still proudly serves his Yacht Club in Toronto as a Flag Officer & Vice Commodore.
