The Cedar Point Boat Show is docked, stocked – and set to go!

The Great Lakes’ biggest floating showcase of power and sailboats, the Progressive North American Demo Boat Show, will drop anchor at Cedar Point Marina for four big days, August 24-27. The long standing love affair the region’s boaters have had with this in-water boat show is the reason it will celebrate its 45th Anniversary this year. “As I see it,” says show manager Bryan Ralston, “the show has always had great drawing cards, like: the first showing of many new models in all size ranges; very attractive end-of-season pricing by dealers on leftover models; freedom for visitors to climb aboard more than 300 power and sailboats; all in a location synonymous with fun and entertainment. It’s a unique venue.” Aside from daily musical entertainment on the Rockin’ Party Barge, more hands-on activities and special events, there are two compelling reasons boaters will flock to the show this year – a first look at 2018 models, and the boat demonstration feature. A major change in the law governing the boating industry’s model year makes it easier than ever for dealers to receive more new 2018’s in time for the show. U.S. Coast Guard regulations have changed to designate June 1 as the start of the new model year. Under the old rules, new models couldn’t be produced until August 1 each year, which made it tough for dealers to get them in time for an August show. The other advantage this show has is its demonstration feature. In recent years, it’s become a hallmark of the show. “No other major in-water show in the country has the demonstration capabilities of this show,” Ralston

Hands-on boating activities add variety and action to the show When visitors to the Progressive North American Demo Boat Show at Cedar Point get tired of climbing aboard 350 power and sailboats, they’ll be able to get hands-on experiences paddling a kayak or docking a powerboat, albeit the latter via a sophisticated simulator. The Akron Power Squadron will again bring its popular fleet of 10 kayaks to the boat show and invite visitors to participate in their “Handson Kayak Experience.” The special interactive exhibit will include daily presentations on basic safe kayaking techniques by Squadron members. This will be followed by the hands-on experience for attendees where they will be free to paddle around a designated in-water area set aside just for them in the boat show. After kayaking, show goers can change pace by heading over to the United States Power Squadrons’ “Boating Skills Virtual Trainer” (BSVT). It’s an interactive, hands-on, virtual boating experience, the result of sophisticated water physics computer software.

But the BSVT is no computer game. It has been strategically developed to compliment USPS on-the-water training programs by essentially requiring the same level of competency. Using the simulator allows students to navigate on-water scenarios where they must contemplate and make decisions using critical thinking. Skippers will take the helm of a simulated Boston Whaler leaving the dock to face various scenarios on a 4-mile-wide lake. To make things more challenging, a USPS instructor can change the wind, current and strength, day or night and other environmental and traffic parameters to test both novice and seasoned skippers. Patterned after pilot training simulators, the BSVT features three computer screens for a rotating field of vision. Realism is also created by the helmsman’s console with steering wheel, Mercury throttles, trim tabs, navigation lights, horn and more. Performance is said to be extremely accurate, especially for subtle boat maneuvers. The boat show will run for four days, August 24-27, at Cedar Point. More than 10,000 boaters from Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania annually attend this event. Show hours will be: Thursday and Friday (Aug. 24-25) – 12 Noon to 7:30 PM; Saturday (Aug. 26) – 11 AM to 7:30 PM; Sunday (Aug. 27) – 11AM to 6:00 PM For the latest updates, go to: www.cedarpointboatshow.com.

Bryan Ralston, “made it a no brainer to do again this year. People really liked it.” The new Boat Show Ferry will run Friday thru Sunday from Sandusky. It leaves from the popular Barrel House located at 101 E Shoreline Drive where there is adjacent free parking. The Ferry cost just $2 per person round trip. Afternoon departures from the Barrel House will be at 2, 3, 4 and 5 p.m. The return trips from the boat show are scheduled for 2:30, 3:30, 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. Want to come by your boat? The Dinghy Dock for boaters choosing to arrive aboard their own boats is being expanded to accommodate more this year. Basically, larger boats anchor out in the harbor and dinghy in to the Dinghy Dock that will accommodate boats under 25 feet including PWC’s and small jet boats. “We also recognize the majority of our show attendees still arrive by car,” said Ralston, “so on all days, attendees who present their same-day Cedar Point parking receipt at the boat show box office will receive one free adult show admission ticket. “Our goal is to give boaters a great experience at the show,” Ralston continued. “Whether it’s a ferry ride or a free adult admission that makes it fun for them, we want everyone to come and explore all the show has to offer.” For the latest updates, go to: www.cedarpointboatshow.com.

Whether you’re rockin’ on the Party Barge or rollin’ aboard more than 350 power and sailboats, you’ll be having a great day at the 2017 Progressive North America Demo Boat Show at Cedar Point. Visitors to this year’s 45th edition will see boats ranging from PWC’s to motor yachts, inflatables to cruising sailboats. In the latter case, one show tradition is the special offer to anyone wanting to find out what sailing is really like. Special “Discover Sailing” rides with a professional captain aboard selected sailboats are scheduled each day. “Discover Sailing” has been conducted annually by the sailing experts from Harbor North, Huron, and more than 500 people have experienced their first sail since the program began. While the captain will dock the “Discover Sailing” boat, show visitors will take their turn at the helm while under sail out in Sandusky Bay. Meanwhile, other visitors will be kicking back on the show’s Party Barge that’s floating amid all the boats displayed in the water. There will be a distinct “islands mon” flavor with live steel drum music by the popular STEELPAN DUO performing Friday through Sunday. Getting to this year’s has never been easier with the renewal of a Boat Show Ferry Service to a show that’s often dubbed the biggest dock party on Lake Erie! “The success of the Ferry idea last year,” explained show manager

Find the latest models from the country’s leading boat builders The latest models from the nation’s boatbuilders will greet visitors to the 2017 Progressive North American Demo Show at Cedar Point, August 24-27. From tri-toons to motor yachts, inflatables to tow boats, and just about everything in between, the boat dealers from around Ohio will be showcasing many of the newest products coming from virtually every major brand. “There’s a boat for every taste,� claims Bryan Ralston, president of the Lake Erie Marine Trades Association. “It why there are so many models and style to choose from. It’s often said a boater’s choice of craft reflects his or her personality. That’s probably true.� Ralston cites, for example, someone who goes for fishing models may be one who likes a challenge. That personality will love this year’s boat show because it will boast a wide range of fishing models from boatbuilders like: Boston Whaler, Regulator, Robalo, Pursuit, Grady White, Sea Fox, Buddy Davis, Tidewater, Parker, Key West, Nautic Star, Eastern, and Sport Craft, to name just a few. If the luxury and comfort of a larger cruising boat is one’s personality, he or she will be climbing aboard the latest from Sea Ray, Formula, Regal, Cruisers, Azimut, Back Cove, Galeon, Prestige, Carver, Tiara, Grand Banks, Seaway and many more. Water sports are big these days reflecting the active, hands-on personality. When those boaters cruise the show docks, they find sport

boats and tow boats to fit any style. A sampling of the major brands on display includes: Four Winns, Regal, Scout, Formula, Cobalt, Mastercraft, Bennington, among others, while the newest dual console models that are skyrocketing in popularity from builders like Pursuit, Robalo, Grady White, Formula and more will be on display. A trademark of this in-water show is the preowned boats that are on display each year. “These are carefully selected boats being shown by the area’s top boat brokers and/or dealers who handle brokerage boats,� Ralston described. “These are primarily cruisers and large sailboats, late models and most are ready for immediate sea trials.� Depending on availability, pre-owned sailboats, for example, may include brands like Jeanneau, Hunter, Tartan, Catalina, Sabre and others. With the newest 2018 models just hitting the market, the boat show will be the first time boaters will get a look at what boatbuilders are bringing out for 2018. New models are the number one reason some 12,000 boaters are expected to attend this year’s event. The boat show runs for four days, Thursday thru Sunday, August 24-27. Show hours will be: Thursday and Friday (Aug. 24-25) – 12 Noon to 7:30 PM; Saturday (Aug. 26) – 11 AM to 7:30 PM; Sunday (Aug. 27) – 11AM to 6:00 PM.

In the fishing and boating world, the name Buddy Davis is legendary. Known throughout the world for its Carolina flare and legendary ride, the Buddy Davis hull is designed to cut through monster head seas, run on rails in following breaking seas, and lie still while drifting in deep troughs. Proving that sheer beauty can be functional, the Davis’ flare is not only a work of art, it delivers a dry ride. The Buddy Davis 28’ Center Console with twin 300 Yamahas carries a deep vee forward and the entry at the bow is definitely sharper than most. The transom has a 24.5 degree deadrise and sports a tumblehome hull side aft. It’s a spectacular center console outboard. The 28 CC remains the best all around sea boat and unquestionably the very driest boat for rough water built anywhere in the world. Visit the Lake & Bay Yacht Sales at the Cedar Point Boat Show to experience the Buddy Davis 28 CC, or contact Ted at 419 656-0408 or lakeandbay@roadrunner.com.

That’s For The Birds LLC offers a revolutionary line of products designed to make boating a little easier. As long time boaters, the developers were always burdened with the inevitable clean up required before they could go out on the water. That chore has been greatly reduced with this product. That’s For The Birds’ #1501 kit is designed to be mounted directly on a bird’s favorite perch– your boat’s railings. It can be deployed in a matter of minutes and will effectively eliminate a bird’s capability of landing on your railings. No birds, no mess. These systems have been refined to blend into their environment, thereby eliminating unsightly and ineffective devices on your boat. They will not scratch or mar your railings and can be used at dock or underway. To install the system one needs to determine how many risers will be need. One kit will service a boat up to 28’. And, easily add more for any larger size boat.

Simply snap the risers into place. Secure the line to the series of risers, being sure to keep the line snug but not to tight. Once the line is in place, it is impossible for a bird to land on the railing because is cannot grasp the line. Sure the birds can land elsewhere on your boat, but by removing their favorite perch, other locations off your boat instantly become more attractive.

Angler’s Angles

MID-AMERICA BOATING | BOAT SHOW PROGRAM ] AUGUST2017

The dog days of summer traditionally mean hard times for Lake Erie walleye anglers. The weather is hot nearly through September, the days often sunny and calm, and many fish have left for cooler Canadian waters or swam east to where it's deeper and equally cool. In the east, it's often necessary to motor long miles north to find fish, and in the western basin, it's sometimes difficult to find any at all. But there are fish remaining in this warmer, shallower water, and sometimes those fish are dandies, old females that might reach 10 pounds or better, along with smaller males of good eating size. The question is why do so few bite under warm, sunny condi-

tions? And the answer is simpler than you might think, though most anglers won't take the necessary advice. Since nearly all Lake Erie walleyes are taken during daylight hours, it would surprise many anglers to know that these predators are actually night feeding fish. They're called "walleye" because their eyes are milky white, ideally suited for night hunting around reefs and near shorelines, and in some clear water lakes in Michigan and Canada they spend their days in deep water holes and don't appear looking for lunch until it's full dark. You fish at night during the hot weather months on such lakes or you don't fish at all. Some Erie anglers are learn-

Night fishing is tops for the dog days of summer

ing that fact, though. One threesome was fishing around Niagara Reef last year in August and catching little. "We had just three walleyes for hours of casting," one said, "and since it was a calm night with no weather coming in, and we didn't have to go home, we decided to anchor just off the reef and stay all night, so we'd be right there come dawn." The trio sacked out on deck after hamburgers on a hibachi, and slept soundly until about midnight when one was aroused by splashes around the boat. He woke the other two, they tied on weight forward spinners and started throwing them in any direction. Color didn't matter, nor did speed of retrieve, and they filled their tickets on very good walleyes in just an hour or less. Another pair went out to fish Gull Reef at night on purpose, leaving Marblehead around 7:00 p.m. with plans to fish all night. Nothing much happened until around 11 p.m., then the reef began boiling with fish. They cast floating Rapalas for their catch, pitching the plugs right onto the reef in just a few feet of water and had amazing fishing. Their best walleye was just short of nine pounds. Night fishing is a prime way of taking Erie walleye and some have learned to try their luck off piers, including the Huron Pier at night, especially later in the year. They trudge out to piers end and cast RattlTraps and other crankbaits with rattle chambers, sometimes until dawn. Tonight, the fish will be in close chasing emerald shiners and shad almost before dark, tomorrow it'll be midnight or 3:00e a.m. and sometimes they don't come at all. A chancy business, but productive when the fish are there. And other piers, some of them very small can produce, too. I tried my own luck at night fishing late last summer with a steady fishing partner and an old timer who loves his walleye fishing. The oldster had his own boat and gear, and we motored out of the Huron River just at dusk. I'll admit it was a spooky business. The only light was from a partially shielded lantern so we could tie on lures and unhook fish, or from shoreside homes and marina lights, and there were other boats out there too, all trolling Night fishing see page 16

and moving slowly past with just boat lights. We started just east of Ruggles Beach, about a mile offshore with our boat captain rigging six lines that held spoons and crankbaits. A couple were on planer boards with dipsey divers, two more were on downriggers, and the last two were flatlined out the back so we could cover various depths and take them high or low. For a while we didn't take them at all. We moved in to within a half mile of dry land and paralleled the shore again, the captain changing lures occasionally, then finally at midnight or so we were in close enough to make me nervous. It was off the Huron Pier that the first strike came, a nice four pounder, then another strike and

another. We swept back up the shore toward Ruggles Beach again, picking a fish here and there, then hit a pocket of hungry eaters that saw three rods bouncing at once. Our final tally, when we quit at 2 a.m. was one fish short of a triple limit, good enough for me and my friends, and far better than anyone was doing during daylight hours. There were other advantages. No brilliant sunlight for the fair skinned, and no hot, humid weather since the air cooled down after dark. There was little competition too, since most Erie anglers go home when it gets dark, and the fishing was very good, once we found them. If you're having trouble during the Dog Days, you might try night fishing, too. They're there during daylight hours, but most won't bite. At night they will. MAB

The Boat Show looks back 45 years!

MID-AMERICA BOATING | BOAT SHOW PROGRAM

It premiered in 1973 when there were hardly any in-water boat shows anywhere in the country. It was first staged in Cedar Point’s north guest marina basin with fewer than 80 boats in-the-water and one small tent holding a dozen accessory displays.

So when this year’s Progressive Insurance North America Demo Boat Show opens for 4 days, August 24-27, it will mark its 45th Anniversary, one of the longest running inwater shows in the nation, and still be the largest show of its kind with more than 350 boats on display.

Looking back, in the early years, show goers were shuttled on trams from the main Cedar Point parking lots up to the north marina. When the show eventually outgrew that marina in the 1980’s, it was moved to its current location in Cedar Point’s south harbor where space is not limited and visitors can conveniently park adjacent to the show’s entrance. In an interview with Bryan Ralston, president of the Lake Erie Marine Trades Association, he shared background facts and to give us a feel-

It premiered in 1973 when there were hardly any in-water boat shows anywhere in the country. It was first staged in Cedar Point’s north guest marina basin with fewer than 80 boats in-the-water and one small tent holding a dozen accessory displays. But it was an instant hit with boaters and dealers, and it rapidly grew to be the largest in-water show on the Great Lakes.

MID-AMERICA BOATING | BOAT SHOW PROGRAM

ing for the boat show’s rich history. “A former president of LEMTA, Norm Schultz, actually created the show in 1973,” said Ralston, “and he led it for 34 years until retiring. He told us he started the show with the idea that it would be a quick weekend end-of-season clearance boat sale for LEMTA member dealers. “He hoped maybe 2,000 boaters might come,” Ralston continued, “but when more than 5,000 literally overran the marina, he suddenly realized he had a big boat show on his hands and the boaters really liked the in-water

lenge but it allowed the event to triple the onland accessory tents and displays, and grow the in-water dockage to whatever amount the dealers wanted. To do it thousands of feet of temporary floating dock had to be built because there were no permanent slips in the south harbor at that time. Even though there are some permanent docks in the harbor now, the show is still primarily held on the temporary floating docks. Moreover, when the show was moved there, heavy permanent electrical power, transformers and a distribution system to power-up the entire event had to be constructed and installed on the site because none existed there. It all proved to be a great move for the show and more convenient for the boaters who could now conveniently park adjacent to the show (no more riding trams). And, it’s clear boaters have always been excited about this show and its venue. To date, more than a half million from a 4-state area and Ontario have attended to event, and another 12,000 or so are expected to walk the docks at this year’s event. For the latest show information, go to: w w w. c e d a r p o i n t b o a t show.com. MAB

For years the show packed boats and displays into the North basin until, ultimately, a decision was made to move the event to Cedar Point’s South harbor which, at that time, didn’t have any docks or infrastructure. Putting the show where it is today, in the South harbor, was a big chal-

show format.” From less than 80 boats the first year, the show quickly filled all 200-plus docks available and all adjacent land space in what was the Cedar Point Guest Docks area of the North marina. To grow the show even more, Schultz began having temporary floating docks built to supplement the marina’s existing docks.

Boat insurance: Read the fine print By Capt. Fred Davis A call came in one afternoon from a boat owner requesting salvage service for a vessel beached along a sandy area saying he needed his boat towed to deeper water. I suggested an on-scene evaluation and told him it would determine equipment needs and action to be taken. Upon my arrival, waves were breaking over the stern of a 19’ small pleasure craft and immediate action would be necessary to save the boat from being destroyed. The owner said he had worked for hours with a large group of friends and neighbors attempting to recover the boat. I quoted an hourly rate for labor and equipment to recover and tow his boat to the nearest ramp area. He responded he had insurance and filled out the work order contract. A few hours later the boat had been removed,

towed to the nearest harbor and placed on its trailer and the owner was given his bill. He left, believing all he had to do was send the bill to his insurance company. A few days later the owner’s wife called to say the bill was being handled by their attorney because they did not have insurance coverage. An insurance adjuster advised them differently and their attorney had yet another opinion. The certainty was the bill had to be paid because a contract was executed. The question was, "Who would pay?" Boat insurance can be very confusing. Boats may be insured for various coverage, in various ways, with various companies. Surprisingly, (Above) This vessel is hard aground and required major salvage effort to remove it and protect surroundings from environmental damage.


it to your homeowner insurance. Many boaters spend a lot of money on a boat, than buy the cheapest insurance they can find thinking (and hoping) they won't need it. They may feel secure because they are well schooled on safe boating and proper navigation, but the unforeseen can and does happen. Good insurance provides peace of mind as you enjoy your watercraft.

MID-AMERICA BOATING | BOAT SHOW PROGRAM

some agents are not able to properly interpret the coverage they are selling. A boat owner needs to take the time to question and understand the insurance they are purchasing. In most cases, boat values (even small boats) are in the thousands of dollars. The small print in your boat policy needs to be understood. If your agent is unable to thoroughly explain the coverage, ask to speak to a company representative that can interpret the small print. Many people add insurance coverage for their boat to a homeowner’s policy. Doing this offers a savings but many homeowner policies provide very limited coverage. A few dollars saved on an insurance policy can seriously jeopardize coverage needed. A few examples of various boat policy coverage’s: (1) Most, if not all, policies state "It is the responsibility of the owner to immediately take all necessary action to protect their property from further damage when the boat is in peril." I have encountered insurance companies that would not cover the expense of recovery of a vessel because the vessel itself was NOT damaged. The fact that had the owner not taken protective action his vessel could have been a total loss, is not considered by the insurance company (2) A service often questioned is removal from grounding. Some companies refer to removal from a hard grounding as towing. Others interpret, as they should, a hard grounding is salvage. To avoid further damage, special action was required. Towing could even severely damage a grounded vessel. (3) Wreck removal is another event insurance companies often interpret differently and boat owners are unaware of their responsibility. In most cases, a vessel owner is held responsible for the removal of a wreck or any debris from it. Some insurance companies pay all cost of wreck removal; others do not cover wreck removal at all. Some may pay off a total loss claim on the boat, but leave an owner responsible for removal of the wreck or any further liability caused by it. If a wreck breaks up and its debris floats into the path of another vessel, causing damage to that vessel, liability can be extreme. If debris washes ashore on private property, problems will arise. (4) Towing coverage has been added to most policies (usually to the nearest harbor). You need to carefully check your policy because some companies offer no coverage for towing, especially on small boats. Towing coverage should be a must for all boaters. The Coast Guard no longer offers assistance towing if there is no danger to lives or property. The cost of towing by a commercial tower average $100.00 to $150.00 per hour, from the time the tow gets underway until the towboat returns to its dock, (port to port). If you’re insurance carrier does not offer towing coverage, you may purchase it from marine associations such as; BoatU.S, Sea Tow and others. There are other variables in marine insurance coverage. Often the insured has no idea what coverage they have until a claim occurs and it’s too late to change. Insurance coverage is not an item you should skimp on. Pennies saved on a cheap policy could cost you your boat if you encounter a major claim. In addition, you could be left with a big bill to add to your problems. If you own a high priced vessel, even though it's only a run-about, it would be wise to purchase a yacht policy. Avoid adding

Trail(er)ing Thoughts

Hope floats

Take a deep breath and relax. Like most, I am blown away that we are already nearing the “back to school” rush and our summer days are ticking away quicker than we would all like. Reflection is both a blessing and a curse: it is so easy to reflect back on the good and lose track of how quickly the days ahead of us tick by. No matter what your schedule looks like, always remember, hope floats. It is a simple as that. No matter the stressors in life, the frustration or worry, there is always the intangible blessing of “hope”. Whether it is hope for health or safety, hope for a new job or security, hope for a growing family or strength, hope for change or peace… there is always hope. Oftentimes we all fight too hard for the things that used to be standard place. We struggle for life’s basic essentials and worry along the way. Many people live in fear of the unknown rather than focus on the hope of what is to come. My “happy place” has always been on or around the water. Through all of the chaos of everyday life, the challenges ahead, the obstacles to overcome, I always find myself the most relaxed and peaceful when on the water. Boating calms me. It provides me the break I need to just think, relax and enjoy the time with my family without distractions or chores. I often find myself wondering when life will slow down: when the strain of the go-go-go lifestyle will subside so everyone can rest a little more and truly soak in the beauty of life. We surround ourselves with wonderful people, fun activities, and beautiful nature but are often too busy to really sit back and appreciate it. I often find myself hoping for a better balance, and without that hope I would be lost. Like my father always said to us growing up, “If you change nothing, nothing changes.” Without the hope of change or progress, whatever that means to you, we would all feel stuck. We may not be able to touch it, or see it, but we most certainly can feel it, inside of all of us, the hope of achieving the life we dream of. My question to you is this: what is your greatest hope?

The new S 328 continues the tradition of excellence in luxury center console design and features all the popular styling and functional elements of Pursuit’s Sport series. Entry onto the S 328 is through the standard port side dive door or via the transom extensions and through the transom door. Custom painted twin 300hp Yamaha 4-Strokes will cruise at 32 mph and top out at 50 mph. The wide open cockpit features all the fishing amenities needed to catch perch and walleye on Lake Erie! Standard features include insulated in-floor fish boxes, 24 galllon livewell, under-gunwale storage, and plenty of rod holders.

Optional Garmin flush mount electronics make the S 328 a pleasure to operate at the helm with double wide helm seats with standard flip down step for added height. Captain and crew are protected from the elements by the large windshield with side panels and high tech fiberglass hardtop. Forward wraparound lounge seating can be configured in numerous ways. Electrically actuated back rests turn the seating into forward facing lounge seats.

A choice that nearly every boater faces at the end of a season is where to store their boat. Boats are not the easiest thing to store for a multitude of reasons and many storage solutions will break your bank with high monthly costs and extra hidden fees. Thankfully, Dave Winters came up with a solution to this problem back in 1996. Dave had been

talking to his uncle who had a boat and a motorhome, but needed a place to store them that would be heated and cost-efficient. After this conversation, Dave created Storage Condos. Storage Condos are a unique storage solution because you do not rent themâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you own them. That means that this large space is all yours to enjoy. These condos allow boaters to rest easy knowing that their boats are being protected from the

inviting and versatile. Since you own the condo, you have 24/7 access to the unit and each unit is protected by video surveillance and steel jambs. Storage Condos have more than five locations and many other project partners, but they are expanding all the time as more and more people want a storage condo. From Ohio to Florida to Texas, these condos are changing the way people store their boats, RVs, cars, and more. And with such low condo fees, it isn’t hard to be a part of this movement.

elements. And with 18’ garage doors and large ramp areas, people can easily pull their boats and jet skis in with extra space to spare. Many people also store additional cars or other “toys” in this space so they can save room in their home garages. Not only can a storage condo protect your boat, but it can make for a great place to sit back and relax. Many condo owners install lofts in their units, adding televisions and furniture as a way to turn a functional space into a place to enjoy some down time. Your boat storage can now double as a man-cave. Each unit is individually heated and has highspeed internet. The units are also complete with dry wall finish, so it feels less like a warehouse space and more like a home. Newer units offer water and septic, making this space even more
