2013 Toronto International Boat Show

The big news this year from Tohatsu Outboards  and Nissan Marine is that they are offering at no additional charge a a 5 YEAR warranty on their outboards. That's another reason to consider making your next purchase a Tohatsu or Nissan outboard. Want another reason, Tohatsu also manufactures motors for Mercury and BRP Evenrude. Check us out.

Meet me at theToronto International Boat Show  at the Tohatsu/Nissan Booth #1853 

Once again there are savings on all our products Tohatsu Outboards Tohatsu Outboards Nissan Marine outboard motors.

Looking for an inflatable then you have to check out our line of Duras Inflatables Duras inflatables Great value. I feel that this boat is an all-round winner for quality, price and added value items that cost more on the other boats.

McGregor Bay Marina carries a line of Ultracraft Aluminium Boats Ultracraft Canadian Voyager . This is the perfect entry level boat for the cottage.

Great prices Great Savings Great Value at the Boat Show Meet me Mike Arpin there at the Boat Show Jan 12 to 20 2013. Safe boating!

Oh my God see what happens when one neglects one's BLOG!

I have spent too much time trying to get caught up on the new format for the Marina's blog. What a shock to find there is a new format that has to be followed. For an old guy it's sometimes confusing as to what is happening.. The more gray hair you have the harder it is to get caught up. So much for that comment>

Well Christmas is coming too fast and New Years is just around the corner that means the Toronto International Boat Show will be here faster than you think. once again I'll be there at the Tohatsu and Nissan outboard booth. See you there.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy new Years. Happy Holidays everyone.

Long time since last blog

There is much that is happening around the marina besides trying to get caught up. Each time I think that I'm just about getting caught up, someone or something like the weather, throws a  monkey wrench into the works. But that's good because it keeps one on one's toes!

The Rice Lake Fishing festival is still on going till June the 17th and our prize is still out  there and it's ready to be caught. All you have to do is 1) have a perks card, 2) invest a little time out there on the lake. and you can win. check it out at

Check out our prize an 86 Duras and a 5hp Tohatsu 4 stroke outboard. McGregor Bay Marina

Rent a boat or stay at a cottage Highland View Resort

See you soon

Rice Lake is almost ready for boating

Well the ice is just about out of McGregor Bay, there are only a few places where the ice has gathered because of the SE wind this morning. Never the less we will begin to float the docks into place this coming Saturday. With the barge in position and the docks in at the Marina we should be able to launch the Marina's boats very shortly. If the weather holds out and the ground dries out it will be sooner than later. That means all you anglers  will be able to rent a boat and do some serious Black Crappie and Yellow Perch fishing!

With the ice out and if the weather co-operates so the ground and road structure dry out we should be able to launch some of our customers boats. That's if we can get into the field.

I will be starting early next week servicing some of the motors for those that want to get an early start on the season.   It is best to call me and set up an appointment to have your motor serviced for the Spring that way you will avoid disappointment.

We will be reviewing our inventory of used boats and will post the availability on the website so keep looking in the coming days for deals on boats, and motors.

Spring is just around the corner!

The boat show is over but there are still savings that can be had. Give us a call and we can order the motor you want and have it here before the boating season starts.

Outboard Motors and Duras Inflatables are dependable, quality products, that are affordable. A little known fact is that Tohatsu (Japanese manufactured engines which stands for Tokyo Motor) is the largest manufacturer of outboards in the world. Their Plant in Komagne Japan, manufactures and ships outboards all over the world.

When they were first introduced into Canada they were sold as Nissan Marine several years ago Tohatsu was introduced into the product line. Mcgregor Bay Marina sell and services both.

There are several reasons to buy a Tohatsu Outboard Firstly Quality, Price, and Dependability.

Before you buy that Mercury (up to 30 hp) or Evenrude (up to 15 hp) you should talk to me and find out why you should choose a Tohatsu. You will be surprised!
