Welcome to the off-season '21-'22. Leaves are falling. Boats are hauling. Heated and cold boat storage buildings are stuffed. We say the word "winterizing" one million times a day.
And once all our boats have been put into hiberation, the quiet Hessel mornings signal it's time for the winter projects to kick off.
What does a small, full service marina in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan does all winter long? Well it's high time we showed you.
On the to-do list this winter:
Phase 1 of Abel Hand's restoration
A Boston Whaler gets a new bow rail console rail
We show your our favorite cross-country skiing in Les Cheneaux
Varnishing of antique wooden boats (think Garwood, Chris Craft, Century)
Snowmobiling the eastern upper peninsula
Vintage and Antique Snowmobile SHOW
Vintage and Antique Snowmobile RIDE
Vintage and Antique Snowmobile POKER RUN
Les Cheneaux Snowsfest
Repowering boats because...
We're a Honda Marine dealer now!
Plus so much more, but you get the idea. Yay Les Cheneaux Islands! There's a lot to do in Hessel and Cedarville in the winter months. We can't wait to show you everything.
Now enjoy this photo of Silver Girl. She'll be getting a fresh coat of varnish v soon.
