    SW Ontario Newbie-gctid801794

    Hello everyone!

    My name is Tif. My husband came across a Bayliner over the weekend and we towed it home. We are very happy with what we have seen so far!

    Photos of the engine and boat are attached. We were both raised on the water, but have never had a boat of our own. He remembers a lot, but I will need a LOT of reminding!

    What cleaners do you recommend for washing the boat?

    The pads, cushions, & table in the cabin are all missing, the carpets need to be replaced. The bench for the rear seats is missing, too, so we will have some customization options to go over. Should I go to Bayliner for replacements, or is it just as well to have someone make them?

    What are your favorite paint brands and other things?

    If you're in Ontario or have been here, what marinas do you like around Lake Huron, Lake Erie, and Lake Ontario?

    Are there any restaurants where you can dock and eat?

    What are some good marine supply shops, online or brick and mortar?

    And most importantly, is there a spot on this website with basic lingo, the "anatomy" of a boat, etc.?

    Maybe we will meet on the water someday!

    -Tif

        Welcome aboard!!

        I use magic erasers or the dollar store equal. Be careful though, as they are abrasive.

        Those will get you started. If you have the chance, a local boating course is great even for those of us that have been on the water for years.

                Thanks! That was my guess. The original owner is scrounging up the paperwork. He inherited it when his father passed away. It's been under the tarp ever since then, current owner has no interest in boating, I guess.
