|Common Boating Questions
by: News Canada
Which type of boat is right for me? For most buyers,
general purpose craft which serve as fish, ski and
picnic boats are ideal; for others needing something
specialized, a wide selection is offered in most
markets. How big a boat will I need? Size is a function
of who will be on board and where it will be used.
Options range from 12-ft. dinghies to power and

a good buy for your money and not unloading a faulty
vehicle off of someone else's hands. For first-time
buyers this is often the most difficult task because
they lack the knowledge that only years of boating
experience can bring.
