Calendar is Filling Up

May 26, 2022 in Uncategorized


They may be little boats, but they command a fair bit of attention and a lot of devotion. Disappearing Propeller Boat owners like to use their boats and this summer will be a busy one.

Several UUMMTs, or Misery Tours for short, have been planned for this summer and the regatta is on as well. The Misery Tours give Dippy owners a chance to explore different lakes and waterways, beyond the immediate home turf of their boats. It is also a wonderful way to share in the misery and joy of ownership of these little boats.

The first tour is scheduled for  Saturday, June 12, on Lake of Bays, and the launch point is Norway Point.  Norway Point is accessed off Highway 117, east of Bracebridge and Highway 11. There will be many scenic sights along this route, beginning with Norway Point Church, which is a typically quaint small church on the shore. In 1908, the first church was built by a group of summer residents.  It collapsed under the weight of snow in 1943 and was rebuilt with donations from the congregation. In 1974, a dock was built to give easier water access.

Boats will cruise to Dwight beach for lunch and then cruise along the west shore on the return leg. Dwight beach is an ideal lunch stop with its scenic views, expansive sand, shade of tall pines and obligatory boat pier with freight shed. Trips go, rain or shine. Such is the determination. The journey starts at 10:00 am and the return is expected to be by 5:00 p.m.
