Subject: Conny Strub moves on to outfitting
(Posted on Dec 6, 2009 at 10:15PM ) Tags:
After quite a few years working closely with our Eurpoean clientele, Conny Strub - our master of many languages and passionate world competitor - has moved on from Cooper Boating.  But she has not not moved far.  Conny is in the same building - in fact, if you travel from our current Granville Island location back towards our old location, you'll pass Conny's new store.  Strub Outdoor and Marine is well suited to keep you warm and dry as you enjoy off season boating.

As one of our sailors puts it: "there's no such thing as bad weather - only bad clothing".  Conny couldn't put it better herself!

We wish her well with this exciting new pursuit.  Drop by Granville Island soon to see both the Strub store and Cooper!

Subject: Location Based Galleries Track Cooper Locations
(Posted on Nov 5, 2009 at 01:56PM )
We've created a Google infused gallery pinpointing our Cooper Boating locations - Vancouver on Granville Island, Sidney on Vancouver Island and Powell River on the Sunshine Coast.

We are pretty excited about these location based galleries. We will be able to load images real time with descriptions of activities, even links to more details. Interested parties can publish our posts on their own web sites or blogs simply by grabbing our widget code, or they can be notified by email or SMS each time we make an update.

We've also added collaboration tools allowing members to comment and share their own experiences with their peeps.

We've loaded our video of a pod of Orcas in active pass. Something we take for granted here on the west coast.











Even though the sight is common, we are still always in awe of the power and beauty of nature.
Subject: 'Halo' - Latest Addition to the fleet
(Posted on Oct 25, 2009 at 12:05PM ) Tags:
This boat comes with a warning - get support for your neck.  Why? Because she's sure to turn heads. 

Following up on the success of Maverick and Sainte Reine II in the fleet, Halo is the latest addition from this French yard and the boat has very aggressive styling  and fantastic sailing characteristics.   Unlike the other two, Halo is offered in our Sidney location.
