June 2004 Newletter

Mission Statement:
Create a helpful and friendly atmosphere to promote the hobby of nautical ship building. The products that we sell emphasize the artistic nature of the hobby to help you create a valued heirloom. We will provide a high level of customer service.

As part of fulfilling the mission statement, CYA imports a complete range of high quality products from around the world. We purchase the products in a way that provides value to our customers. We provide a facility for education, exhibition, hold workshops and assist in project assembly with one on one consulting. We provide an opportunity for artists to sell their creations to the public.

What’s New at Cast Your Anchor?

Workshops: A truly unique opportunity! Fall workshops will be conducted by Mr. Roger Cole. Roger is a world renowned ship modeler, well known in Toronto from his work at the Ontario Science Centre. His creations are found in many museums throughout the world and he is the recipient of many awards from international competitions. A very special opportunity to learn from one of the world’s best.

Free Children’s Workshops: A big hit last month. Introduce your children to the wonderful world of model boat building. Saturday mornings we’ll be offering instruction and assistance to enhance your child’s ability to succeed at model building. Drop by the store for additional information.

Just the Numbers: In stock: 50 different model kits, 5000 fittings in every scale, 1700 specialized tools, 1000 different types and sizes of wood. You will not find a better selection of modeling products in Ontario!

Artist Rendering: Perhaps a particular ship has special meaning to you but there is no kit currently available. We can arrange to have either a pen and ink drawing or water colour painting commissioned. A treasure for a lifetime. Ask for details in the store

What’s Next

Radio Control: Race with the best. Take a Futaba two channel radio, a Soling 1 Meter sail boat and a Hitech Wench and all that’s left is honing your sailing skills. Complete package for the most popular racing outfit is only $450.

Nautical Gifts: We are searching for unique hand-crafted nautically themed gifts to enhance our product offering for you. Hand blown glass, stained glass, ornaments, water colours or oils, needlecraft. In other words, any one-of-a-kind item that is hand made. Let us know if there are any special items you would like to see!

Our customers make a difference. Please let us know if there is a particular activity or product that you would like us to consider. We truly appreciate the feedback that we have received so far and look forward to more of your excellent suggestions.
