What’s New at Cast Your Anchor?

Canadian Home Workshop Show: Last weekend Cast Your Anchor participated in this trade show at the Toronto Congress Centre. It was great to see many of our customers at the show and watch all of the hands on exhibits especially the Kids Corner.

March Break: Once again Cast Your Anchor is pleased to offer Children’s Workshops during the March break. We will be build schooners, the Santa Maria and many other models. Contact the store if you would like your kids to experience the fun of ship model building.

Web Site: Our reference library is up and running and is already out of date. We have a new line of ship modeling books now in stock. Remember to tune into

Forum: Cast Your Anchor has begun setting up an on line forum in order to connect all of our customers. We have very interesting discussions during our in house workshops on techniques etc and would like to encourage all of our customers to participate in these discussions.

Adult Workshop: The interest is very high so we decided to run the workshop every Wednesday ALL YEAR ROUND. Come in and build any model you want and take as long as you want to build it. The cost is only $150. The experience is priceless!!! Do you know someone that is confined but is into the hobby?? Our roving instructor will be happy to pay a visit and help with issues or simply critique the builders work. Contact the store to set up an appointment.

Radio Control: Come and check out our new line of books dealing with the radio control hobby. We are fully stocked on radio control sail and power boats. We support the Soling and Victoria class of sailing boats. We have a full range of parts, batteries and power supplies. Have questions? – our in store technician will be happy to help.

Restoration: Cast Your Anchor is heavily involved in the repair and restoration of both static and radio control models. There is always a challenge waiting for us on our work benches.

What’s Coming

Rockers? The deal was to good to pass up! You have heard of rocking horses. How about rocking boats, trains, cars and motorcycles. These rockers are made of maple and are exquisitely finished. Available later this month.

Finished Models: Ok, another good deal that was too good to pass up. Beautifully finished models from offshore will be available next month at the store. Instant gratification for those of us with a penchant for all things nautical.

Marine Museum: If you are interested in helping us to re-establish the Toronto Marine Museum, please contact the store. The City of Toronto is willing to lend us their artifacts and we are actively looking for a location. Let us know if you would like to become involved.

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.

See you at the store
