What’s New at Cast Your Anchor?

Hobby Show: Mark November 3rd 4th and 5th on your calendar. This year Cast Your Anchor is going to present a Pirate theme at the show. Each day of the show, the first 100 kids that visit our booth will be given a pirate flag. Remember, you don’t have to be small to be a kid!! We will also be giving away prizes. See us at the International Centre. Join us for a Tax Free Weekend!

Bluenose II: Cast Your Anchor has been able to obtain 37 pieces of the Bluenose II. In 1995, the Bluenose II Preservation Trust retrofitted some of the famous schooner. Contact Cast Your Anchor to see how you too can own a piece of true Canadian history.

No More Excuse Kit: If you could buy a kit that came with all the tools you need, glue, paint and a great instructional book, what could be better? How about if Cast Your Anchor gave you your money back (store credit) once you built the boat. Unbelievable!! Contact us for details.

They’re Back: Still a few left!! You saw them first at the Hobby Show in November. We have received another shipment of completed models. Great quality at a great price. These won’t last. Come in and check it out. Makes a great gift. Some of the ships are Le Soleil Royal, HMS Prince, Cutty Sark, Bluenose, Constitution, Victory, Endeavour and many more.

Nautical Gifts: Decorate your workshop. Cast Your Anchor is pleased to present new brass products. Compasses, chart readers, brass hooks, and much more. We even have ships bells.

Rockers? They are here!! You have heard of rocking horses. How about rocking boats, trains, cars and motorcycles. These rockers are made of solid hardwood and are exquisitely finished. Great for the little ones or for decorating your home. Motor Cycles are $130, boats and cars are $150 and trucks and trains are only $180. Seeing is believing.

Children’s Workshops: 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.

What’s Coming

Kingston Road Santa Clause Parade: Cast Your Anchor is pleased to be a sponsor of Kingston Road’s first Santa Clause Parade. Mark Sunday November 12th on your calendar. Bring the kids down and join in the festivities. Great way to kick off the Christmas season

Adult Workshop: Our popular workshop will restart November 8 for the fall and winter session. 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!!!

Model Registry: Cast Your Anchor is proposing to build a database of ship models that are built by our customers. Some of the information to be included would be the name of the builder, the owner, the year in which it was completed and some of the characteristics of the model. This database would be used to authenticate models. The model would be issued a certificate. The database would be managed by Cast Your Anchor and be archived within a nautical museum. Please indicate if you would like to have your model registered.

See you at the store
