We are beyond thankful for all those in our community who donated toys this holiday season to our first annual Boat Full of Joy Toy Drive! Between our amazing customers, employees, members of the Canandaigua community, and our partners at Northwestern Mutual of Rochester we were able to fill the festively decorated Super Air Nautique 230 sitting in our front show room. Today, December 21, 2018 we unloaded the boat and sent our little wakeboarding elf's out to start packing and delivering toys to children in our local area that could use a little joy this Christmas.
There are a number of amazing organizations nation wide that dedicate tremendous time and energy towards toy drives around the holidays, and we have been especially impressed with the Pirate Toy Funds as we have become a first year partner. Not only is this organization rooted locally, keeping the toy donations in the greater Rochester area, but they are the only organization in the country that is dedicated to this cause year round. They have distributed more that 250,000 toys to local children since being founded in 1995. Learn more about the Pirate Toy Fund and how you can help at https://www.piratetoyfund.org/
Believe it or not... the Holiday season is upon us! And this year our team at Seager Marine will be partnering up with the Pirate Toy Fund to help spread joy to children in the local area who deserve it. Our goal is to fill the festively decorated Super Air Nautique 230 in our front showroom with toys for children ages 1-14 before December 19th, so that we can help to brighten up the holiday season for kids in the area that are in need of something to celebrate. So if you have the ability, come on down to the city pier, check out the lights on our Super Air 230 (they are cool!), and drop off a small toy that could make a big difference to a local child.
To give a little background on the Pirate Toy Fund, the organization was founded in 1995 by local children’s entertainer, Gary the Happy Pirate, and is the only non-profit organization of its kind in the United States. To date, they have distributed nearly 250,000 toys, and continue to actively pursue new avenues to expand their mission.

Well, the weather could have been better and the fishing could have been better, but 10 teams gave it a shot. First place went to the Jim DeSienna team with 5.1#, second went to the Ted Decker team with 3.69#, third went to the Jason LaMagna team with 3.42#, and fourth went to the Don Hubert team with 3.39#. The largest perch weighed in was 1.295# caught by Melissa from the LaMagna team. It was great to see everyone and it was nice to see the friendly bantering and camaraderie of all the teams. Weigh-in is always a fun time with food, refreshments, and fish stories. Thanks to all who joined us and congrats to the winners.
