Then And Now

At Woodland Marine we have always prided ourselves on our high level of customer service. For over 50 years we have been proudly serving boaters of the Muskoka district for all of their boating needs. Over the years we have grown considerably and have expanded to three different locations across the Muskoka's to better serve our clients. Whether our customers are looking to buy a new or used boat, winterize and store their boats for the off season, or if their boat needs a marine mechanic for a tune up or repairs, we will be here to help.

Skeleton Lake Marina is now into its second half century of operation in the Muskoka region. Since 1957 when Jack Macpherson purchased and converted an old sawmill with boathouse into the marina this facility has had a sizable number of boat sales, performed a lot of boat repairs and pumped a huge volume of marine gas. Two other owners operated the Ontario marina before current owner Brian McComb purchased it and replaced the old structure in 2007 with the modern and sizeable boat and motor showroom, offices and retail facility now on the site. There were only a couple of boats with motors on the Muskoka lake 52 years ago and most gas sales in those days were to truckers. Skeleton Lake Road 3 did not even exist until some years later.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that in the late 1950s there were less than 250 cottages around Skeleton Lake, some of which were built in the 1920s and 1930s. Today there are approximately 500 cottages around the Muskoka lake and more are being constructed every year.

Cottage rental vacations in Muskoka are a terrific summer getaway for the family, but what good is it to be lakeside without any way of fully enjoying the water? We offer boat and Seadoo rentals to make sure that you and your family can get the most out of your summer vacation. Whether you want a comfortable boat for site seeing, a fishing boat, or something a little faster for skiing and other water sports, we can help you out. We have a full range of available rental boats at both of our on-water marinas, located on Skeleton Lake and Lake Rosseau. In addition to boat rentals, we have a large selection of water sports equipment available for rent.

In 1968 David Ivey bought his first power boat from the Skeleton Lake marina. It was a 14' Chrysler, together with a 75 hp. Chrysler outboard motor and he recalls paying about $2400. all in ... since there was nothing like GST at the time. Direct comparisons with today's product offerings are nearly impossible, but it's fair to say that even a remotely similar boat and motor would likely cost about $12000. today ... and that’s before tax. The biggest difference, of course is in the cost of gas, which roughly 40 years ago was selling for less than $.50 per gallon.

We are resuming the Skeleton Lake Marina name at our property located on Skeleton Lake Road 3 just off Highway 141 West. Until now we’ve been operating this facility as the Woodland Marina. We chose that name when we purchased and re-built the marina site. We recognized that restoring the former name, which had been in use on this site for 50 years, demonstrates our commitment to maintaining a long tradition in serving our many friends and clients on Skeleton Lake and the surrounding Muskoka area.

New Logo

Our logo for Skeleton Lake Marina has been revised to reflect the same style that is used both for our other Ontario marinas, the Windermere Marina and Woodland Marine, our dry land service, parts and storage facility. Each of these three units is a member of the Woodland Marine Group.

New Gas Docks

We have re-positioned our fuel dock at Skeleton Lake, Ontario. The marina fuel dock will be located on the outside finger dock closest to the Skeleton Lake public boat launch area. Clients can easily tie up to the new dock to buy gas or visit our store even on the windiest day. We will also be building a kiosk for our helpful marine gas attendant at the end of our new gas dock. Payments can be made right at your boat, using our new wireless system. We will work very hard to maintain competitive fuel pricing. Please remember that store and gas charge accounts for families are available and we will remain open later on Fridays.

To improve your re-fuelling experience at Windermere Marina we have moved one of our gas pumps to the end of the first dock closest to Tobin’s. This will provide you with three fuel docks, allowing for easier and faster fill ups and will eliminate the usual congestions that happens directly in front of the Windermere Marina building on busy and windy summer days. Payment from your boat will be easy using either our new wireless system or customer charge accounts.

Fueling up your boat can be a hassle. The drive into town to fill jerry cans takes time out of your day on the water, and hoisting up the jerry cans to pour the gasoline into your boat can put extra strain on your back, tiring you out so you can't fully enjoy your boat. To avoid these problems in filling up your boat, bring it out to the on-water fuel pumps at one of our Muskoka Marinas. We have staff at the pumps to fill up your boat, taking all of the work out of it for you, giving you nothing but pleasure from your pleasure craft! Our staff are well trained, leading to fewer gasoline spills in the water, and proper clean ups if a spill does occur. By bringing your boat to the Woodland Marine fuel pumps you take all of the hassle of fueling your boat, and you help to ensure the safety of the environment by minimizing fuel spills. It's a win win scenario!

Storing and winterizing your boat for the off season can be a hassle for boat owners. If winterization is not done correctly in the fall than the results can be disastrous on your boat. By letting professionals take care of the work, you avoid the headache and risks involved. You can rest easy knowing that your boat is in seasoned hands that know how to get the job done properly. We offer several different boat storage and winterization packages for our customers in order to meet all of their needs. All of our service technicians are fully licensed and have years of experience in marine service and maintenance.

Winterizing your boat properly is extremely important. When the temperature drops below the freezing point, any residual water that is left in your boat will freeze. The water then expands as it solidifies, and this causes an increase in pressure in the lines which can damage your boat. Every year, many people have to replace waterlines systems and bilge pumps because of improper winterization. When we provide winterization service, we ensure that all water it taken out of the boat's systems and that there will be no freezing in the lines causing damage.

When winter recedes and the warm weather rolls in, it comes time to take your boat out of marina storage. We know that your boat is your ticket to having a great summer season, and we strive to make sure that when you come to pick your boat up in the spring after its winter storage it will be ready to go. Our services like available heated boat storage and full boat cleaning help to ensure that when you come to grab your boat in the spring, it is in pristine condition and running perfectly. You depend on your boat to provide your family with a fun season, so you need dependable winter boat storage.

As September rolls around, it comes time to begin thinking about storing your boat for the winter. For some people, storing their boat for the winter may just mean pulling it out of the water and putting it in the garage. But for those who rely on marinas for winter boat storage and service, always remember to try to book your storage appointment early. It is a very busy time for marinas, and if you want to make sure that you can get a haul-out time that works best for you, always book well in advance. At Woodland Marine we always try our best to accommodate all of our clients and their winter boat storage needs, but planning ahead is always a good idea!
