Questions about your boat? Need to buy or sell parts? Check out the forum!
Aug 24 (2023!). update!
I remain extremely busy with my career, but am reaping the dividends. We’ve safely moved to our lovely new (to us) century home on 4 acres in Prince Edward Island near the ocean. Unfortunately our boat remains in Ontario until I can find the time and money to prep it to transport out here – it’s a pricey trip and a long truck drive!
I’m not spending a lot of time updating the site or owner registries, but I do occasionally look at all the registry update emails I get and blast through the updates. If you have sent an update and the registry page hasn’t been updated yet, consider sending it again.
I’m also looking for volunteers who have time to help moderate the forum and keep the WordPress pages up to date – get in touch if this is something you’d be interested in.
Finally, hosting this site does cost money and any donations from those with the means to donate would be appreciated. Hosting, domain registration and plugin fees cost me a little under $200 per year in personal funds. A few donations here and there for $10 or $20 will go a long way in ensuring all the information on this site remains available for everyone well into the future.

Messages from the webmaster
One of my biggest goals for this site was to revive the active community and get Grampian owners talking to each other. I’d really appreciate if you could register on the forum and help us concentrate Grampian knowledge here 🙂
The site cannot survive without active participants and contributors, so please join up and post, even if it’s just to tell us that you went for a sail in your Grampian today 🙂
Owners Registry Request – Hull Numbers
I’m afraid I can’t update boats in the new Owners’ Registry unless you also submit the hull number – there are thousands of boats on the site and recently most boats are being submitted without a hull number. It’s very difficult for me to find your boat without the hull number. Please also be sure to include your detailed engine specs (I.e. Johnson 9.9 Outboard).
I’m James Burke. Ken Corbett, the previous webmaster, graciously handed me the reins to the site in summer of 2020. I own a Discovery 7.9, a modernized version of the Grampian 26 based at Port Whitby Marina near Toronto.
I work full time so updates happen when I’ve got the time, but my hope is to update all of the old site pages to WordPress format as my time allows 🙂
