YIPPEE!

Summer is starting and so is boating season across Canada. After a year
of COVID-19 and lockdowns, I don't think I have been this excited about
the summer since public school let out!
We hope you are planning a great boating season and we wanted
to open with our invitation to share your opinions, experiences, best
destinations, boating anecdotes, pet photos...in fact, anything
boating-related that you care to share about this summer.
Our sister publication, Canadian Yachting OnBoard
(CYOB) is an online digest that is read by about
20,000 Canadian boaters twice a month. Your opinions,
experiences and adventures should be part of it.
CYOB prides itself for being up to date with everything
that's going on in the Canadian boating landscape and
invites YOU to be part of it. Send your news, photos, opinions
and yarns to cyonboard@kerrwil.com. Let's share the good times this
summer!
And, let's avoid the bad times by making sure you never put E15
gasoline in your boat.
We always recommend that you buy your gas from a proper marina
and take that extra step by asking them if their fuel is ethanol-free - before
you put it in the tank. In many areas of Canada, E10 gasoline is what most
people regard as " regular " gas but in fact, E10 has up to 10% ethanol
(which is an alcohol) blended into the fuel.
With the presidency of Joe Biden in the United States, climate change
and clean energy has vaulted to the top of the priority list-second only to
defeating COVID-19 and getting America's economy back on its feet. In
Canada, the Trudeau government has signalled a similar focus on climate
and conservation. Among the environmental policies being advanced on
both sides of the border is a move to less carbon-intensive fuels, including
upping the ethanol content in gasoline from 10% (E10) to 15% (E15) or
more. Ontario is the latest jurisdiction to commit to phasing-in E15 by
2030.
On the face of it, E15 makes sense: increasing the ethanol content
in gas results in a cleaner burn and fewer harmful greenhouse gases
(GHGs) released into the atmosphere. However, high ethanol content
has a severe downside: while it may be fine for modern automobiles,
E15 is highly destructive to non-road engines, including marine, lawn
and garden, snowmobiles, ATVs, generators, and more. Misfuelling with
E15 increases risk for both consumers by voiding product warranties and
manufacturers by increasing warranty and liability claims, which harms
companies' reputations and ultimately hits their bottom line.
The effect of E15 on boat engines warrants a short explanation. The
more air that is added to the combustion chamber, the hotter the engine
runs-which increases nitrogen oxide emissions and quickly leads to
engine damage. E10 is 2.5% oxygen; E15 is 5% oxygen. NMMA (the
National Marine Manufacturers Association) studies have confirmed
serious and well-documented human safety, environmental, and
technology concerns associated with E15.
For boater safety, you should know that ethanol is hygroscopic - it can
easily combine with water and in open vented marine fuel tanks, moisture
in the air can bring water into your fuel tank. The biggest risk is that a
blob of water and ethanol gets drawn into the engine causing it to stop
and potentially, leaving you stranded. Either at home in Canada or if you
travel to the USA, do not put E15 in your boat. In fact, carefully avoid
E10 at highway gas stations. Fuel up at a marina that sells marine fuel.
It's worth every cent!
