p.2 Inspection of Vessels - Capt. W. Taylor says he has completed his inspection of the vessels and steam craft of Ontario, and that he will present his report to the Canadian Marine Association, of which he acts as the Chief Inspector. The Captain adds that many of the vessels will have to be considerably repaired before they are insured, but any way the classification generally will be lower as few new boats are being built and the old ones are annually depreciating in value. Captain Taylor had two assistants, and he and they inspected as many as 500 craft, wintering between Saugeen and Windsor. The Canadian Marine Association is composed of four insurance companies - the British American, Anchor, Western and Royal Canadian. - and Capt. Taylor has been its inspector for nearly 14 years.
