On January 14th, a past client of Thomson Rogers – Stephen Cull, President of CHARTERABILITY.COM, hosted an informational reception at the Toronto Boat Show. In attendance was the right honourable Lt Governor David Onley.

A few years ago Stephen envisioned a “cruise line” for people with disabilities to boat along the beautiful Toronto/Oakville shoreline.  He convinced some like minded good natured boating enthusiasts and local volunteers to join the venture and the subsequently secured a Pontoon boat.  In general a Pontoon boat is easily accessible for people needing mobility aids.  For example the deck is on one level, it is exceptionally stable, and it has a shallow draft which allows it to navigate relatively shallow water.

Charter Ability operates out of Oakville, cruising along the water from early May to late September.  It is a fantastic afternoon outing and enjoyable by all.  Give Stephen a call if you or a client would like to go for an afternoon adventure.
