DO YOU LOVE BOATING?

Spike's Marine Stations: We Beautify Boats!

Why ‘Spike On The Water’?

 

You take off at top speed and leave the mainland behind. You reach out for that mystery that calls out when you stare into the horizon from the shore. You slow down to a stop and breath in the cool, invigorating   air, as you are gently rocked by the waves.  Here at  Spike On The Water Inc, we  know what it's like to be on the water, to be one with the waves.  But we also know you can't walk on water and that's why you love your boat!

Nevertheless, loving is caring. And caring for boats is hard, time-consuming work. Time that could be better spent on the water.

Fortunately at Spike On the Water Inc   WE LOVE BOATS too!   Big boats, small boats, new boats, old boats, fast boats, slow boats, long boats, short boats, tall boats.  In fact,  we love all kinds of boats. We love caring for them,  we love making them beautiful and we love seeing the pleasure sailing a boat can bring.

 

However, you don’t want your time consumed with the caring for, cleaning of or repairing your boat – you just want to get out there and enjoy the delights of the lakes and oceans.


So, What Is Our Solution?


Here at Spike on the Water Inc, we realise that time is a precious and priceless commodity.  We are every bit as passionate about boating as you are and that is why we understand that you want to spend more time on your boat than you do cleaning, repairing or maintaining it.


Our mission is to return you to your purpose of boating -   simply being on the water:

  • We will  rejuvenate your vessel,  while you shop or dine.
  • We will   give you back your  time  with   a place where you and your guests can unwind, relax and recharge  in one of our suites.
  • We  will  do all the hard work so that you don’t have to.
  • We will teach you the skills you want/need  to maintain your vessel your way.
  • We will connect you to the niche/specialist   contractors that will share this safe harbour,  eliminating   the frustration of  getting them to your boat.

 


What Is Unique About Our Service?


Spike on the Water Inc  began in 2003 with Shane 'Spike' Desloges.  He would race across the GTA  on  his  roller-skates to get the job done.   Spike did everything from deck and hull washes, polishes and restorations, to interior detailing.   Now the company  has multiple crew members and offers its full services to  all marinas and yacht clubs across  Southern Ontario.


To be of service in an industry with insatiable demand, Spike On The Water Inc  now realises  that it’s  time to bring their quality service  to even more of the boating and yachting community.


Convinced of the fact that "when your boat is beautiful, your boat is valuable", Spike on the Water Inc  offers  a bespoke service:   unique and customer driven.

 


What We Want To Achieve?


We need your help to launch the first “SPIKE STATION”!


What is a Spike Station, you ask?   Spike's Marine Station is:

  • An innovative destination for boats up to 55' LOA
  • A networking space to increase awareness  of  our industry's  impact on water quality
  • A safe place to secure highly specialised marine services
  • A marine supply depot/dispatch
  • An alternative to anti-fouling dependency 

and so much more.


With your help, we can make the SPIKE STATION a reality.


Beyond beautifying boats,  we also aim  to OUTLAW the use of anti-fouling (highly toxic) paints from the Great Lakes  with   the Drive-In  Boat Wash.  Spike's Marine Stations  will be the template for the world of mariners who require an  exceptionally responsible, environmentally friendly, one-stop shop for all their transient  vessel service    needs.

 

 



Why Are We Crowdfunding?


BUILDING THE DREAM

The dream of being on the water has been a part of Spike ever since his Dad shared with him his love of the open seas. This long-standing dream has now become Spike On The Water Inc, an unlikely career for the son of a fashion model/entrepreneur and a train conductor. But for Spike, passion prevailed and it’s now time to take this childhood dream to the next level.


To help Spike turn this dream into a reality, he is looking to initially raise $100,000 for the first phase of marketing. 


These funds will be used for our Advanced Marketing campaign to raise awareness for our Crowdfunding Campaign in January, where we’ll aim to raise the full $1,000,000 for the build of the first   Spike's Marine Station on Lake Ontario.


We are asking you to be part of the dream and help us to bring the boating and yachting community of Toronto and further afield a true luxury experience.  But we are not just asking for your help without offering you something in return.  To show our appreciation for your support we want to offer you some amazing rewards.  You will receive early access to our quality, professional, unique services at heavily discounted rates, which will only add value to your prized possession!  Check out the list of rewards below:
