Since   2010,   our   Yacht   Club   has   proudly   hosted   a   historic   boat   —   Pogo.   It   is the   oldest   still-functioning   motorized   boat   having   belonged   to   the   Royal Canadian    Navy,    and    still    in    its    original    condition.    The    construction    is entirely   of   aluminum   and   its   hull   is   welded   —   a   first   for   the   Canadian   Navy. Built   in   1954,   Pogo   is   also   the   oldest   aluminum   boat   in   Canada.   Today,   it   is the   property   of   the   Navy   League   of   Canada   who   will   be   happy   to   show you   the   boat   at   your   request.   For   more   complete   information   about   Pogo, see the following link.
