Kasshabog Lake, Havelock-Belmont-Methuen: Then and Now

May 31, 2021

Then and Now: Stoney Point Marina

Stoney Point Marina has a ton of history. Growing up we would go see May in the general store at the bottom of the house to get candy. Zolt ran a small engine repair in the brown building which is now a restaurant. Stony Point Marina use to sell Arctic Cat snowmobiles as well.

This is Zolt and May. They ran the marina for a number of years before retiring on the lake then later to Norwood. I was just a child when I knew these two but I do remember stories of Zolt stealing a military plane to escape Hungary in WW2. I sure someone else could elaborate on that story further.

Then and Now: Moore’s Bay Cottages

Moores Bay Cottages Kasshabog Lake

THEN-Old house on the property that burnt down a number of years ago

My father, Keith Sinclair, purchased this property in the 70s. When I was born I was brought back to the house above. Many lifelong friends were made here along with many buckets of Rye and Cokes.

Then and Now: Snowmobiling

NOW

Snowmobiling has changed so much since I was a kid. It is much less social now and more about riding and exploring. Back in the 80s I do remember rides were not very far. Just far enough to say you went somewhere else to have a drink and lunch.

THEN

Cookouts and Weiner roasts! You can see me mustard up a hotdog while John Sill is cooking his.

John Sill and Grant Peeling having a long discussion about the 1989 Arctic Cat Jag dad purchased from Stoney Point Marina. Every snowmobile in these pictures Dad had to put new pistons into them as I had a habit of blowing them up. It kept Mr. Knox busy at Kosh Lake Marina.

I do not own property on Kasshabog Lake. It is my life goal to do so. That said every chance I get to go to Kosh I do. I still work the lake in Real Estate, fish and boat here.

THEN

My very first fish. This would have been caught right beside Woods Island in front of Moores Bay Cottages

THEN

My pride and joy boat. I put many an hour exploring every last bay in Kasshabog with this boat. Look at the flow of hair I had. WOW

Then and Now: GKS Cottages (Green, Kyle and Sinclair)

These cottages would be found at the end of FR 99 just past Stoney Point Marina. I would say these pictures are from the 90s. This property had a house and 2 cottages. Currently, all three buildings have been renovated and look amazing.

Then and Now: Battleship Island (winter and spring)

I was looking for old shots of Battleship. No luck. Before the flag was installed by Ken Thompson (I believe it was Ken) there were two Jack Pines on the island looking like steam stacks.
