    You can watch all episodes online here.  Up in Canada, it's on the Global network.

    I will watch it as soon as I can. Never heard of it either. BTW is just me or does Shop Shape TV really stink now. It just seems like a parts store ad.

    Great show...been watching it for years.... The best place to watch them is on line because the air time is usually on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The only negative about online is the latest ones aren't included for awhile... they will eventually show up. My favourites are the places they cruise, cruiser testing and the how to.

    They also have a magazine called Boats and Places.... they do three a season and usually include boat buyers guide with almost every type of boat and their pricing... a good guide. Here's their link:

    Yeah, pretty sure its filmed and broadcasted pretty much exclusively in Canada, but the episodes are available online.

    Yes, its a Canadian company. They have filmed in lots of locations over the years. Most of the shows are pretty good, like any show they've had the odd dog but usually interesting. Available on the internet. They used to have archived shows but not sure if they still do.. MT

    A benefit to living near Canada and getting their TV / Radio channels!  Not to mention 19y/o to drink (college days...).

    Yeah they seem to sometimes come over here - the recent 246 review was on the american side (from Hideaway harbor).

    BTW does the show come on CBC at all? Thats the only Canuckian channel I get. :)

    No, but after the show airs on Global, the show is posted on their website for viewing.

    J-13 - the CBC? God have mercy on you! Like Mark said I used to watch the show on Global but a lot of my friends just watch it via the internet. I think there are about 4 years of back shows on the net. There were some real good "how to fix it" segments and demonstrations from manufacturers of boating products too. MT

    Well beggers cant be choosers Mark. CBC is good for some off the wall old British TV shows and seeing what stupendously awful suit jacket Don Cherry is wearing.

    But yeah I've watched all the episodes online, and that what I'll have to do for future episodes too.

    Steve, I don't like VW diesels. I'd rather have Yanmars, Cummings, Perkins or Cats. I think Yanmar is in the lead when it comes to diesel applications with sterndrives, although I hear Merc is right in there too. I don't know what platform Merc bases its diesels on. MT
