How Do I Renew My CCABC Membership Online?

Hi Bill: I have read that it is possible to renew my CCABC membership online. I would love to do this and I already have a PayPal account with real money in it!

I just need to know what the online renewal procedure is.

Thanks,

The fungus that causes "dry rot" does not grow in salt water. I have my boat in salt water and rot has never been a problem in the bilge or the hull bottom. Fresh water causes the rot. As previously pointed out, salt cause lots of corrosion problems so I, too, would not intentionally put it in the b...

It sounds like the Bendix drive is bad as you mentioned. The Bendix drive incorporates a strong spring to keep the starter gear meshed to the flywheel ring gear until the engine starts. Have the starter rebuilt and tell the shop what the starter is doing and that you are using a 12v system. They wil...

The best place for "Boat For Sale" ads is the new Trading Dock. More room for photos, descriptions, etc. That's where everyone looks.

I hope to see your ads there so I can tell more about your boats.

Thanks.

Where is the helm (maybe you open the hatch) and is that a siren or spotlight on the "cabin" top? 40 mph; two gas tanks and two gas pumps? Look at how it sits in the water in the stern. Notice the emergency flotation stored on the dock.

What a boat!!

Salt water equipped?

As Paul said, our old boats did not come "salt water equipped." I use my CC cruiser in salt water and I installed an inlet connection for a fresh water hose (garden hose) at the cooling water inlet of the water pump. I run and flush my engine for 15 to 20 minutes at 1000 rpm after using it in salt w...

Fiberglass Sea Skiff

Hi Paul:

Thank you for your post. I have heard about fiberglass Sea Skiffs similar to the earlier wooden 22 and 23 foot CC skiffs. Do you have any other pictures that you could email? What engine does your boat have, etc.? Have you found any others?

Thanks,
Frank

Should re-torquing be done with the engine at operating temperature or cold, or doesn't it matter?

I found the torque sequence on Mitch La Pointe's web site but it does not specify the proper torque. Also, it says to re-torque the nuts twice with the engine hot. This is after ...

I found a parts store that had a listing for the JXD M engine (ask for a industrial engine parts catalog). The intake and exhaust valve guides are identical. Sealed Power number SEE VG414 or Manley 01006.

That matches the number in the old M engine parts book and my spares also have that number. The exhaust val...
