Hey all. Im new to teh boating world, and Im the proud slave to a 1965 36 foot Cavalier, moored in Port Moddy BC.

I just wanted to let it be known Im here and not to be suppeized when I ask thousands of questions.
Thanks
Its better to keep your mouth shut and have people think your a fool as opposed to opening it and remove all doubt

Welcome, Get ready to learn all about your boat. Is it the double cabin model? If so, I too owned the same model 3 boats back. Great boat! :wink:

Welcome to the CCABC, Tangleheart! I am just down the road 40 minutes or so from you in Calgary - there are several club members and classic boat entusiasts in Calgary. You have come to the right place if you have lots of questions, I can assure you.

Now, Olds is not exactly proximal to Port Moody - do you have a place out there?

Matt,
Extremely disappointed in our Canadian Brethren..I thought for sure one of them would have defended the great heritage of Canadian boat builders...it is Friday, they have probably been at the bar..
