      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

C&C owners, need parts?

Recommended Posts

A week or so ago I took a trip to South Shore Yachts in Niagara-on-the-Lake in Ontario Canada.  I needed parts for my boat that needed to be custom manufactured and this company is the last bastion of all old C&C information.

I picked up a new stern rail, some toe rail, rubbing strip, stanchions and some stanchion bases which were custom cast in metal.  (Way stronger than the original plastic).

While there I got to speak with Cody who showed me all the original drawings for pretty much every part of every C&C ever built.   This a great resource if you need parts.

On the return trip I stopped off at the border to get my receipts stamped by customs for exporting the equipment.  You are required to pay HST tax when you pick up but can claim it back when you prove export.  For me this was a refund of $350.  Make sure you get your receipts stamped and you will be OK. 

Bonus?  It's a wine making district that is now making some excellent wines.  Government funding has encouraged growers to rip out native grapes and grow European varietals of venifera.

Odd coincidence. That’s the same source I went to when a friend broke the gooseneck on an old C&C 33. Shockingly reasonable prices for such a low volume part.

Thanks for the lead. Never knew this resource existed and I go down to Niagara at least once a month.

Glad you enjoyed your trip. There is so much to see in the region - summer or winter. Winston Churchill called the drive from the Falls to Old Fort Erie down the Niagara Parkway  “the prettiest Sunday drive in the world.”

The drive north from the Falls to Niagara-on-the-Lake ain't bad either.  Lots of history on both sides of the northern end of the Niagara River too - Fort Niagara on the US side and Fort George on the CAN side.  Plus there's a great view of the Toronto skyline from along the south shore of Lake Ontario.  Just west of the river is the northern terminus of the Welland Canal.  Well worth a visit to the area.  Be sure to check out Toronto if you do.

The guys at south shore yachts bought all of the parts, files, drawings etc from the Niagara on the lake factory after the fire. I picked up the original file/build sheets for my C&C 29. They know their stuff too. You’re right, they’re the best resource for the older C&C’s
