Canadian YachtingCanadian Yachting Magazine is providing a new member benefit for all CPS-ECP family members starting with the February 2018 issue of the magazine. 

Currently, one copy of Canadian Yachting is delivered to the mailing address of the primary family member for CPS-ECP members, for each issue of the magazine. All other family members share that one copy in their household.

As a benefit to CPS-ECP family members, a free digital version of Canadian Yachting will now be delivered by email through CPS-ECP, to all other CPS-ECP family members with a valid email address registered with CPS-ECP. Family members will now have direct access to Canadian Yachting and the Port Hole for every issue. The primary family member will continue to receive the printed magazine at their current mailing address.

Family members will have the option to unsubscribe from receiving the magazine if they wish, and family members who currently do not have a valid email address on record with CPS-ECP are encouraged to go online and update their member profile in order to begin to receive their digital copy of Canadian Yachting right away. Those who need assistance to update or register their email address should contact Stella Mbuyi at the National office by email: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Volvo Penta 130 and 150 SaildrivesOnce our boat comes out of the water, I take the annual fall tour of the hull so I can determine what to worry about all winter. The first thing I note is that the sacrificial anode I had intended to replace prior to launch last spring remains un-replaced.

I recall, as I look blankly at it, that my plan was to attach a brand new anode that I got from the previous owner many years ago, but when I removed it from its packaging, it was clear it wasn’t the correct match for my drive. Perhaps that’s why he hadn’t installed it. And why I went no further.
