OttawaMark your calendar now to participate in one of the best Conferences in many years. Volunteers and boaters from across North America will congregate in Ottawa to exchange ideas, have their say in the business of their national organization, attend workshops, network with old friends and meet new ones. It will be a working conference with time for a little fun and relaxation. We are excited to have you all as our guests and show you some real National Capital hospitality.

Our conference theme is “Captains and Mates – Boating Life”

We are celebrating our 80th Anniversary as an organization and we decided that you should travel light to Ottawa this year with your costumes. None of us have been around for the 80 years of the organization but it would be interesting for the Friday night festivities to see what you were wearing in the 50’s, through 80’s while boating.

What does Fall look like in Ottawa?

When Mother Nature cooperates, the leaves change to colours of golden reds, radiant yellows and vibrant oranges. Ottawa presents fabulous opportunities to experience the beauty of autumn. You really can’t go wrong attending a Conference in the Nation’s Capital.

Ottawa presents visitors with a wide selection of sightseeing and outdoor leisure options. In fact, with more than a dozen national museums and galleries Canada’s Capital Region has something for everyone. We plan to give you unforgettable experiences with the tours we have planned for your enjoyment.

Visit the National Website to register for the CPS-ECP Conference, book mealsand tours. The Full Conference Package includes Friday Theme Dinner and Party, Saturday AGM Luncheonand the Chief Commander’s Gala Dinner and Dance. After September 3, 2018 higher registration rates will apply.

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.
