As many of you know I am out there hammering on the ACBS for lack of online substance. But I must say that when it comes to the Rudder it’s offline publication and putting on shows it does an amazing job. This latest issue of the Rudder is fantastic. There are great stories and coverage of the shows and the folks that make up the ACBS. One article stands out though, Designer and Illustrator Jack Brouwer of Grand Rapids, Michigan and his work for Century Boats in the 1950’s. Written by Dennis Hartnett of the Rudder staff. The Century Boat Company understood the power of great design and image use. Jack’s work is a huge part of that image. I might even say better than real life. The image/fantasy that Jack was able to capture still is true today, and in the end work that is timeless is always the sign of genius. The Rudder article has done a great job of giving Jack and others this Spring an opportunity to shine. Not to mention this weeks Woody Boater babe… Woohoo.. Way to go.You might like...

Do the compression test. As long as it is close I would leave the internals alone. 283 will run forever. One of the most problem areas I have found with them is the distributor. The springs and the weights tend to rust and get hung up. Most of the time they can be cleaned up and lubricated.SteveStatistics: Posted by Katanna — Thu Nov 23, 2017 12:01 pm […]

Hi CCABC FriendsI recently bought a 1964 Cavalier 26' Futura (to go along with my 1963) which has the original 283 motor. As I have all winter to work on the boat, I plan to restore as much of the running gear as possible. Since I have the cockpit sole torn out, now is the time to work on the motor/steering/fuel tank, etc. Pervious owner had boat for 33 […]
Hi CCABC FriendsI'm restoring a 1964 CC Cavalier that has the original cockpit flooring. (pic attached) I understand Nautolex no longer makes this material and it is out-of-stock with dealers. Does anyone know where some might be hidden? I will need 4 linear yards, depending on width. I need 2 pieces, 24" width, plus overlap of 4-5 inches and 1 pie […]
Going to try again to post a pic. I am slowly making process fabricating and dry fitting the outer planks. I can't beat the cold weather in time to use adhesives so I am satisfied to dry fit, gap and pre-drill so all will be ready come April. Over the winter I will finish all the side planking, finish bolting the chines to the frames, and get the solid […]
