OC1 Caring for your Canoe – New dates – May 8th, May 9th and May 15th

Caring for your Canoe: OC-1 Maintenance – new dates plus an additional session added

Susan Mott, FCRCC’s equipment and repairs team member will be holding a 1.5-hour session to show the basics of OC-1 maintenance and answer any questions.

Susan has a love of canoes and hates to see them not cared for.  COVID-19 has seen an uptake in the purchase of canoes and with that comes the responsibility to take care of your shiny, new and slightly expensive boat.

The session will be held at the FCRCC Burrard Compound, weather permitting.  If the weather is not co-operating, an alternate location will be announced.

These sessions were a big hit last year and have been filling up quickly.  COVID safety precautions will be in place.  Mask wearing is mandatory.

Private boat owners may bring their boats if they wish.


Saturday, May 8th, 8:30 am to 10:00 am – Session is FULL

“Susan exceeded my expectations, she has a huge wealth of knowledge on boat maintenance and was happy to give us as much as we could take in”

“Susan gave us a wealth of information and was a real confidence builder for a new boat owner.”

“Susan gave us much more than I expected, more topics covered, more advice given, more tips given for helping us keep our boats in top condition. Susan also told us what to expect as the boats aged, what repairs we would need to do and the best places where we could find help and supplies.”
