An overheated engine is never good, and it always seems to happen at the worst of times. In the third of his three GLCC School diesel maintenance webinars Jim Zima, owner of Great Lakes Diesel in Huron ,Ohio, will lead you through how to prevent diesel cooling system issues and what to do when they occur. From the GLCC School to the Annapolis Cruisers University Jim Zima shows us that he is not only a master mechanic but a great teacher. Join us on Thursday, February 21, at 8:00 pm Eastern/7:00 pm Central, for I'm Cool But My Diesel is Hot! Click here for more information and to register for class. Note that this is the third in a 3-part diesel maintenance package which may be purchased at a special discount. You will receive links to recordings for the first two webinars and be able to participate in this third live webinar.
Please join us in welcoming Mary Micket as newly appointed Port Captain for Irondequoit Bay, N.Y. (O-5.7). Mary has volunteered the past few years in the GLCC booth at the Toronto Boat Show and attended the Lake Ontario Rally for many years. This year she is part of the event’s planning committee. As Port Captain, she looks forward to helping fellow GLCC cruisers visiting Irondequoit Bay. Here's a bit about her and her husband's crusing experiences...
My husband Wes and I began boating in the late 1980s by renting house boats and cruising in the Thousand Island area of the St. Lawrence River. In 2001 we purchased our first boat, a 32-foot Wellcraft cabin cruiser. Southpoint Marina in the Irondequiot Bay is minutes from our home and we enjoyed many nice weeknights onboard after work.

Congratulations to newly appointed Port Captains George Dew and Hélène Carrière for Collins Bay, Ont. (O-14)!
George is a retired engineer / project manager; Hélène is a retired university administrator. Residents of Gatineau, Québec, they have sailed out of Collins Bay since 2017.
Both learned to sail while members of the Georgian Bay Sailing Centre, which operated out of Parry Sound in the early 1980s. From the first time they met on a dock in Parry Sound they cruised together on the club’s Edel 22 and Gib’Sea 36. During that time George’s experience also included two Great Lakes transport trips between Parry Sound and Kingston (Lake Ontario) via the lakes and the Welland Canal. Please click here to read on.
