I'd like to cruise the bay, but I have concerns about putting my baby in the saltwater!

One of our members pretty much uses their 1962 Glasspar Avalon which they bought new almost exclusively in Saltwater and it looks pristine.

Be sure it's well waxed, rinse thoroughly and flush with fresh water. Take a look a Betty and Terry Gotwater's Avalon on the Day on the Delta thread that boat has been in the salt its entire life. Come with us and you can see my Seafair which spent much of its life in the salt and did not receive the kind of care that the Gotwaters have given their beauties.

I'm more concerned with the internal components of the outboard. I am very protective, due to the lack of available parts for repair or replacement. I plan on having the boat for a long time and want to avoid any corrosion issues altogether.

Hey all. I just picked up a 1966 Century Fibersport, the first year of the fiberglass hull for Century. My wife and I live in Auburn and are interested in doing some river boating along the Sac and/or American where we can launch somewhere relatively close by, cruise for a couple of hours, dock and eat a nice dinner, and then boat back to our launch site.

Any advice on routes, launch sites, places to eat (or stay overnight), etc.? We're looking forward to some fun adventures!
