New C5 Owner... with a restoration on my hands!
« on: 30, June, 2011 - 15:06:48 »
Greetings.

I am a new C5 owner from Canada.  I purchased what I knew was going to be a restoration project from Sunderland, UK.  It arrived last week after being shipped by boat.

I will say on one hand I am truly excited to finally obtaining a C5.  (Here in Canada we were never 'in the loop' with interesting and unusual transportation options like the C5).

I look forward to connecting with some of you on the C5Alive forum for advice. 

At this point have begun the stripdown of the unit.  It needs a good cleaning, regreasing, and some cosmetic touches.  The motor works, not sure about the Control Box and the Pod?
All the best Joradio. (Joe)

Good to see a Canadian owner on here  8)

You'll find some useful info in the forum guide, and don't forget to download the owners manual. Should keep you out of mischief for a while  ;D
