Thanks to all of you who have noted that the search feature is down, and indicating to us that you've been using it.

While it's down, here's how to search:

1.  Go to your favorite internet search feature (Google, Yahoo, etc.).

2.  Type in c34 and then the phrase you're looking for.

3.  Do the search.  My experience has been that it will only return one or two hits, and other results may be all over the place.

As noted, Dave Sanner, our webmaster is working with the software vendor and has a "ticket" in to them for the fix.

Thanks for your patience.

You can also use Google's "site:" tag to limit the search to the Catalina 34 website. For example, type

     site:c34.org impeller replacement

in the search field.

Don't use site:C34ia.org

Do use site:C34.org

That's simply how Google or your search engine works.

Local/Direct BBS search should be working for all again.

SEARCHING MADE EASIER

Thanks to Vice Commodore Sue Clancy, our new look website is now up and running (Ocotber 2016).

Searching is made a lot easier.

The new look is fantastic, shows the important material and includes the important Google search button right there.
