RIVA AQUARAMA PROBLEM

I HAVE RECENTLY PURCHASED A RIVA AQUARAMA RADIO CONTROLLED BOAT. THE PACKAGE DID NOT COME WITH AN OWNER'S MANUAL. I RAN THE MOTORS ON DRY LAND TO SEE HOW LONG THE BATTERY WOULD LAST. AFTER A FEW MINUTES THE MOTOR SOUND BECAME UNEVEN AND THE STABOARD MOTOR STOPPED. NOW IF I RUN THE MOTORS, ONLY THE ONE ON THE PORT SIDE WORKS. I HAVE EXAMINED THE BOAT AND THERE APPEARS TO BE NO WAY OF OPENING THE BOAT TO CHECK WHAT HAS HAPPENED. CAN YOU GIVE ME SOME ADVICE ON HOW I CAN GET IT REPAIRED? I LIVE IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA.

You should never run the boat out of water! The shafts heat up in the shaft tube and freeze up. Then your done.
I own a company "H2O Hobbies"
We sell ready to run Riva boats such as yours. Many other people sell these same boats from the same manufacturer in vietnam. BUT - These are display all models.
My company works with the manufacturer to create each model with removable covers to access the motor etc... inside. The models are made waterproof by lining the inside of the hull with fiberglass. We use high quality brushless motors (1) with hardened steel u-joint coupling to the shaft which is 4mm stainless steel and attach a beril-copper balanced propeller. This setup is bulletproof. It took about a year of testing several different components to find the right set of matched components to get the best performance and reliability.
We use 2 7.2v battery packs in series = 14.4v.
See youtube videos - search scalemodelpowderful.
My suggestion is to put your boat on a shelf because that is what is was made for and buy one from us which is waterproof and accessable to work on if necessary. Go to H2OHobbies.com or call me 612-325-2345 - Mark I am the Director of product development. I build the RC boats myself.

My family has an old row boat at our cabin in IL. It was our grandpa's and The title is lost/not avaiable. Looking to use the boat with a 25 HP outboard but can't use it with out registration. Help


Rowing boats don't need title. However, when you add a motor :>)
http://www.marinetitle.com/boat-registration/IL-Illinois.htm

You can swear an affidavit that the boat is without title and was purchased in 19?? before title, and that the boat belongs to you by inheritance.

All boats must be registered except sailboards, boats used exclusively as a ship's lifeboat, boats while competing in any race approved by the Department, non-powered boats owned and operated on water completely impounded on land belonging to the owner of the watercraft (this does not apply to waters controlled by a club or association), or a canoe or kayak which is owned by an organization which is organized and conducted on a not-for-profit basis with no personal profit inuring to anyone as a result of the operation. Registration is also required for Coast Guard documented vessels. Boat registrations are renewed every three years.

The form is here, send it in as a new registration.

    Caravelle boat wiring schematic


    I doubt that you'll find one. For the engine package (harness) you'll be able to find a diagram in the applicable service manual or on line. As far as the wiring that Caravelle installed in your boat good luck. My advise is to look at Nigel Calders book " Boat owners Mechanical and Electrical Manual". Charlie Wing also wrote a good text. Unless it's been changed by some previous owner your boat's wiring will be color coded in line with the standards of the ABYC. Once you know the color code it's fairly simple to figure out the wiring. At about 12 years your boat is prime for a few electrical issues.

    Sirius Radio Invalid Channel message


    1) Do you have a Sirius account?

    2) Have you called Sirius and given the serial number of that receiver?

    Those are the first two things you have to do to get a Sirius receiver working. (The original owner could have changed his account to use his new receiver, if he has one.) Go to http://www.sirius.com/install - the "activate" part - for details.
