On more than 1 occasion I flew a civil air patrol aircraft with a minor piece of inoperative installed equipment, such as a clock, not placarded inoperative in accordance with far 91.213. I was relying on the verbal assurances of the more experienced 'cap' members as to the legality. Most of my flying has been under an MEL program in part 121 flying, and I was unfamiliar with the maintenance requirements of part 91.
