Sail boat haulout

I wanted to thank everyone who participated, for a very successful sailboat haul-out this past Sunday. 11 boats & masts hauled & in the yard by 5pm.This included waiting a couple hours for the last 3 to be moved, after the crane left the wharf. We were very efficient, particularly with the masts, which were done in under 2 hrs. Almost everyone had a high level of preparation done, had good attitudes and stayed around to help others, even after their boat was out of the water. I know it was a long day, with some of us there all day Saturday & Sunday.
You all made my job easier…thank-you. Most importantly, no injuries or damage that I am aware of.

I special thank-you to Scott Langille who helped all day and didn’t even have a boat coming out !

Next task will be to get the dinghy docks out next week, so your tenders need to be removed by this weekend.

After that, I still hope to have a work day to sand & paint the lift trailer.

Thanks again.

Rail Haulout

Thank you to everyone for your help with the rail haul out this year. We had a few hiccups which slowed us down a bit but all and all it was a successful and most important accident free haul out. Thanks you for your hard work and input to the process.

As everyone knows the boats have been hauled/lifted/parked. It is now time to clear the dinghy docks so that we can deal with them. Please remove your dinghy as soon as possible.

Sorry. This has just been changed to Thursday. Jimmy from loyalist (who Mark Kierstead uses to haul his trailer) is not available Thursday.

Hello All,
We will be moving some cradles around Thursday night, 5:30pm. Some will need to be moved out of the way in order to get them onto the wharf.
At a minimum I need the owners of these cradles at the club by 5:30, Thursday but anyone else that can help is appreciated.

These cradles are being moved to the wharf:
Daryl Caines
Steve Larsen
Bruce Herrington
Chris Ross

These cradles will need to be moved out of the way:
Charlie Cook
Vic Stone

This is the planned order of placement in the yard(subject change depending on circumstances):

Rail Lauch June 10

I have had some feedback that people could use a bit more time to get their boats ready. That combined with the fact the a sailboat and rail system launch on the same day is probably not ideal I am going to move the rail launch to June 10th. Please forward me your insurance asap.
Thanks,
Jamie
