Thank you to everyone for all the help with haul out this morning. Everything went very well and it is because of all of you that the operation went so smoothly.

The work party on the rail system tonight has been cancelled and is not required to be rescheduled. The haul out will start at 8am Saturday morning and would appreciate any help on that day.

Crane day thanks

Saturday’s sail-boat haul-out was a great success, with 5 boats & masts done in just over 2.5 hrs. This was possible because of the great help I had, both in numbers & the attitude of the people involved.
I really appreciate everyone’s effort, particularly those who did not have boats coming out. Since I’ve been involved, this has been the most efficient(translated cost-effective) haul-out or launch and we should be able to repeat this with good planning. We took notes on time on each boat, length of straps required and cradle placement.
Again, thanks to everyone for making my job easier.

Bruce H.

Quick Work Party

Hi everyone, we need a small work party prior to haul out this Saturday. Looking at the forecast Monday evening may be our best choice. Items to be taken care of include replacement of two sections of rail and hacking down of vegetation growing along the rails. Hoping we can get a small group together at 6pm Monday and knock this off in an hour or so. Any questions contact Jamie at 647-2670 or
