Harbour – Harbourmasters report Aug 20, 2013


1) Dragon Boat course has been set. Boats that need to be moved have been notified. Thanks to Scott for his help.
2) Mooring assigned to Steve Hanson. Ball and headlines installed.
3) Mooring assigned to Mike Kueppers. Ball and headlines installed.
4) Mooring owned by Andrew or Dudley has been temporarily located for the start boat for the DragonBoat festival.    Ownership of this mooring should be confirmed.  A non-member had rigged it this year and was sure that it belonged to him.    I had raised it to verify ownership and then removed it to a temporary location.
5) All moorings in the cove are now located on Navionics and identified by names of owners and the year they were last verified.
6) The vessel “Swept Away” owned by Art Breen, is temporarily located on one of our moorings in the south field.   His mooring is lost.  
7) Two of our used moorings in the south field have been rigged with white and blue mooring balls as guest moorings.   My policy has been to grant free use of these to members of other yacht clubs.
8) Moorings that are lost include: Mel Vincent’s, Ken Durning’s, Max Herrington’s(Eric’s), TerryTomney’s mooring in Cathlines Cove.
9) I have put a temporary ball on Mike Walsh’s old mooring for a new member but it needs a new top chain before it is turned over.   I believe that this mooring has been assigned but the name of the individual has never been communicated to me.
10) Recommendation that the mooring previously owned by Jim McAvity be assigned to Daryl Caines in trade for his (subject to a satisfactory survey).  
11) For people to be placed on the official list, paperwork needs to be given to me so that I can post it on the mailchimp server as well as authorize them for the website.    Unless someone gives me the application form, this cannot be completed.
