Discussion on the fee for moving trailer moving boats and estimated an annual billing of ~$3000.00 and suggesting possible billing avenues to reduce this annual expense. There could be a payback of two or three years for an electric/hydraulic trailer to shunt boats from the wharf to the yard and back. There is a requirement to move smaller boats and trailers as well. There could be a possibility to acquire some equipment or rent to achieve the task at hand. Need to acquire before haul out giving an immediate payback. There is sufficient resources to acquire the trailer and there is pending new members joining in the spring.
Motion by George Walker to move forward in purchase of said equipment offer $2500 but pay $3000 if necessary 2nd by Derek Ingleton. Passed.
Haul out scheduled for September 18, 2010
Member Chris Northrup has not paid to re-join and has a standing balance from last year. Suggest giving him a call and give him till the end of the month or 30 days to pay up or return the keys to the facilities. Least effective is a letter and a personal visit most effective. To be called this week. Bart Day still has a balance showing and has quit membership but may rejoin next year.
