Harbour –  Report of the Harbourmaster   May 15th, 2012
Mooring Assignments:  Last Month at our executive meeting Ron Dow’s old mooring was transferred to George Walker.     George’s old mooring was transferred to Brad.   Note to Treasurer, please bill Brad for this mooring.

Mooring Found.   Yesterday during some routine work an old mooring was discovered and salvaged in the vicinity of Rick Wright’s mooring location.  Don’t worry Rick, this was not yours!   The log had obviously been on the bottom for a number of years.    This mooring has been hauled into our mooring recovery area and will be available for a larger vessel.    The block measures approx. 4 feet square by 18 inches deep.

There are still a number of moorings that have not been found.   I did find one on Monday and discovered that the Rope that was used to mark it was tightly curled.   Dragging the area with a grapple may help in making it float.

Please note that if your mooring has not surfaced you should at least drag the area with the grapple before asking for a dive to locate it.

As I have mentioned before, If you need a mooring and don’t have one, it is your responsibility to make the arrangements.   We do not rent moorings to members or anyone else.   Mooring belong to the members and are maintained by members. We do have some available at times, although I don’t know if they have been found yet.     We can’t launch your boat if you don’t have a place to tie it!   Please read our Mooring policy on the website.The Arbysea is available for members to use to rig their moorings.   Please keep your headlines short and in good condition.   Please wire all shackles.   If you have questions about any of this don’t hesitate to give me a call.   There are a number of us who can help.

The Gallows have been launched after some needed repairs were made,  Thanks Scott.

We are looking for a volunteer to repaint the No Wake Buoy.
