Housekeeping and Winter Reminders
I have been asked by the committee to remind all members to (a) do
their own washing up or put in dish washer, and not just leave things
in the sink. (b) leave the galley area as they would wish to find it
and (c) take your rubbish home with you whenever possible. Thanks folks.
Winter's coming but NOW is the time to start
thinking about winterizing your boats. If you don't believe me just
take a wander up the bank a look at the state of some of the dinghies
and their covers. Some simple precautions taken early can make all the
1. Check your boat for flaky varnish and paint (inside and out) and, if possible, do something about it.
2. Check your boat cover, is it still waterproof? Are it's securing straps still good?
3. Check your pickets and tie down lines. Are they secure?
4. Do your hull bungs and or self bailers work okay?
Have you ever seen the damage ice can do to a boat because rain water
can't drain out?
