Port Captain Report June 2018

I believe that I have taken care of all moorage issues, but if I have missed any, please contact me. You can check your moorage on the website or on the moorage board at the Yot Pot.

Also be aware that I will be checking for current OR registration on the laser rack as we are receiving so many requests for slips by the water. If your registration is not current, your watercraft will be moved to the new back rack. I have several people that would like to have a moorage in the laser rack who have current registration and who are regularly out sailing their boats. This will make the best use of these slips with highly prized locations (see Moorage Rule 11a). So if you do not wish to lose your laser rack moorage, then get current OR numbers. I have had several people send me scans of the temporary registration and that will work. At this time there are 12 watercraft without current registration in the rack. 

Trailer owners, just a reminder to make sure that a copy of your keys are in the emergency keys box that Rich Aaring keeps in his possession. Rich and I will be doing the walk through and trailer checking make sure that you have a 10 lb fire extinguisher and working smoke alarm (see Moorage Rule 17). We'll also be looking to see that Moorage Rule 17e is not being violated by any extension cords on your deck. Please get a copy of your keys to Rich so we can do the walk through this year without any issues.

As you are using your boat and are moored on the docks, please look at the hoops, pins, hinges, and tie-bars for the hinges and if you see cracks or other item that need attention please take care of them. On C Dock look under the mats that cover the hinge points and the small hinges. If repair is above your skill level, please contact Paul Stephens, or you can email me and I will forward to Paul.

Also, please do not leave your boats in the center island. Last weekend during the regatta there were several boats. Please move to Row J along the fence. This is for car parking and not boat storage as we are into the sailing season. I will be doing the walk around for moorage soon, so please have your boats in their correct summer moorage as this makes the job a little easier.

The last piece of news is that the club is looking into building one more Paddleboard / Kayak rack as this watercraft is becoming more popular at the club.

Happy Sailing, and hope to see you at the club
