Port Captain Report July 2018

Here we are at the last month that this year's work party hours can be performed for 2018. There are a couple of projects that need to be done. Please contact Paul Stephens, Bob Pritchard, or Marji Clune for the list. Also remember that you need to keep the grass under control (mowed) under your boat/trailer. With the dry weather that we are having and projected into the future we need to be proactive about the long grass and weeds.

Please remember if you are using someone else’s slip to contact that person before mooring your boat. There are several slips on E-dock that can be used, but if the slip has mooring line someone is already using that slip. I know that this is an obvious statement—it is just a reminder.    

Rich Aaring, Bill Boyce, and I did the walk through of the trailers checking for operational smoke detector and 10-lb fire extinguishers. It was done after the May date to allow trailer owners to check and update their fire extinguishers. There were several smoke detectors that did not work, perhaps because of bad batteries. Rich will be sending out a letter to the trailer owners that did not pass inspection. We also found several extension cords that were used on several decks with operational equipment attached and the member was not on the grounds, which violates the ground rules about extension cord (See moorage rule 17a).

The online moorage and the posted moorage at the YotPot is up to date as of July 1st if you wish to look up moorage information. You can also email me or contact me at 541-913-3400 (cell) or 541-344-1353 (work).

Happy Sailing hope to see you at the club.
