31 January 2017
As anyone using the club boatyard will know we have for several years been trying to reduce and remove storage from under boats during lay-up.
There is now a very high likelihood that we will need to move boats and re-organise the boat yard on a regular basis as Tarmount Hard progresses and work is planned and then started on the proposed flood defences.
For this reason and after much discussion the moorings and maintenance committee have agreed with the club Boatswains that all unauthorised storage under and around boats on lay-up must cease so that boat movements required can be undertaken without delay or unnecessary time being spent moving personal items.
