RECOMMENDED LAUNCH ETIQUETTE

Paul Foght  | Published on Tuesday, April 1, 2014
A committee of members assigned to finding solutions to the congestion that sometimes develops at the dock has recommended five steps to help control traffic and reduce wait time.  The committee's recommendations are:
 
HAVE BOAT TOTALLY READY WHEN IT LEAVES THE COMPOUND.  Lifting straps and dock lines should be in place.
 
USE THE LAUNCH AREA ONLY TO LAUNCH AND LIFT-OUT.  Move the boat away from the cranes immediately after use.
 
FOR LIFT-OUT, KEEP CLEAR OF THE CRANES UNTIL READY TO LIFT
 
HELP OTHER BOATS
 
SHARE THE MULE
 
 
Members of the committee on launching problems are: Andy Kaiser, John Nelson, and Dave Samyn.
