Boats In

Boats-In, our first opportunity to have our sail boats in the water, is coming up. We will be posting a date shortly!

Boats-In Preparation is an integral part of this event. There are a number of activities that need to be completed before boats can be put in the water. This is an important way to help out, especially if you cannot make the Boats In event. If you have some time prior to May 13th, email or phone me to help out with any of the following on any day:

Sail Boats:

  • Attaching Mooring Buoys in Marina
  • Towing two trailered sail boats to MYC
  • Painting sail boat hulls with bottom paint
  • Installing interior wood side railings on sail boat
