Aug/Sep 2019 Commander’s Message

The dog days of summer are here and the weather reflects it. Too hot for
outdoor work, the varnish would just bubble up as soon as it is applied, the
metal too hot to handle. What is a boater to do? Inside work of course,
checking the fluid levels, watering batteries, polishing fuel, checking fuel
lines etc, etc, etc….. The joys of owning a boat!

Now would also be a good time to take stock of that inventory sitting around
in the lazarette. Making sure everything is in date, replacing those that
aren’t. Items like flares, fire extinguishers, impellers, fuel filters etc.
Now you and your boat will be ready for your next outing on the water.
Speaking of the water. Our next club meeting will be out at Pickwick! It will
be a beautiful time of year to take in the sights of the state park at Pickwick
Landing, enjoy a meal at the Inn with friends and meet up for a picnic at
Pavilion 5. Check out the details in the newsletter! Mark your calendars and
plan on joining us.

Wishing you fair winds and following seas,

Barbara
