I am looking forward to a great year for our club. The turnout at the Strictly Sail show was overwhelming and there was a lot of interest in our club. My goal for the year is to make the club better than when I started. I see my role as a servant and I am here for the membership and to see that the club grows and continues on for the next generation. If there is ever anything I can do for any members of the club, or if you have any ideas, feel free to contact me at anytime.
Our guest speaker for February will be Don Baker from Battery Service Corporation, and his subjects will cover battery replacements, advances in battery construction, battery charging, battery maintenance, types of batteries and he will answer all battery questions. This is a very topical subject with spring fast approaching and many of us are wondering if your battery is good for another year. if you would like you can take a look at their website https://www.batteryservice.com/
This is the time of the year that we are all thinking of touchups that our boats need and planning our March and April weekends to do the work needed to prepare for another year. And if you are anything like me, you are planning for a May launch, and for me that never happens. Well this year will be different and I hope we all get the most hours possible on our boats, and get out on the water and enjoy a great boating season.
