At this point we are requesting input from the membership to address a number of points related to the proposed change house/winter storage building described in the previous post.

Question 1:      Would you be able to commit some amount of time this winter  and next summer to help with construction of the building  yes or no?  If yes, how much time?

Question 2:      Would you be interested in renting winter boat storage space in the new building, yes or no? Allotted spaces can accommodate boats up to the size of a Laser II.   Rental period would be from Oct 30 to May 1.

Question 3:    Regardless of your response to question 2, what do you feel would be a fair per winter storage fee, $50.00, $75.00 or $100.00?

Please send you responses By the End of December to Commodore John Barry,, with the subject heading – Site Development.
