March 2020 Meeting Cancellation



March Meeting


Sailors Social


The only thing certain is change. Given the coronavirus outbreak this months meeting is cancelled. The board will resume club activities as soon as conditions improve.


We wish you and yours the best, and especially good health.


Always looking for recommendations for topics for winter membership meetings:


Commodore emeritus Sam Steel is trying to set up a diesel engine maintenance class for this spring... stay tuned.


Please accept this missive as notice to renew your club membership as the clubhouse will be available starting April 15th.


It is also of note that parking spaces adjacent to the clubhouse will be available to the first 10 members, on the basis of the date of their membership renewal, and at a cost of $50. It is noted that on popular dates, when Seward is packed, all the spaces may be taken. Come a day earlier and have even more fun.   


The April 16th Spring Membership meeting is postponed until further notice.


The next board meeting will be Wednesday April 1st, 17:30, at Turnagain Brewing Company, 7920 King Street, Anchorage, AK, is under review... perhaps a discussion via email.

Electronics, spoke with Jim Damore of Gold Star Alaska (Anchorage) about potential work on my vessel: $110/hour work time and $75/hour travel time.

Thanks to this years boat show hosts & the plan is for an even better presence at next years show.


Look forward to seeing you at our next meeting. In anticipation of our sailors social I reviewed out accounting records for boat ownership and found that over the last fifteen years we have spent about $16,000 a year to maintain our 2003 Island Packet 380... excluding interest and depreciation.
