Reminders on Boat Care & River Navigation

We have enjoyed some good water levels for the past few weeks however as we head into the heat of July, water levels will drop. Please use extra care when launching and returning to the boat ramp.

  • The best practice is to wade out to the river to your knees when launching and on the return, control your boat speed. Several boats have been scratched recently due to the rock bottom at the boat ramp.
  • We have purchased boat polish and cleaning rags. If you are a primary user of a specific Club Boat, you should consider polishing up the boat for the rest of the season. Since our boats are stored outside, they do collect a variety of mess (tree sap, bird droppings, etc.), in addition to the water stains from the river. The instructions on how to use the polish can be found in the back shed with the polish.
