Great news - a new patrol boat!

Your Club takes delivery on the 5th April of a new Patrol Boat A Ribcraft 585 Reg No GBRIB00103L616 together with a Suzuki 70HP Outboard and a multiroller coaster road trailer.

Are we to give the new boat a name?

The name “Splendidly Orange” has already been suggested and the name “Orange Macboatface” is to be ruled
out!!! Suggestions for a name to one of the Directors by e-mail please. The suggestions will be considered at a meeting of the Directors on the 8th April. There maybe a prize for the author of the name used!!!
 
No longer to be referred to as a Safety Boat! The new craft is to be known as a Patrol Boat. This is a decree from upon high!!!
 
The cost of the new boat is close on £30,000. The basic boat costing £27,706 to which has to be added the cost of antifouling anchors, warps etc. The purchase is by way of a bank loan from HSBC together with a fund raised from members. The boat will be kept on a mooring during the season. The existing boat will be overhauled and used as a reserve craft for the sailing season 2017. Consideration will then be given as to its future in September.
 
Steve Hardman will be responsible for the instruction of crews on the handling of the new boat.
