It's time to roll up those sleeves and contribute a some time to making our fleet shine.
These Fall work parties will focus on cleaning and protecting our Day Fleet (and potentially a few of the cruising boats as well as the seasons change).
The DSC needs willing and able volunteers to Clean, Oil, Sand and re-oil the teak on the boats in order to maintain its beauty and function.
In addition to restoring the teak, the boats need to be washed, compounded, and waxed to protect the gelcoat and help make this place glisten.
Not only do the boats need to be cleaned on the outside, but they need to be washed and dried on the inside as well. Each boat is used by hundreds of members and clients each year. Contribute to the DSC by suiting up and washing the boats' interiors.
Furthermore, we need to clean and grease the winches on many of the boats in the fleet. As fall breezes build and temperatures drop it is more important than ever to make sure the winches crank smoothly.
Lastly, we need to tip and scrub the boats to make sure they stay fast and free of damaging growth.
When registering for the work party, please specify what task you would like to complete. Whether sanding, scrubbing, polishing, or restoring - we need your help to make the DSC shine!
After cleaning the boats, all crew and skipper-level members are encouraged to go sailing for the frostbiting event to follow (from 1 - 4pm). Please register separately for this event, and I look forward to seeing everyone down in front of the docks on Saturday Morning.
