COVID Rules Update - Gym is back + QR Code - Reminder

With the re-easing of restrictions the gym is back in place.

Please continue to practise good hygiene - really just what you would expect at any time - wipe down machines between uses.

Keep using that QR Code people.


Riggers + Hulls = 😢😢😢 + 💰💰💰 - Reminder

Everytime a rigger touches a hull, an angel loses its wings: take care when moving boats in and around the racks.

Every scratch, dent, and ding on a hull is avoidable.

Every scratch dent, and ding on a hull reduces our pride in the fleet and costs money to repair.

Slow down, look more carefully, and communicate more between crew members when moving boats.

Do it for the angels.😇
