Winter boat storage will soon be upon us so it would be timely to start sorting out some of the junk and mess that seems to accumulate in the boatshed during the season.
Of particular concern are the numbers of abandoned masts and booms which bear no identification whatsoever and which seem to have been resident for some time.
A condition of most insurance policies is that such parts are clearly identified with boat number/name etc and doing this would also be a big help in managing the sheds. Therefore, could owners please ensure that their equipment is clearly marked before winter storage takes place in November.
Equipment which remains unidentified after this time may have to be disposed of or moved to the back of the boatshed so as to free up space for others.
Thanks for your cooperation.
