Projects and Workparties

Current Projects:

  • Mast Lifting

work party will take place on Sunday 3rd November at 10.30 to assist those boat owners that require their mast to be lifted down from the top of their boat.

Trestles must be in place and suitable for the specific mast if this is done the work party should not take more than two hours.

Regards compound committee.

  • Dinghy Storage Area Fence

Work party required on Sunday 2nd and Sunday 9th June more possible to finish the construction of the retaining wall at the reclaimed land area.

Work party starting at 10.30 each morning.

If you have at your disposal a trowel, spirit level and a pair of work gloves that would be most appreciated.
George Hunter has very kindly volunteered to head up work party please let George know if you can attend as it would be preferable to split work parties between morning and afternoon shifts.

We trust we can rely on your good will and hopefully a good turn out. All help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards compound committee.

  • Slipway

Repair work to the lower slip is planned for this summer. Currently we do not see a need for a work party to assist in this.
Dates: TBC

Recent Completed Projects:

  • Dan Tent work party.

Sunday 3rd June 2018
Moving and re-positioning of the Dan tent from Solas to Traigh Mhor.
At least 12 people are required but more would be preferable for a couple of hours for this procedure to be carried out safely.
Your help would be much appreciated I hope we can count on your support.

Compound committee.

  • Compound work party

Wednesday 28th February 2018 for a few hours of your time.
There were a few tasks that required a number of people to lighten the load, starting at 11 o’clock, any help much appreciated.

Due to weather forecast, work party was changed to March 7th with an eleven o’clock start. Works needing done took around 2 to 3 hours, but whatever time you had was greatly appreciated.

Compound committee.

• Landing Pontoon Pump
A manual pump has been installed on the Landing Pontoon. This allows dinghies to be pumped dry before use.

• Additional access ladders on the NE wall.
We have installed additional ladders on the wall to ease the access to mooring chains. A fixed ladder at the scrubbing grid was also installed.

• Compound Drainage.
Ponding at the rear of the compound has been a problem for a number of years. We rectified this situation by getting a digger in to facilitate laying of a new drain. The water supply to the landing pontoon and island required to be realigned and this was done at the same time while the machine was on site.

• Cradle Mover.
There is often much movement of cradles required when preparing the compound for lift-out and often this takes place mid-week when few members are around to assist. It is a strenuous task and not without risk. To allow cradle movements to be undertaken safely and more easily a ‘Mark 1 Prototype’ cradle mover has been constructed and is currently under evaluation.

• Broadband/Wi-Fi.
We have installed Wi-Fi provision in the clubhouse. See notice in the clubhouse for the Wi-Fi password.
