FROM THE DOCKS

As this news letter goes out it marks the beginning of my 6th year with LPYRC. I have enjoyed working with a great membership and staff and hope to add several more years behind the wheel as your Marina Manager. Summer has finally begun and with it is the constant and steady blistering heat and also a unpredictable hurricane season. The heat tends to slow down a lot of boat traffic but I am seeing more and more boats of all sizes adding “mister systems” to their boats. One company, Mister-Comfort has a great marine application and by adding some ice to the water reservoir the mist effect brings the temperature around you down a solid 20 degrees. These units are very compact and fairly priced.

As for the hurricane season, please keep your boat prepped and ready with extra lines and go ahead and remove extraneous stuff like paddle boards and kayaks so those items won’t slow your precious time down if a storm bears down on us. Another very useful tip is to bring some spare sheets or towels to the boat. When storing your bimini top curtains/windows (eisenglass) it’s very important to put sheets between the plastic so they won’t stick to each other, otherwise you will be left with a haze in the glass that will obstruct your ability to see after you reinstall them.

Lastly, keep your boat’s fuel topped off so if you need to relocate you will have plenty of fuel to get there. Please be safe out there and bring plenty of water with you.
 
I am pleased to share with you that LPYRC has been picked the “Top Marina” 2016/2017 on the entire east coast of the
United States by Active Captain.

Active Captain is the premier interactive cruising website for over 1.5 million traveling yachtsmen and their operating system is installed on all the new marine GPS navigation systems.

The top marina rating is complied by receiving more consecutive 5 star reviews by travelling yachtsmen than any other marina.

Most of the reviews mention the warmth and kindness of the club members, the cleanliness of the docks and clubhouse, the quality of the food and the attentive nature of our staff.

My hat is off to all our great members and staff for a job well done! Let’s keep it going for 2017/2018.


Zack Rice, Marina Manager
