Jackson Creek Crane: SERVICE UPDATE

Brian Ankrom on

Clubhouse News

The crane on the Jackson Creek bulkhead has been cleared for light boat use - such as J/70's, J/24's, and Flying Scots.

Larger boats, like the Tartan 10 are too heavy for the current configuration.  Please check with Docks Chair if you have an operational or compatability question.

Thank you for your patience.
