BOAST 2021 Winterization Day
Published 10:25am on 16 Dec 2021
An interesting part of the BOAST program is about maintaining the OWSA sailboats. Our BOAST program director, Meredith Hall, and our fleet manager, Kiki, lead the way, as many of the BOAST members were able to come down for the winterization day in late November, with many hands making for fun, light work.
This year, we decided to keep Picaroon sail-ready for the Winter months, because that group wants to do the Sailing-on-Sundays. We emptied the boats of cushions and other weather sensitive items, tightened down all the tarps, and removed the sails and motors for on-shore storage. We will still need to come in periodically to check the tarps and remove any water, but now we can worry less!
