A letter from P/C Courteau's letter explained in detail the actions taken by his committee in establishing the revised slip lengths in 1999. P/C Caruso wrote of his desire to possibly purchase a larger boat for his current slip, which with the reduction in allowable boat length for his assigned slip would limit the selection of boats he would be able to purchase. A third letter from the House and Docks Committee advised that a boat in excess of 36' - 0' in length would, in their opinion, be detrimental to the safety of a part of the current dock system and could possibly create a hazard for boats approaching the fuel docks. They stated that from their observation the pilings in the west end of the docks are not in the best of condition. This in addition to the need to provide overall maintenance to the dock connectors along the entire dock.

length feasible to be accommodated by the PYC dock system. A letter was received from Rita Thornton informing the Board that she had sold her boat and had no further use of her slip.

The Board decided to follow the current House and Docks rules and leave the slip unassigned for the balance of the season. There being no additional new business Cmde.
