Sailing queries and advice / The pontoon
« Last post by DarrenW on July 14, 2020, 09:58:15 AM »
Would it be possible to lay out the law regarding use of the pontoon for PMSC members?
I've been asked to move, had my boat moved and even today, when I call Kings to let them know that i'm on the pontoon, made to feel like i'm intruding.

If you are still looking, best to email the mooring sec on, as there may be half-tide moorings available, but Ian does not come on to the forum.

Calling all Members....

If anyone has, or knows of any of the above being available for the club, or up for sale, please can the let the Committee know. We are in the process of acquiring craft, and thought it wise to ask the members first! Please spread the word.

Many thanks.

From what was said at the AGM, the bulk of the electricity bill was for the new cellar cooler, so a biomas / log burner would not help!

Solar panels are an interesting idea, although as I understand it most of the financial benefits are being taken away anytime soon - I guess a properly costed solar installation would be interesting to see, as to what would be the expected KWhrs produced in the summer against usage - we do have quite a lot of roof space that could be used.

One for the new Commodore to have a look at...?

Looking over last years accounts it appears that the club spent just over 7,000 on lighting and heating.
Would it be an option to install solar panels on the roof to reduce the amount of electricity we use.
Regarding heating: could a log burner or biomass boiler be an option?

For the benefit of other members I will relay what Gus told me...........

Gus built and paid for the pontoon and he owns it.  However the Pin Mill Bay Management Company made a (small) contribution towards it, as did our Sailing Club.  It is for the use of everybody for boarding and disembarking crew,  loading and unloading "stuff" and for launching and recovering dinghys.......  ie. SHORT-TERM use only. Boats may not be left there for any length of time and you may not work on a boat without first speaking to Gus.  Basically,  it is Gus's pontoon and he needs it for his operations.  He  allows people to use it as long as they don't clog it up!

Thanks Paul. After a chat with yourself and Gus everything is much more clear.
Many thanks.

Darren,  the Pontoon does not belong to the Club and as I understand it, is provided by King's Boatyard for the use of the whole Pin Mill community, which includes the Club.  I am not sure to what extent the Pin Mill Bay Management company are involved or pay for it, if at all,  but I will investigate and let you know.  Certainly it was put there by King's Boatyard and it has been maintained and extended by them.  I think before occupying the pontoon for any length of time you need to clear it with Gus because he does use it all the time in the course of his business.  I will ask Gus to clarify the situation and will let you know.......  Watch this space! :)
