Meetings & Minutes
NOTE our new meeting place for the year: Alexandria Police HQ at 3600 Wheeler Ave, Alexandria. The July 8 meeting will be held there.
Claire Wyngaard will talk about marina shore power problems. Marina shore power upgrades improve safety and can reveal hidden problems in your boat. She will discuss how to find the problem, if your boat trips the shore power ground fault protection device. The talk is based on experience and is written by David Turley with assistance from Claire.
