We Need Your Help! The community is very thankful for the letters some of you wrote supporting the efforts concerning the no-wake zone for Twelve Mile Island (below). As of August, we need more! To make it simple, please download the following form, pass it around your boating friends and return it via mail (address on form): UPDATE: Several of us have met in early 2010 to discuss future efforts--check back for details.

Harrod's Creek Boat Owners Association

Looking to meet more boaters? The Harrod's Creek Boat Owners Association (HCBOA) sent me a copy of their membership application that is available for download. President Mark Windhorst reports, "New boaters would find it a great help to become part of a boating group and attend boating events." They have several annual events to include a Poker Run, Dinghy Run and Christmas Party.

Following is a link to the form as well as their website:

2nd: Thunder will be here a week early this year! For a free Vessel Safety Check, contact the Louisville Sail and Power Squadron. Also, they'll be at Marine Sales & Service on the morning of April 5th. You can also get one at the Cox Park Boat Ramp. Better to get a free one at no-jeopardy than find an issue on-the-water when you're talking to the guy with the ticket book!

29th: Another boat safety class just finished, this one featuring an 11-year old future boater. Thanks again to the Louisville Sail and Power Squadron for putting on a great class, and thanks to Marine Sales and Service for hosting the event. The facility was very nice, and the free pizza was the icing on the cake for the ten students who attended.


5th: We'd like to welcome True Course Captain's School back to town with a whole new set of future OUPV and Master Captains. Each class has an interesting mix of people, and this one is certainly no excpetion! To the left is Capt. Jim Sinclair, their instructor.

22nd: Here are some pictures from the Louisville Boat, RV & Sportshow... Check out the Port KY River Forum for more.

Above, Jeff from NMMA's "Fred's Shed" demonstrates the steering mechanism on a Mercruiser 3.0L with an Alpha One drive attached. This new NMMA program is sponsored by the NMMA and serves to educate the public on the mechanics behind our engines and drives.

Below, an local youth tries to put out a fire at the Louisville Sail and Power Squadron's booth featuring a flame simulator. Behind the scenes, Brenda was adjusting the controls to make the action more challenging.


18th: Next week is the Louisville Boat, RV & Sportshow. Can't wait! The smell of new fiberglass keeps me going until spring gets here.

1st: Happy New Year!
