THE NEW RULES DISCUSSION —–
LOTS OF TALK AND INTEREST RE THIS SUBJECT. Various changes were made and voted upon. George kept track and made notes on these.
He will present an amended copy for approval at the next meeting? One point of interest that was clarified was in regard to boat owners who have somebody else (who knows HOW TO DRIVE) run their boat for them. Any points garnered go to the BOAT OWNER ONLY by vote.
Re the new motors – Voted to use the Leopard 3660 if you wish to replace any Acqua Craft 2030 motors you may wish to replace. This will be legal anywhere a 2030 is legal now ……. You may continue to use the 2030 or 1800 motor if you desire to do so.
