Our fleet captains, with the help of bosuns as needed, are responsible for the good working order of our fleet. They arrange maintenance as needed, offering work hours to members who contribute their time to repair our equipment and maximize its availability for enjoyment on the water. They coordinate with the Commodore and Treasurer to ensure we have the required parts for that purpose, and inform the steering committee about the general condition of our fleet and our members' needs and wishes for equipment.
