The History of CBI and our Unique Place in the World.

Community Boating Inc. is the nation's oldest and largest community sailing program.  Founded in 1946, CBI brought together all interested parties who were engaged in developing a public sailing program here on the Charles River.  Joe Lee was the vissionary leader who first got children sailing on the river in the 1930's.  It took a bit of sorting out over 10 years but eventually the result is what we've got today - a true community of sailors, and volunteers.  It is a regular occurance for me to receive inquiries from individuals trying to organize  public sailing programs in their own community.  In my experience CBI has hosted delegations from all over the US, Europe, and Asia.  They want to know how we operate, how our finances work, and what our relationship to government is.  We take some pride in being an open book and sharing what we know with anyone interested.  It is no small coincidence that there are many other organizations in the world today called "community boating".  I love it. It expands the meaning of the word "community".  So while you are here I hope you will appreciate that you are part of something special in the world, and whatever it is, it is s..p..r..e..a..d..i..n..g!
For an indepth understanding about the history of CBI in the early days, you should read an article recently published in Sea History, the publication of the National Maritime Historical Society.

I'd like to also thank and recognize CBI member, sailor, and volunteer Gary du Moulin, and my wife Mari Snow, who collaborated on the article and generously included me as an author, even though they did all the work.

  10. Poisoned bait is a common method for controlling rat populations, however is not as effective when there are other food sources around, such as garbage. Poisoned meats have been used for centuries for killing off wolves, birds that were seen to threaten crops, and against other creatures. This can be a problem, since a carcass which has been poisoned will kill not only the targeted animal,

  12. but also every other animal which feeds on the carcass. Humans have also been killed by coming in contact with poisoned meat, or by eating an animal which had fed on a poisoned carcass. This tool is also used to manage several caterpillars e.g. Spodoptera litura, fruit flies, snails and slugs, crabs etc.

  13. Adelaide is home to many species of cockroaches, including the Australian, American and smaller German varieties. The latter can pose a risk to electrical appliances, which they can invade. Cockroach droppings are also hazardous to health and can trigger asthma attacks and allergies. It is usually necessary to undertake a fumigation treatment to eradicate cockroaches. Our team understands the need to get rid of cockroaches without endangering your health in the long-term. We use cockroach bait gels together with pesticide fumigation with a low toxic formulation.etc. شركة مكافحة النمل الابيض بالدمام شركة رش مبيدات بالدمام شركة مكافحة حشرات بالاحساء شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض+++

  16. The relative warmth of Adelaide's climates makes it an attractive environment for rats and mice to thrive. These pests often infiltrate homes and set up camp in wall cavities and roofs. They can wreak havoc on your property as they chew through structures and furniture in hopes of locating food and sites for nesting. Their droppings can also cause myriad health problems. If you live close to restaurants or any other businesses related to food, you should be particularly wary of rat infestations. Flicks Adelaide's pest control team inspects homes for rats and mice. We also supply commercial rodent control solutions suited to restaurants and similar businesses..شركة تنظيف بمكة ,شركة تنظيف بخميس مشيط , شركة تنظيف فلل بجدة

  17. Possums in South Australia are protected under the National Parks and Wildlife Act, so harming them can result in you being made to pay heavy fines. A licensed pest manager from Flick can make a house call, set a trap on the roof of your home and catch the possum. Spiders Arachnids such as the venomous Redback spider not only look scary, they are also dangerous to humans. Spider control treatment is often necessary to keep them at bay and off your property. A qualified Flick technician can treat the danger zones in your home including cracks and crevices, lighting, doorways, external window areas, under seating and around down pipes. Such treatment can prevent spiders from proliferating and overrunning your home.
