Blogging, It's a Lifestyle
CBI has a new website. We've tried to make the web site work better and present CBI with more pictures, more video, more fun, more excitement...in short more of everything that we think makes CBI so special.
In addition to our email newsletter we are using Facebook, Twitter, and You Tube. You can expect to see more and more of our communication through these media.
CBI is adding two Sonars to out fleet. They'll be coming online in the next few months.
And about those pink bouys at the top of the Mercuries..... Some of you may have noticed a shocking pink splash of color living at the top of our Mercury masts this spring. This came out of experiments last year with various floats at the top of the masts. Our goal here is twofold. One, to minimize the number of capsized Mercuries that "turtle", turning fully upside-down and sticking their mast into the mud, and two, increase visibility of our fleet. Anyone who has ever had to evacuate our entire fleet of sailboats from the river in advance of a summer thunderstorm can appreciate improving our ability to identify our boats. As is our usual method we are constantly testing ways to improve our programming and on-the-water safety. Our hope is that the new bright floats at the top of the mast will serve this purpose.
There's much more to report but I want to save that for my next postings. So stay tuned. Finally, I want to express a big thank you to the many volunteers who have been helping in the shop this past winter and at work parties. Thank you!
