Boats Parts Wanted

Spring is the hottest time of year for selling boat parts as skippers scramble to finish up their winter boat projects. If you’ve been storing excess boat parts with little likelihood of using them anytime in the future, consider donating them to the Club. You can do this by bringing them to the next meeting, or contact our Storekeeper – Leroy Newkirk at 214-503-0720, or
