BIAC's boatyard was functional in 2006 but at capacity and beginning to wear. The old boatyard was transformed to the new layout and rack assignments with new racks and oar lockers. Below is the history of this major project.
-BIAC would like to accomplish these in the boatyard:
- BIAC: Order a 60'x96' Cover-All shelter (by 3/24) - not done
Our footing details and a (1.6MB PDF) manufacturers brochure.
Status: postponed indefinitely
due to fire suppression requirements.
- BIAC: Clear the boatyard of shells and
racks (by 4/16)
- BIAC: Redesign our racks and a safer shell rack layout
original rack designs are here. (done - 13 new racks!)
