Dock

OtherMay 10, 2024

Friday May 10 2024 around 3:30pm I realized we were very low with the tide. I went down to measure the South Float Dock level, near the south ramp (the closest part to the shore) and there was only 1 foot between the bottom of the float to the bottom of the river.

Nothing urgent to do now, but Amelia emailed James some photos, may want to look into this as a larger project to make sure we would never be in a situation where the float meets river bottom and damages the dock.

Roof drain clogged

Exterior (general)July 6, 2023

2 drains on roof (on on south float one on north float) are clogged and our plumbers can't figure out where the clog is - likely below where it leads into the river.

Andy reached out to try and get drawings for the float, however we cannot find these in UBC records.

Someone come out that can drill through?
