Talk to Kingston Power and Sail Squadron

Good turnout last week for the talk given to members of the Kingston Power and Sail Squadron and their quests. The videos and slides that accompanied the presentation seemed to be well received and attracted a variety of interesting questions, and some valuable comments from well informed members of the audience.

Which Wrecks are your priority/favourite? POW Kingston
Mooring season is coming up and POW would like to know which wrecks are your favourite. When ever possible priority will be given to the desires of divers but you have to let us know what they are.

The most important (and expensive) annual project is placing the moorings at wrecks. With limited funds its best to allocate them where the divers and boats want to go.
It is not a one time thing to moor a wreck. The boat operators dedicate great effort, time and gas to the moorings over the season. The buoys get damaged, break loose, lines and chains break and they have to be replaced.

Here is a list of wrecks. So let us know what you want and check out the POW website:
