We will begin our lay-up listings for other lake ports in the February issue. Please visit your local ports, accurately record the names of all vessels wintering there, and SEND US YOUR REPORTS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, so that our list in "Scanner" may be as complete, accurate and timely as we can make it. Please do not assume that we will know what is laid up at your local port, for we probably do not, and guessing is not allowed!
In the case of smaller boats included in your reports, please indicate what type of vessel is involved, so that we may list or exclude as may be appropriate. Our space is limited and for most ports we can list only major commercial vessels; we do not normally include in our listings small ferries, small tugs, workboats, derricks, scows, etc.
Any overflow of lay-up listings will be continued from February into the March issue, as well as any late reports, but we do wish to be timely in respect of lay-ups, and look forward to hearing from each of you soon.
Please remember that our Lay-Up Listings provide a good chance for YOU and all of our lake-area members to participate actively in the production of "Scanner", and to make it the kind of publication that we all wish it to be.
