Boat usage and repair log books


1. A usage log book for members who use the club boats to log which craft they are using.

2. A repairs log book for members to write up which boats need repairs.

This will enable us to do several very useful things;

1) Gather statistics on which are the popular boats so we can arrange to purchase more of the frequently used and popular craft.
2) Gather statistics on which boats get damaged regularly and if this relates to the frequency of their usage or perhaps is a design flaw that may steer us away from re-purchase of these craft in future if they are damaged frequently but are not paddled regularly.
3) As a safety measure if members are paddling alone and haven’t returned, unlikely but good practice to have an intentions log.
These books will reside on the pedestal in the ground floor entrance area of the club, please make every effort to use them for the intended purpose so we can better service the members needs with the appropriate equipment.

Many Thanks
SCC Committee
