Mississippi River At Alton, Illinois

Alton Calling On FEMA For Riverview Drive Assistance........

 

On Monday, Alton city officials delayed a decision on what to do with the damaged retaining wall along Riverview Drive.  The retaining wall sustained damage during this past spring's flooding.

 

According to Alton's Public Works Director, Bob Barnhart, they have three plans for stabilizing the retaining wall as it is.  The plans do nothing to restore the retaining wall to pre-flooding condition.

 

The damage first appeared after the heavy spring rainfall.  The city has requested disaster relief funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to assist with the costs of repairs, which could run over $550,000........

Mississippi River At Hannibal, Missouri

History Museum Set To Close........

 

Even though this year is Hannibal's bicentennial year, the Hannibal History Museum is set to close.  Museum co-founder Ken Marks says that the community is allowing it's history to die, and that donations are needed to save the museum.

 

Marks states that the museum is closing because expenses like rent and utilities are too expensive.  The museum costs $26,000 per year to operate.

 

He says that he is most proud of the Steampunk Festival, an annual event that draws 8,000 visitors into Hannibal each year.  Marks notes that his greatest disappointment is not being able to complete some of the museum's displays........

Mississippi River At Quincy, Illinois

Adams County To Help Develop Quincy Riverfront Master Plan........

 

On Tuesday, the Adams County Board voted 12-5 to enter into an intergovernmental agreement with the Quincy Park Board and the Quincy City Council to develop a riverfront master plan for Quincy.

 

The proposal will have the county adding $250,000 in funding to the city of Quincy's $150,000 to be put towards the development of a draft plan for the city's riverfront.

 

The Quincy Park District will not be funding anything upfront, however, it will offer input on the plan and will be primarily responsible for the maintenance of any improvements..........

Boater Retention

First Time Buyers, Retention Decreasing........

 

According to research released during MRAA's Dealer Week in Tampa, Florida fist time boat buyers are decreasing and retention rates are decreasing as well.

 

Phil Smoker of Smoker Craft says that even with a solid recovery in boat sales following the Great Recession, a look at the bigger picture may be a bit of a surprise.

 

While first time boat buyers in 2000 made up 42 percent of sales, by 2018, that number had fallen to 31 percent.  Boater retention has taken a hit as well.  InfoLink data reveals that of the 380,000 first time buyers in 2013, 39 percent had quit boating by 2018........

Boat Manufacturer

Lund Introduces Two New Pro Guide Models........

 

Since 1948, Lund has been building what they claim are "the most innovative tiller fishing boats in the industry", and for 2020, the company is introducing two new tiller models, the 1675 and 1775 Pro Guides.

 

Rory Wiebe, Lund product manager, says that the ability to steer the boat from the rear offers the ultimate in boat control, and the tiller allows the fisherman to stay put and ultimately catch more fish.

 

The 1675 and 1775 Pro Guides offer a twin-plated bow which provides added durability in rough conditions as well as Lund's patented IPS Hull of increased performance........

Bloch Marine Service

Yacht Club of St. Louis Location......

 

Hello Everyone!
We are happy to announce that Bloch Marine Service is becoming Yacht Club Marine. As of October 1st, 2019, Bloch Marine Service will no longer be taking new work orders, and will cease operations by October 31st, 2019.
But to keep service seamless, Yacht Club Marine will be performing the same quality service that you have come to expect over the years at both the Yacht Club of St. Louis and at Harbor Point Marina.
With that said, the winterization season is just around the corner, and it's time to get on the schedule to have expert winterization performed on your boat to protect it from the ravages of winter freezing. And also, winter is the best time to have Yacht Club Marine perform that much needed maintenance or big project that you have been putting off.
If your winterization request is received before October 15th, 2019, you will receive a 10% discount on winterization labor.
There is also a 10% discount on labor performed during the winter months for those big or small projects that the boat may need.
Best regards, and we'll see you out there!
The Yacht Club Marine Crew.

As the weather we have had this year with Heavy heart The event is going to be pushed till next year. 2020 The River levels we have had this year there is still no docks currently at New Athens, Water is still high on the Mississippi and the sandbar is still currently under water & still alot of floating logs in the Mississippi and Safety is a top priority. All Company's that have donated towards the event will remain the same. If anyone is interested in their Company joining for next year please reach out to me. All Tshirts sales will remain the same and Store will open up next year to purchase Tshirts. If you are interested in a Refund please always reach out if not your order will remain the same and your order will be sent out before the event next year. A date is not set in stone but will be set shortly. Possibly Labor day weekend have a tie up in party cove on Kaskaskia for people that will be staying local. Thank you Any thoughts please post below...Happy Boating

Plans for the club.....
The Clubhouse is insured with FEMA. The adjusters have been through the club and will hopefully be letting us know in the next coming weeks whether or not the building is repairable. We are on hold until that point.
The club got approximately 6 ft of water, covering all electric panels and all AC units. So clean up of building is taking longer while getting temp electric/water going.
I understand there is a lot of speculation, but there will be a club/pool at the harbor
We are doing the best we can and I will keep you informed as we hear.
Sorry, as I know this is not the season you were hoping for.
