Row Captain Report April-2020
Jan Zweerts now Senior Row Captain.
In past years cell phone numbers have been the contact for residents to get ahold of the Row Captains. Many people no longer answer phones first time or have silenced them at night. That is no longer a good way to contact a Row Captain in an event.
I suggest banging an emergency signal on a steel piling to alert nearby residents and Row Captains.
Standard River Signal for Emergency only.
Five short bangs = Danger signal------Repeat until response is made
Rows B, C, E, F and parts of M-Walk West have wooden piles and will need some kind of device that can be hammered on to produce an alarm sound.
Further work on Emergency Protocols will need to be worked out among the Row Captains and Moorage Manager.

HARBOR MASTER COMMITTEE
The beginning of boating season also brought the Covid-19 pandemic with mandatory Sheltering in Place & Social Distancing Regulations. Since most of our work is done by canvassing the moorage for new and undocumented boats, not much has been done.
The recent sinking of a Jet Ski was addressed by the HMC. A couple of new boats have been issued stickers after presenting us with proper documentation. The current completed count stands at 115. When distancing restrictions are lifted, we can begin the process of determining which boats have returned to the moorage after being elsewhere for the winter and we can proceed with our annual canvass.
Meanwhile, the HMC encourages the Board to follow up on the existing monthly fines and continue to add fees to noncompliant residents.
A canoeist on the northeast end of Hayden Island died April 15, after his canoe capsized. There was one survivor. The deceased was NOT wearing a life jacket. Reminder to JBMI paddlers- if you do not have your own life vest, you may borrow one from the box on the office porch. This long time life vest "library" was initiated by JBMI member, many years ago. We thank him for his foresight & generosity. It has undoubtedly saved lives over the years.

ARCHITECTURAL COMMITTEE REPORT APRIL 21, 2020
Phyllis Allen, Bob Shepps, Mike Virgin, Bruce Montgomery, Rick Mills and Richard Sorem
Objective: The main objective of the ARC is to improve the overall appearance and to ensure that JBMI’s rules concerning member homes are in good condition and do not present a safety issue. The committee will be walking the moorage at least twice a year, report our findings to the manager and board, send out letters to members and follow up with members our findings.
Another area where ARC will be helpful is reviewing member requests for construction projects on their homes.
The ARC will be reviewing the rules and regulations approved by previous boards to ensure compliance. If those need to be updated, we will propose those changes to the board.
We agree that there needs to be a concentrated effort to help in getting JBMI looking better. So far with the help of the Diana, we have updated the committee walk through forms (sample).
Action Plan: With the COVID 19 issue we have not been able to meet but are planning to have a Zoom meeting next week. By the middle of May, we will have conducted a walk-through of the moorage to visually inspect member slips.
Items that we look for are:
If the condition of a home is a blatant disregard of being a good JBMI member or presents a safety issue, a different time allotment will be provided.
The committee is hopeful that the JBMI Board will be supportive of the committee’s efforts.
