Fred Korff is the Harbormaster in charge of rentals at both Brock Basin and
Hall Haven, He also oversees operations in both and indicates to the Association the
need for construction of new slips when they are required. He says that increases in
the price of gasoline have not decreased the demand for slips. He estimates that if
and when new slips are needed they could be built in 30-^5 days. In view of that and
in view of the fact that in some 6 years there has r."5ver been a shortage of slips,
Fred contemplates no problem in this area.
For legal reasons, slips may be rented only to members of Pine Knoll Association
Inc, This may be regretable, but that is the way it has to be. The rents charged have
been fixed with a view to having the slips pay for themselves, i.e. to reimburse the
Association for the total cost of the slips, to pay operational expenses and to defray
the cost of building new slips as required.
Literally thousands of dollars worth of free labor has been performed by Associa
tion members in perfecting the two marinas. The Harbormaster states that only through
such unselfish work could the marinas have been made and kept operational and that only
by reason of that free labor could slip rentals be maintained at so reasonable a rate -
a rate far less than the mainland's commercial rate. Another example of service

executioner or was it a ’'man*'?
Thanks to Doug Fleming for clearing his large lot on Salter Path, It is located
in a prominent place at the entrance of our Town and it is good to have it in shape as
Spring gets under way.
