How Keelboat Status Works
Keelboat Status is now online so you can check whether boats are reserved, DNS, or out of service for maintenance on the website.
Go to Resources->Keelboat Status on the website, and you'll get a dashboard of all boats, with colors indicating status and a list of notifications.
There are three categories of notifications:
- Advice - general information, things to watch out for
- Reserved - boat reservations for cclub Cruises (official or earned private)
- DNS - Do Not Sail
The dashboard is color-coded based on these notificaitons. Note that reservations are only for Club Cruises (official or earned private). This is not a way to reserve a boat for any other purpose. We will continue to follow the first-come-first-served at the dock policy for all other uses.
Anyone can see the dashboard. Any logged-in member can see the dashboard and the notification details. Any Senior or Cruiser can add, edit, and delete notifications.
Just to be clear, the online sysem is running in parallel with a manual system, which is signs on the boats (for DNS, reservations, etc.). Please remember to update both, as some members don't have online access or just don't check.
If you run into any problems, click on Contact Webmaster on any web page and send the details.
