Save Our Deck
We need a new deck as our current one has passed its best by dateNelson / Tasman
The Pohara Boat Club was inaugurated on the 29th November 1960 by Fred Ashford & Brian McKenna, in Fred's lounge. Later moving to the Pohara Beach Sailing Club which opened in 1962 across the road from the Pohara Beach.
In 2002 the new club house was opened in its current location at Port Tarakohe, overlooking the harbour and Pohara Beach.
A couple of name changes, thousands of kids taught to sail and the incorporation of all boating types the club is asking for your help.
The Deck at the Pohara Boat Club needs replacing.
The current deck is original from when the building was built over 20 years ago, over time it has started leaking into the boat shed below causing a beam to rot & require replacing to.
Due to the position of the deck and the location, its not an easy repair job, the deck doors will need to come out, wall boards removed before work can begin on replacing the deck, this makes it an expensive task.
A dedicated team of builders along with some volunteers will be tackling the task.
We are applying for grants from other sources of funding but need your help to achieve our goal..
Every dollar counts!
The deck is a very popular spot for diners in the Summer enjoying the view overlooking Port Tarakohe Harbour and around to Pohara Beach
Use of funds
The money will be spend on a new beam and new decking materials along with labor costs.
Any surplus money will be put towards our Junior Sailing program - Getting kids off devices and on the water.
