Cold Spring Boat Cub Gears Up for Spring

Club members (L to R) Charlie Caputo,Tim Corless, David Price, and Dennis Barcavage preparing docks.

An annual rite for spring took place on Saturday, March 12 as members of the Cold Spring Boat Club began getting docks and equipment ready for installation in the river over the next few weeks. The docks are removed each fall before winter freeze up and reinstalled in the Spring. The club requires each member to put in 35 hours of work each year to set up its boating facilities and maintain the property. “The club has Philipstown members from all walks of life who share a common interest in boating. It provides a gateway to the river that brings hundreds of boat-borne visitors to Cold Spring shops and restaurants each season” said club member Robert Plant. He said that next Saturday, March 19 will be an “all hands on deck” work party that will start to put the docks back into the river.
       The boat club has received a lot of attention in recent months regarding cleanup of coal tar deposits found underground as well as the future role of the club, which has been discussed numerous times during the drafting of the Cold Spring’s new Comprehensive Plan.
