General comments by vendor


Treasurer keeps a standing kitty. 

When kitty reaches certain level he makes a "call" to each shareholder for top up. A call is usually £500. If a call falls in my ownership I pay. If it falls after completion new owner pays. 
We have been owners since April 2014. The owners manage the boat themselves holding an AGM each November, when plans for the following year are discussed. 

The group is properly constituted with Chairman, Treasurer, Allocations Officer. 

Allocations are proposed by the appropriate officer at the AGM,, with matrix formula in place, so each owner has different dates each year. This works very well. 

In our 10 year ownership Blue Steel has cruised Burgundy, Loire, Rhone, Saone, Nivernais, Alsace, Paris, Belgium, Netherlands and the Moselle,in Germany. She is a well maintained and reliable craft.
