  1. It would be very beneficial if you could remove the abandoned derelict boats on the north side of Horton Bay. Many have been there for 10 or more years. There is also an abandoned skiff at the top of the boat launch. It has been there for three years. There are also wooden structures that have been built. They should also be removed as they are not legal. They and the boats impede access to the shoreline at higher tide.

    1. Unfortunately derelict vessel cleanup and removal is beyond the scope of the annual volunteer run beach cleanup. All materials removed from beaches during this event are brought to the recycling station and sorted before being taken off island by the Recycling Society (who have a tiny budget as we all know).
