To The Daily Sun,
As president of the Quayside Yacht Club and on behalf of its board of directors and club members I would like to sincerely thank Fire Chief David Bengtson and the Moultonborough firefighters for saving our 110 slip marina. I would also like to thank the fire boat crews from Tuftonboro, Meredith, and Gilford who responded and assisted in the fire. To the unnamed Moultonborough police officer who certainly helped to save the marina by moving an adjacent boat — we are extremely grateful.
These firefighters worked under extreme and dangerous conditions. One boat had approximately 200 gallons of gasoline on board that blew up and access to the dock area was limited. This particular section of our marina is called the back dock and is a long way from the dry hydrant.
The Yacht Club would also like to thank the Moultonborough Fire Department for working with us in placing fire extinguishers in different locations throughout the marina and for helping us procure and train on an ALS life support automatic defibrillator.
Thank you, Moultonborough Fire Department, for always being there whenever we needed your assistance or advice on anything having to do with safety.
President, Quayside Yacht Club
