Wildwood Sailing Club
In getting the project underway this summer, Peter and Hans first removed the original fibreglass mount which had deteriorated and caused the flagpole to lean. Peter then applied two coats of epoxy to the flagpole surface followed by two coats of epoxy paint. He installed a new pulley at the base of the flagpole and Hans fabricated a new swiveling pulley for the top. They inserted the flagpole into an aluminum sleeve which they then fitted into a new permanent metal base. Hans installed the new base on Sunday July 25, after overseeing its final design, welding, sandblasting and painting. At the end of each season the flagpole will be removed and stored in the pavilion for the winter.
