My wife and I received a letter from Shannon a few weeks ago stating, "...we have formed a Shannon Owners' Club and only members with a password will be able to use our service
program in the future...The one time cost of the Shannon Owners' Club is $500.00...and is fully tax deductible...Every penny raised from membership
fee will go directly into the Shannon River Marine
Heritage Foundation..." There is obviously much more
but I just pulled some of the more pertinent parts
. I don't know about anyone else, but my wife and I have called on Shannon boats before for information that we needed, and were given a personal tour of their now defunct business by Bill Ramos. We were also given plenty of literature about Shannon boats. They are still around but moving more into boat restoration
work instead of building new yachts. It is important to note that in the past Shannon, has helped owners of their boats in all corners of the globe any time they were asked.
While I'm weighing the idea of weather
or not to spend the $500.00 minimum, it seems more important than ever to have a real Shannon Owners Group of our own. This is by no means a slam on Shannon boats or Walter Schulz. I'm just putting this info out there for those who may not be on their mailing list.
According to the letter I received for details on joining the Shannon Owners' Club, go to their website and click on "Owners Club" or contact Bill Ramos at Shannon Boat.
