Copper Harbor Marina Resumes Gasoline Sales After Removing Ethanol Blend

JensenNR - August 14, 2008

The Copper Harbor Marina, MI, has resumed sale of gasoline. The prompt resolution of the fuel problem is greatly appreciated by the boaters, who cruise the Keweenaw Peninsula. 

There were several instances of the engines stalling in boats, which had taken on gasoline at the marina. The fuel contained ethanol, which is known to cause serious problems for some gasoline-powered boats elsewhere in the nation. The marina’s tanks were pumped out and refilled with premium (non-ethanol) gasoline.

Monday was a busy day at the 2008 Rendezvous, with a seminar on nautical history, a port-captain's meeting, the annual dog show, and lots and lots of wind (for the third day in a row).

Evening dinner was "on  your own," but a large group assembled at Spider Bay for a bring-your-own barbecue and a salute to Rear-Commodore Bud Zalon, for his 80th birthday. 

The evening ended with a sing-along, featuring GLCC artists.
