The purpose of the Washington Outboard Club is to promote water safety and good sportsmanship; to defend all boat owners against discriminatory legislation and burdensome taxation; to prevent the pollution of neighboring recreational waters; to stimulate a greater interest in boating among all citizens in the areas served by the Club; to create and develop good fellowship among local outdoor enthusiasts; to provide a medium of boating information exchange; to develop and own or lease property for the Club; and to do all other things that will tend to serve the needs of boat owners, fishermen, water skiers, and all water sport enthusiasts.

Commodore Gene has negotiated the use of the parking lot across the street at the funeral parlor during meetings. The parking lot is now available for club use during meetings.
Gene has seen to it that a new (very expensive) bulb has been installed on the light pole by the ramp. A new LED light which will be mounted lower on the pole will be installed soon. This will help illuminate the area.
At this time, the waiting period for membership is about 5 years.
