Avalon and its boating visitors need, and benefit from, an "on- the-water" marine repair service. The city and the boaters have been fortunate to have a competent and continuous service from a single family for ovei 50 years! The City Council has just "thrown out the baby with the bathwater"! It's an incredible result, and a serious disappoint- ment to anyone operating a boat into Avalon. Thompson Fetter San Diego, CA result, they have put Mr. Sherrill and his employees out of business. Also, by doing this, it forces the Vessel Assist boats to find a new home. Several times we stopped by the barge for boat parts and have been greatly pleased to be able to purchase them there. The boaters who come to Catalina sup- port the local businesses and con- tribute to the economy. What are we supposed to do now ff we have problem? Before the City Council made their decision, they should have had a "Plan B" to replace the valuable service Mr. Sherrill pro- vided. I find it hard to believe that the Mayor and City Council could be so shortsighted. They have left us boaters high and dry. Wow, the Avalon City Council won theft battle and the unsightly Rita A.
