A campaign was started among the Membership to cover over two boat wells with flooring for $120.00 and so provide the Club with a lounge. Grant Mounteer, Architect-Member, drew the plans. Joists were fitted over two wells. Tarpaper and sawdust were used for insulation between joists and finally the floor was down. Doors became windows and windows doors. Still the new lounge lacked something. Rocks were gathered, stone by stone. A mason was approached and induced to lay up a fireplace in exchange for a year’s Membership and so the Club pushed back the chill of Winter. A series of posts supporting the roof broke up the floor space so Mounteer and Temperle put their heads together and over a Saturday and Sunday new roof girders were built and the four offending posts were removed. Now the Club had a dance floor.
General Meetings were a signal for someone to purloin chairs from the nearest funeral parlor. Now, with a lounge, a Club Member visited a hotel furniture auction and the Club blossomed with davenports. Rented chairs were finally purchased and the first of the rocking chair admirals gathered.
