10.   Fleet Support:  Motion made to extend the Fleet Support for $10 for one year, with those fleets that choose not to accept OK, requires a discussion and a motion for renewal every year.  Motion passed 6:0.  Stu to distribute copies of the 2006 "Additional Notes" for information to current newer officers.  Stu noted that alternate methods of reducing surplus revenue includes extending membership durations.
