SLIP AND DRY-SAIL AREA ASSIGNMENT MEETING

  1. All slip and dry-sail space holders who were assigned a slip or dry-sail space at the December Slip and Dry-Sail Area Assignment meeting will be entitled to a slip or dry-sail space for their boat.
  1. All transfers and new assignments will be processed according to Slip and Dry-Sail Area Waiting List seniority.
  1. Transfers and assignments will be made in the following order:

  • Open slips and dry-sail spaces will be filled according to seniority on the Slip and Dry-Sail Area waiting list.

Such assignments shall be temporary for one year. The Dock and Yard Committee has the discretion to not use this method if a slip becomes open after May 1st and it would be impractical to contact those at the slip meeting due to time constraints.

USE OF HOIST SIDE DRDY-SAIL AREA

(See also “Dock & Yard Rules” and the section titled “Storage of Boats & Items on Club Property”)

HOIST POLICY

  1. The hoist will be inspected annually, on or before June 1st.
  1. The hoist may only be used by trained members.
  1. The hoist will not be operational when high water impedes access.
  1. Training will be offered by a Club approved instructor, annually on launch day, or at such other times as may be appropriate, including when a new member joins and intends to use the hoist. See the Club office or a Dock and Yard Committee member for more information on training.
  1. Club employees are not allowed to use the hoist unless they are also members (i.e. Club employees may not use the hoist to launch member boats).

USE OF RAMP SIDE DRY-SAIL AREA

(See also “Dock & Yard Rules” and the section titled “Storage of Boats & Items on Club Property”)

  1. Your dry-sail space on the ramp side is not defined by an entire marked parking space, but rather, just the area the boat and trailer need. This allows accommodation of more boats than just the number of marked parking spaces and maximizes the number of members requesting space in the Dry-Sail Area. Please occupy only the width of space required by your boat/trailer as prescribed by the Dock and Yard Committee.
  1. Your dry-sail space agreement also does not assign a specific space to your boat. In general, the Club typically waits to see how many and what type of boats need space each summer and then the Dock and Yard Committee works to arrange and optimize how each year’s boats fit in the limited space. Storage patterns are typically set around July 4th. Members that have reserved dry-sail space will receive an email containing a map showing where each boat should be parked for the season. Lessees are asked to continue parking their boat in accordance with that particular season’s arrangement.
  1. While it is not a hard and fast rule, the we generally try to keep boats on trailers along the Octagon building and boats on dollies along the beach. This minimizes the impact on cars driving through the parking lot and optimizes the space people need to maneuver into the launch ramp.
  1. Just like the larger boats in the marina, please remember to tie off any halyards or other lines while storing your boat in the Dry Sail Area that can make noise in the wind.
  1. If a member is only bringing a boat or using the launch ramp for the day, please be courteous to your fellow members and make every effort to park cars and trailers within the lines in the parking lot. Sometimes the best spot may actually be along the street where it may be easier for you to navigate if the parking lot is very full of cars. (see also Rule #5 under “Storage of Boats and Items on Club Property”).

TRANSIENT DOCKING

(See also “Dock & Yard Rules” and the section titled “Storage of Boats & Items on Club Property”)

  1. Transient docking fees shall be set at the beginning of each year. Non-members visiting under reciprocity, or as a guest of a member in good standing, must sign in at the Club bar or office and pay for dockage upon arrival. Any boat tied to the dock for more than four hours shall pay docking fees (see “Dock & Yard Fees: Temporary and Overnight Docking”). Any boat tied to a dock after 11:00 pm shall pay docking fees. Members who fail to register are subject to a $25 fine and will be assessed a $1.50/ft. rental rate for their stay.
  1. Unattended boats will not be allowed to be tied to the dock for more than four (4) hours. Violators of this rule will be subject to the prescribed monetary fine as described in “Dock & Yard Fees: Temporary and Overnight Docking”.
  1. Members tied up at any of the docks at the Club on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays may not have dinghies or inflatables in tow, since they occupy valuable dock space. Dinghies or inflatables are permitted only in rented slips provided that they don’t obstruct the fairway.
  1. Dock space cannot be reserved. Leaving fenders, dock lines, etc. to indicate possession is not permitted.
