I hope you are all enjoying the boating season.
Your slip committee is busy with summer projects to make your club safer for members and guests. The Committee is waiting for the next delivery of dock box brackets to finish all the slips on B dock. The next dock to be completed will most likely be A dock. After that we will move on to the slips on E and F docks. Over the next couple of years every slip will receive new dock box brackets. If you would like to have your dock box brackets installed before we get to your slip, please e–mail me. Dock box brackets are designed for fiberglass boxes, not steel, or wood. The standard box is 4’ – 6’ wide by 2’ deep. As a reminder this is the last year for dock boxes or any equipment to extend 12” on to the main walkway.
Boarding Ladders on finger piers are not allowed to be mounted in any way that causes your dock mates difficulty in walking down the pier to his boat. Think safety, for you and your dock mate.
At the end of the season, budget permitting, we would like to replace another section of the main walkway. The committee has not yet determined which section will be replaced.
Slip tenants, when you installed wave boards and boarding ladders did you make them easy to remove for winter? Remember they must be removed before the slips close for the season. If you fail to remove your items, and the slip committee is forced to remove them, you will be billed without notice and the items disposed of. If your boat is removed and your slip winterized early, have Pat Nora or myself check it. This way, if someone else puts your wave boards down or the club rents out your slip after it has been closed, you will not incur any additional charges.
I would like to thank all the club members for their patience and understanding while improvements are made to the docks to improve access and safety for all. I would also like to thank all the committee members that have been helping on small work parties taking care of small problems. Your efforts make my job easier.
