Notice to Slipholders: Space Heater Update

Tracy Schwarzschild on

Club News

We have received some constructive feedback to the newly circulated lease provision banning the use of space heaters at the yacht club docks.  In light of that feedback, we have done some additional review and believe that the new lease restriction and related rules should be relaxed to address the concerns expressed by a number of slip holders.

Safety is our concern, but we recognize that each slip holder is ultimately responsible for the selection and proper use of equipment on board boats docked at the Club’s facilities. Accordingly, the Board has approved the adoption of a new Club Rule that will have the effect of nullifying the lease restriction on the use of space heaters and similar devices ...

  • Demolition of the old east dock is complete & the new floating dock is being assembled.  Feel free to stop by the Club to see the progress but mind the muddy grounds and be careful to avoid the construction site, dock sections in slips, and the Dry Sail Lot staging area.

We have continued to offer a high level of service to our membership, which comes at increased costs. Your board is doing everything possible to manage our expenses in a prudent manner. Additionally, we are planning on several capital improvements including the new floating dock and facility maintenance work this year that requires significant cash outlays, and we are tightly adhering to our planned budget for the spending.

Our biggest challenge is increasing revenues to keep pace with the ever increasing level of expenses. The biggest thing you the ...
