TRANSITION PLAN TO CHANGE CQYC ANNUAL MEETING TO MAY
AND THE FISCAL YEAR TO JULY1 THRU JUNE 30
As part of the Transition Plan adopted by the CQYC Membership to change the CQYC Annual meeting to May, the Board has prepared a short year Budget based upon the 2013 fiscal status quo specified in the Transition Plan. The Marina will operate a short fiscal year from January 1, 2014 through June 30, 2014 based upon extending the 2013 budget at the actual 2013 rates for the period of January thru June 2014. The fiscal year will thereafter run from July 1st to June 30th of each year with the Budget being approved in advance at the May annual meeting. The short year budget can be accessed by clicking here.
NEW ACCESS CODES IN EFFECT. New access codes for the main vehicle gates, the pedestrian gates, and the restroom doors have been implemented. The old codes will no longer work. Owners can access the new codes in the "Documents" section of this web site. Owners should advise their renters of the new codes.
THE 2013 BOATING SEASON IS IN FULL SWING. To help make this season a safe and enjoyable time for all, your Board encourages you to review the marina’s Rules of Conduct. A few key points to note are as follows:
1. All boats must leave the marina under their own power at least once every 90 days during the April through October boating season;
2. Shrink wrap should be removed from your vessel no later than the end of May, unless otherwise approved by the Board;
3. You are required to keep your pet on a leash while on marina property if it is not on your vessel;
4. Help keep the docks safe by keeping power cords, hoses, mooring lines, etc. neatly positioned and clear of all walkways at all times.
Please pass the above info on to your renter, if applicable. We hope you have a great boating season!
2013 ANNUAL MEETING/BUDGET. Final voting results, quarterly maintenance fees by slip for 2013, and well replacement first quarter 2013 only maintenance fees are now available to owners in the "Documents" section of this web site. Additionally, the 2013 Budget by line item can be accessed by owners in the "Documents" section of this web site. And, don't forget that owners can also access Board meeting minutes and various financial analysis here.
SAFETY & SECURITY. Our camera security system has now been operating for over two years. We further enhanced the system in early 2013 by adding five cameras to the system. Security cameras now monitor activity in all locations of the marina continuously. Please remember to report any suspicious activity to the Harbormaster.
Additionally, the Board has developed a Safety and Security set of guidelines to assist you with making your time on the water (both inside and outside of the marina) a positive and pleasurable experience. Please review the document by clicking here.
THE CAPTAIN'S QUARTERS MERCHANDISE RANGE IS AVAILABLE FOR SUMMER! Go to the Merchandise page of this site to view the entire range and to order your selections. Show your pride with being a member of the marina by ordering and wearing branded items.
WIRELESS SYSTEM. In our continual effort to improve our wireless system, we made several changes to the system in 2011. First, we expanded the number of networks from one to three. In general, E-Ramp residents should connect to the "CQ-E-RAMP" network. All other docks should connect to the "CQ-B-RAMP" or the "CQ-A-RAMP" network. However, you may want to experiment with connecting to all three networks to determine which one works best in your location. A password is no longer needed to connect to a network. After you connect to a network, when you launch your web browser, you will be prompted for a username and password. See the "Documents" section of this web site to get the username and password.
ACCESS GATES. Owners can find the gates access codes (main, pedestrian, and restrooms ) in the "Documents" section of this web site.
REMOTE GATE OPENERS AVAILABLE. If you have been struggling with your current gate opener, it is probably because technology changes have rendered it ineffective. New openers that are current technology do a great job and are available at cost to owners. See Steve at the Harbormaster office to get one.
PLEASE RESTRAIN YOUR DOG. We have received several complaints recently about unrestrained dogs in the marina. Point 20 of the Marina Rules Of Conduct states "No pet shall be allowed to be without restraint (leash) when not confined aboard a watercraft." For the safety and comfort of all, please ensure that your dog is on a leash when not on your vessel.
UPDATE YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION ON THE WEB NOW. Please remember to keep your profile information on the web site current. This information is key to the marina management personnel in case there is an emergency with your vessel.
IS YOUR INSURANCE INFORMATION ON FILE UP TO DATE? If not, please send us new insurance information on your vessel. And remember, if your insurance expires we require a new certificate reflecting your renewal. Violators will be assessed a $20.00 administrative fee for each month that a valid certificate is not on file .
RULES HELP US ALL ENJOY THE BOATING EXPERIENCE BETTER. Now is a good time to refresh yourself and/or your renters with the Marina Rules of Conduct (Click here or go to the "Documents" section of this site). One rule to note is that all vessels moored in the marina are required to exit the marina under their own power at least once every 90 days during the summer months (April-October). Additionally, as you know grilling on the docks is prohibited and now our insurance company has asked that we advise that the use of portable grills on boats in berth is a hazard and should be avoided.
NOTICE A MAINTENANCE NEED? If you notice any maintenance needs for the docks, ramps, pedestals, and grounds, please report them to Harbormaster Steve Draper on the Maintenance Request Form (Click here or go to the "Documents" Section of this site).
MEMBERS NOT IN GOOD STANDING. In accordance with the Bylaws of the Yacht Club, the following members are not in "Good Standing" with maintenance and electric fees in arrears by 90 days or more: Currently there are no owners in arrears by 90 days or more.
