REMINDERS FOR EACH UPCOMING BOATING SEASON. To help make each 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!
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.
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).
