Due to the unfortunate circumstances with the Covid 19 shutdown and the club being closed for the time being we have decided to post open slips by email and Facebook. These slips will also be posted on the board inside. However you do not have to get into club house to sign up for a slip. You can call me email me or sign up if the club house is open. These slips will be posted as per the rules for 1 week from Friday April 24 thru Thursday April 30th. Only slip holders that have not changed their slip in the past year are eligible to sigh up fro a slip change.
To put your name on a slip you can contact me instead of signing a sheet on the board.
Bruce Kraemer: 203-788-5441
The following slips are posted 4/24/2020 to 4/30/2020
If you have any correspondence for the Board, need gate cards or have a change to your contact information please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. New member applications will have the back ground checks done, but interviews will be hold for now. This will be the best way to communicate until the Club house is open again. (yes it will happen). Best therapy for these times- GET THE BOAT READY TO GO IN ! To maintain social distancing consider Saturday everyone work on the port side and Sunday the Starboard side.

FROM THE YARD/REGARDING 2019 HAUL. I hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe boating season and we all hope for those last few great fall days to take that last trip. In the meantime we are planning our 2019 haul and hopefully will be able to accommodate all of our members. The following are just some reminders of the yard procedure for hauling. ALL BOATS hauled must fill out a haul form. They are available at the bar. COMMUNICATION is the key to a successful haul for everyone. The Yardmaster or Committee member must be contacted before a boat is positioned in the yard. We do not store blocks or stands at the club and there is absolutely NO POWER WASHING of any kind in the yard. Contact number for Yardmaster is 203 676 3618. If you text please leave your name. Also, if your trailer was stored in the yard and you find an orange spray painted tag on the tongue of your trailer, please contact me ASAP to avoid any fines or penalties. As always, thanks for your cooperation regarding these issues. Bob Cole, Yardmaster
From the Yard Committee: Happy Halloween to all members, however this is not only Halloween but the official end of the boating season. Please prepare your paperwork and your boats for the end of season haul. Remember the weather will change quickly and the water in the yard will be turned off accordingly. We have many new members hauling this year and are expecting a large haul. We have limited space and this is a first come first served operation. As always last out is first in and if you are not prepared to launch in the spring you will be repositioned at your expense. Please be reminded there is no POWERWASHING allowed in the yard. Please plan accordingly. As always, thank you for your cooperation.
The Yard Committee From the yard. Please remember that this is a very busy season in the yard. We are hauling very large boats In some very tight areas using some very large equipment . Please be reminded to park your vehicles so they will not impact the haul. Please remind your guests of the situation as well and if you think there might be an issue please leave your keys on the floor of your vehicle so we may move it. The Yard Committee
IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON HAULING AND STORING YOUR BOAT IN THE YARD, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING RULES AND GUIDELINES. We have had an unusually large number of requests about storage this year and I wanted to get this out in order to answer many of the questions that are being asked about winter storage. Storage is basically on a first come first serve basis for SLIP HOLDERS. The Yardmaster or committee member will position all boats and trailers in the yard, not the hauler or boat owner. You must fill out a HAUL FORM prior to the haul and COMMUNICATE with the yardmaster or committee member. Failure to do so will result in a fine of 250.00$,per the yard rules. Yard rule 12 states that there is one boat and or one trailer per member for those of you with more than that number. If all of the slip holders requested storage we would not be able to accommodate everyone so I suggest the owners with the larger boats begin to consider hauling NOW. We need to haul larger boats first and the fill in with the trailer boats. Also remember that the water in the yard will be left on as long as the weather permits, as we all know that can change quickly here. So in closing the advantages of an early haul are an assured location in the yard, access to water, and better weather to wrap and winterize. Please treat the yard as if it were your own because it is. All boats should be free and clear of any debris stored under the boat. Thank you, The Yard Committee
