Here are some reminders about Winter Storage Rules. All boats that have been shrink wrapped must be identifiable with last name of owner clearly visible written in permanent marker on the bow of the boat. No extension cords should be left on the ground when the owner is not on the property and of course no one should be plugged in if not on the property. Also , please do not wrap or tie anything to your support stands. This can create a dangerous situation in heavy winds. As always, thank you for a great haul and looking forward to our Spring launch. Happy New Year from the Yard Committee.

Please return the dock transport carts to the storage area immediately after using one. Members are complaining that the carts are being left out on the docks and boaters are leaving them at their slips until they return from their trips. There are at least two issues with this, obviously if there are no carts in the storge area and a member needs to transport multiple items to their boat, they would need to search for something that should have been returned after use. The second issue is these carts have been known to roll, fall, or get knocked off the docks and simply disappear. We are asking members not to confront someone they believe is not following this simple rule, they should inform a B.O.G. member or a Flag officer.
Clean the fish cleaning station when you are through cleaning your fish, this is non-negotiable. Leaving it with fish scraps and blood, draws flies and assorted waterfront critters that are waiting for the next person that wants to clean fish.. The scraps and scales dry hard and the next person that wants to clean and preserve their catch is forced to clean up after the person that left the mess to insure their fish aren't contaminated. Please, if you see someone leaving a mess notify a Flag officer or a B.O.G. member we would appreciate you not confronting someone that is doing this.
