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 Please be reminded that during the hauling season it is important to park in an area that will not deter our ability to haul. Please park on the hardtop if possible. If you think it may be an issue then please leave your keys on the front seat of the vehicle.

1.If you have a trailer in the yard with no name on it, its a hundred dollar fine.
2.Please take note: if I need to move your trailer, it needs to be in working order.(Check for frozen tongue jacks and wheel bearings. It’s a burden, and time waster.)
3.If you are storing in the yard you need to put your paper work in 7 days prior to haul out. You must call me 1 or 2 days prior to pull out. Dates change due to weather and tides. Call Doug Balakier between 9am and 4pm at (203) 260-0715.
4.Upon storing you need to keep under your boat clean, no extra blocks, all zincs, tarps, etc. Or there will be a $25 fine. Members lets keep the yard clean.
5.We need someone to plow the lot. For work hours for 2013, we are looking for someone to help out with the Lot and Walkways.
6.All boats must vacate the yard by June 1st, or will be charged for summer storage of $1 per foot, per month the first year. $10 per foot, per month the second year, and $20 per foot, per month the third year. The end of the first year is June 1, 2013. If no attempt is made to repair any boat left on shore for 3 years, then the yard committee has the right to have the owner remove such boat or boats then rule #19 of the yard rules will take precedence.
