Section III Docks and Club Infrastructure

The Club has invested millions of dollars in dock upgrades, and it is the Club’s policy to strictly apply and enforce the

Club Policy, Rules and Regulations, and Membership Agreement to ensure their aesthetic and structural integrity. To tha

end, the Rules and Regulations require Harbor Master approval of any additions or alterations including, but not limited

to, dock edging, cleats, storage lockers, painting, etc.

 

A. Dock Modification:

    1. It is the Club’s policy to discourage structural modifications to the docks to protect their integrity and comply

        with USACOE restrictions.

    2. Aesthetic modifications (e.g., dock lighting, dock steps) will be more liberally allowed provided the aesthetic

        modification does not require structural modification (e.g., no need to drill or anchor to the docks). However,

        the USCOE restricts the installation of electrical items, including decorative lighting. Any aesthetic modification

        must meet USACOE requirements.

B. Storage Lockers/Dock boxes:

    1. Shall be safely secured. Securing with C-clamps to the dock corner is the preferred method, as it does not

        require drilling or screwing into the dock.

    2. Shall be similar in design, material, and color. White is the preferred color.

    3. Shall be made of “marine grade” rust and corrosion proof material.

    4. Must fit within the 4-foot footprint of the dock corners without impinging upon the USACOE-mandated 3-foot

        clear walkway requirement.

    5. Shall not contain flammable liquids or chemicals.

    6. In the interest of safety, the Harbor Master shall have access to inspect on an as needed basis.

    7. That are compromised or visibly discolored may, at the discretion of the Harbor Master, be removed from the

        docks to the back storage lot until repairs are made and reinstallation is approved by the Harbor Master.

C. Dock Corners: the sole option to expand the size of dock corners is the purchase of a larger corner from the dock

    manufacturer and installation by a professional installer. The USACOE has approved this modification.

    1. Modifications performed without Harbor Master approval may be subject to any action deemed appropriate by

        the Board of Governors to enforce Club Policy, the Rules and Regulations, the Membership Agreement, and

        USACOE requirements.

D. Dock and Infrastructure Care:

    1. Members shall exercise all due care to prevent damage to the docks and shall immediately report any damage to

        dock structural components, electrical/plumbing systems, decking, or edging to the Harbor Master.

     2. Members shall be liable for damage to docks, electrical pedestals (located on the docks and/or in the

        campground), and any damage to other club infrastructure caused by the member and/or member’s boat,

        member’s family and/or guests, guest’s boat, camper, vehicle, etc. The Club has the right to seek restitution for

        repairs and/or pursue a claim on member’s insurance policy.

 

Section IV Slip Assignment

A. Equity Slip Holders

    1. All holder(s) of Equity Slip Rights must maintain Equity Slip Rights membership in the Club unless same is

        assigned to the Club.

    2. Holder(s) of Equity Slip Rights may assign such slip rights to the Club for a one-year period provided the

assignment is made in writing prior to February 1 of that season. While the holder(s) will not be responsible for

dues for that year, in recognition of the fact that assignment does not guarantee that the slip fees will be

assumed by another member, and also in recognition of the fact that these assigned slips are less desirable to

Leased Slip Rights Members, the holder(s) may be assessed a fee by the Board of Governors to cover

maintenance of that slip, the holder(s) share of property tax, Army Corps dues, building and grounds

maintenance, insurance, and other fees shared by the membership. While the Club will make the slip available to

any Leased Slip Rights members for the year, use of the slip by such members does not release the holder(s)

from their obligation to pay the assessment as described. The holder(s) on an assigned slip will retain Equity

Slip Rights for subsequent years. As with dues, these fees will be due by no later than February 1.

    3. The Club shall have first option to purchase Equity Slip Rights. If the holder(s) have a firm offer from a third

party, the Board of Governors will have 10 days to match said offer. Absent a third-party offer, the Board of

Governors may make a fair market price offer and specify terms. The holder(s) shall have 10 days to accept or

reject the offer.

    4. In the event a holder(s) of Equity Slip Rights becomes delinquent in dues and fees, the Board of Governors may

offer to purchase with terms the slip rights at a fair market price, less delinquent amounts. The holder(s) shall

have 10 days to accept or reject the offer.

    5. In the event a holder(s) of Equity Slip Rights becomes two years delinquent, the Board of Governors has the

subsequent right to claim the slip rights paying the holder any difference between the fair market value and the

delinquent amounts due to the Club. If at any time delinquent amounts equal or exceed the fair market value, the

slip rights become the property of the Club.

    6. Fair market values of Equity Slip Rights shall be reviewed annually by the Board of Governors taking into

consideration slip length, width, and water depth. A listing of fair market values shall be kept by the Treasurer

and made available to members upon request.

    7. The Board of Governors shall be notified in writing of any change in ownership of Equity Slip Rights. The

notification of transfer shall include the slip location, the current owner, the new owner with mailing address,

and selling price. The Treasurer will forward to the new owner all appropriate documents and applications for

membership to the Club.

B. Slip Assignment Guidelines

    1. A slip owner has the only right to his/her slip unless he/she notifies the Club that he/she wants to assign that

slip and has paid the assignment fee.

    2. Whenever possible, members are reassigned to the same slips assigned to them the previous season. A member

loses any claims to assignment priority if fees are not paid by March 30 each year. Equal claims of assignment

priority will be resolved on a first pay/first choice basis.

    3. Slips are assigned based on matching boat length with slip size and on a first-come first-serve basis, as

determined by the Dock Master.

    4. The Dock Master has the responsibility to reassign slips at any time if deemed necessary to accommodate Club

membership.

    5. The Dock Master will maintain the slip waiting list. When all slips are full, a waiting list will be established.

C. Dry Sail Storage Assignment
