MARINA GENERAL INFORMATION

Dear SHYC Members,

Welcome to the 2020 Boating Season! The Marina looks great. Some important improvements have been made in preparation for this season.

• We have a new plumbing system on the docks that will dramatically reduce water leakage and ease take out/install process
• We are now up to code for several aspects of our electrical install that will reduce risk and Club liability
• We have a brand-new sailing shack that will serve our Club for many years

Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped pull this together. If you have any suggestions or questions, you may reach me at bobthemarinachair@gmail.com.

Key Events and Dates
Friday, May 15 Marina opens; slip assignments posted
Friday, August 14 & Saturday, August 15 Fishing Tournament (plus season long contest to be announced)
Thursday, October 15 Marina closes for the season
As the season (and distancing rules) evolve, we'll determine if a Marina Party can be held.

Important for Slip Holders
To accommodate as many boats as possible, your slip may have changed this year. Slip assignments have been posted in the Manager's office window as of May 15. Please review the list prior to docking your boat.

As was previously announced, we have eliminated member storage on the docks for kayaks and paddleboards and are replacing it with a new member benefit – the Club will provide kayaks and paddleboards for member use. Paddles will be available in the launch shack for sign out. Enjoy this new equipment!

Please check email and Club bulletin boards for latest guidance on the use of masks, gathering size, and distancing rules as the situation evolves. If you have questions – please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please review the Marine rules section of the Membership Book. All vendors working on members' boats in the marina are required to sign in at the Manager's office prior to working on any member's boat.

Our launch staff can be reached on Channel 09 or land line at 781-545-0372 (Ext. 4).

Sincerely,
Bob Parker
Marine Committee Chairman
