Storage Capabilities

Cradles or jack stands are required, though Jack stands are available at a rental cost $100.00 each for the season. Winter storage is available for non-members, either in water (bubbled marina system) or ashore. The rates are per per square foot, (length on deck x beam). Winter storage is from October 15th through May 15th.

Fuel is available, both diesel and gas, and other petroleum products that may be required. For your convenience we also have ice and drinks. The pump out facility is located at the fuel dock.
