Parkshore Marina Rules and Regulations
1. Rental of slips – The Board of Directors will oversee, via their Manager, all leasing of slips, at the Marina. Each owner must provide a completed lease and evidence of insurance on the tenant’s boat, to the Marina Manager, to be kept current, in that owner’s slip file. The file needs to have a photocopy of the owner’s driver’s license, as well as the tenant’s, for security and identification purposes. This sheet should also identify any vehicles (make model & lic. #) owned which may be parked at the Marina.
The slip owner must also maintain a certificate of insurance, pertaining to their liability, in connection with owning and leasing the slip, even if they have no boat in it.
2. Parking – a) parking spaces are reserved for parking of operational vehicles and not for storage of any non-operational vehicles, trailers, etc. Parking spaces are limited to the number of any residents (liveaboards).
b) Any extra vehicles, approved for parking at the Marina, will be at the rate of $125/month. These extra vehicles will be placed in spaces designated by the Manger.
c) A key for any vehicle which is being parked for an extended period (i.e. the boat owner is on an extended cruise) shall be left with the Manger in case the vehicle needs to be moved in the event of an emergency (i.e. fire, etc.).
d) All cars should have a Marina parking permit properly displayed.
3. Common Areas – a) Drives, walks, piers, waterways, etc., are for transit and not for placement of any planters, furniture, bikes, dingys, etc. The Fire Dept. needs unobstructed access and so does your neighbor.
b) Hoses, lines, power cords, etc. may be placed in the walkway, temporarily, while working in the area, but must not be left unattended.
c) Boats are not to extend in to navigation waterways, as delineated in the survey maps (filed with King Co. 6-13-78, file # 7806290727) and included with the resale certificate package.
4. Maintenance of Slips, Storage Lockers and Limited Common Areas - Owners may not paint, modify or decorate their limited common areas without prior written approval from the Board.
5. Insurance – a) Nothing shall be done, or stored, which will increase the insurance risk to the Marina. Flammable liquids, explosives, etc., may not be stored on Marina property. If any such material is detected (i.e. the smell of gasoline coming from a storage locker) the Manager will cut the lock and remove the illegal item and notify the owner of that locker to replace the cut padlock. The offending owner may be subject to a fine, for such action.
b) Other safety/security concerns include, not allowing children to play on the docks, not leaving anything on any walkway (hoses, power cords, etc.) unsupervised & not using barbecues on the docks or finger piers and NO SWIMMING in the Marina!.
c) Always secure your boat with a four-way tie, using lines, with snubbers & fenders of sufficient size and quality to assure the safety of your vessel and the docks and piers. Check your lines, regularly as the Lake rises and falls seasonally and lines can become overly loose or tight and need periodic adjustment to avoid damage.
6. Signs, Dishes and Antennas – No sign shall be displayed to public (Assoc.) view on or from any slip, locker or limited common area, except as provided for in the By-laws or upon written authorization from the Board. No antennas or satellite dishes may be installed without same written consent and review of any safety or damage issues.
7. Animals – a) Dogs & cats are allowed to visit the Marina, with their family, if they are involved in cruising (and not left in vehicles). No animals, of any kind, will be allowed as live-aboard residents. Those dogs, currently living aboard, as of May 8, 2017 (and listed on the Manager’s current list) will be grandfathered.
b) Dogs must be kept on a leash and controlled as to barking and any aggressive behavior. Owners must pick up and bag “deposits” and put them in the trash container.
c) Cats must be kept aboard the boat and have a suitable potty box on board.
8. Offensive Activities – No noxious or offensive activities shall be allowed. This includes, but is not limited to;
a) Noise – no loud noises (music, tools, equipment, loud conversations, etc.) before 9 AM or after 10 PM.
b) Heavy Boat Maintenance – sanding, scraping, extensive painting (i.e. entire hull) engine overhaul.
c) Heavy Vehicle Maintenance – engine & transmission overhauls, body work and painting.
9. Common Areas – Nothing shall be constructed in or removed from any common area, except by express written permission of the Board, outlining the particulars involved.
10. Other Important Items –
a) Each boat will be connected to no more than one shore power outlet, on its slip pedestal and there shall be no tampering with or modification of any electrical system.
b) All oil, coolant, etc. must be properly disposed of off-site. The nearest disposal location, presently, is the Auto Zone Store just south of the Marina, on Rainier Avenue.
c) All boats must, be able to get underway and out to open water, to avoid a fire, or other emergency. They must be in compliance with all laws, including current licenses, navigational and safety equipment, required by all marine vessels. The Manager may request a demonstration of any boat to prove compliance and capability.
11. Special Assessments for Noncompliance – The Board, in 1982, established a schedule of assessments for violations. A few amounts have been revised over the years and remain as an attempt to encourage compliance – not as any revenue source. These are used sparingly and only as a last resort;
a) Modifying or adding unauthorized items to the Marina - $1000, plus any cost to remove or repair.
b) Derelict boats - $10/day until compliance is achieved.
c) Major work on boats or vehicles – 1 st offense -$50, 2nd offense - $100 3 rd offense - $500
d) Dock clutter - $10/day until compliance is achieved.
e) No boat or liability insurance - $10/day until compliance is achieved.
f) Unsafe (prohibited) materials stored on-site (locker, boat, in vehicle, etc.) $100 fine, plus $10/day, until compliance is achieved (Manager is authorized to take action to correct problem).
g) Allowing animals to roam the Marina; $50 1st offense, $100 2nd offense, $250 – 3 rd offense.
h) No lease or evidence of insurance on file at office $25/month until compliant. Any special assessment issued gives the Member the opportunity to meet with the Board, at their next regular meeting, to plead their case and demonstrate compliance
97.08 If your boat sinks, the following steps will be taken by the manager:
Notify the appropriate authoritiesNotify the vessel owner (where appropriate)Notify the slip owner if different from the vessel ownerTake Emergency MeasuresNotify the Board of Directors The owner of a sunken vessel has the first option to arrange said vessel. If action is not agreed to between the owner and the manager within twenty-four hours (24hrs.), the manager may contract a professional salvage company to have the vessel raised.
Rules at Parkshore Marina aren't designed to be restrictive or designed to make life difficult. The owners and management of Parkshore sincerely wish you an enjoyable stay at our marina. In general, the rules are based on common sense expectation. Some rules are based on requirements set out in the by-laws. Either way, knowledge of the rules works to your advantage. Don't hesitate to ask the manager to clarify anything you don't think you understand.
97.06 You are required to have a completed lease on file in the office. Your lease specifies the boat that is authorized to be in the slip you have rented, and your signature verifies that you agree to provide the slip owner, and the manager with proof of insurance. There is a companion document, the Parkshore Marina Census form that accompanies the lease that must be on file. The more information that you provide on this form, the more likely we can reach in an emergency.
99.02 Finger piers must be kept free from clutter. Nothing shall be stored upon or attached to the piers without Board approval. It shall also be the responsibility of the slip Owner (the tenant, if the slip is leased) to keep finger piers safe from dangerous accumulations of moss or snow. Information on moss control is available at the office.
98.04 No marine head or marine holding systems can be pumped over in the marina. All live-a-board vessels over 26' should be equipped with 20-gallon minimum holding tank. Vessels not equipped with marine heads, and holding tanks will not be approved for live-a-board use.
97.07 No renter whose rent payment is delinquent will qualify for a lease approval by the Board of Directors to move to another slip.
99.01 Any damage to Parkshore property, damage to boats at Parkshore or damage to any personal property at Parkshore, must be reported to the manager and the owner of the property involved, in no less than 24 hours. Collisions that involve a boat and any part of the marina or a collision involving one boat with another boat, regardless of the extent of the damage (or the lack of damage) must be reported as soon as possible. Accidents or collisions where there are injuries, or property damage in excess of $500.00, by law, must be reported to the Harbor Patrol, Immediately!
97.05 Do not store anything in a locker other than the locker you have been assigned. If you pirate a locker, you will most likely loose everything that you placed there. There are no rights, no protection for the unauthorized use of a storage locker.
