A.Find out where the lifting points are and the approximate weight of the boat. Bring in all fenders, equipment and lines which might become tangled with the lifting straps; you may also wish to pull up protruding speed logs.
A.We welcome outside contractors to the yard. They must complete and sign our Contractors Agreement, show evidence of insurance, WorkSafe BC coverage, sign in and out to record their hours, and you will be charged a nominal contractors fee per man hour they are working in the yard.
A.You must keep your boat’s area clean. Tarps are placed under every boat to catch falling debris, paint scrapings, fibreglass or sanding residues. Please clean your site daily and dispose of any waste materials and fluids properly. Please ask for assistance regarding their disposal.
A.You may stay onboard your boat while in the yard – a nominal daily fee is charged. There is a washroom in the Laundromat in the yard, and showers in the marina for your use. No toilets, sinks or petroleum products may be discharged overboard in the yard.
A.The main gates to the yard are open from 0800 until 2000. If staying onboard your boat in the yard, you will be given a key to the man gate to get in and out of the yard after hours, plus a key to the marina showers and toilets located opposite Carlos O’Bryan’s pub.
A.One vehicle may be parked adjacent to your boat – parked vehicles must not interfere with Travelift operations. One additional parking pass may be obtained at the Boatyard Office for designated parking in the marina.
A.Pressure washing of your boat’s bottom can only be done by the yard staff in the washdown area serviced by our water treatment plant. We are an environmentally minded yard and comply with Environment Canada’s “Best Management Practices” for boatyards. If you want to pressure wash the deck and superstructure please ask for permission from the Boatyard Manager.
A. Media/sand/dry ice blasting is only allowed after approval from the Boatyard Manager. Spray painting, hull sanding, scraping or peeling are only permitted providing your boat is fully tented/tarped – we rent tarps for this purpose.
We look forward to welcoming you to our base and our wonderful cruising ground soon!
