Dock Lines 12 - December 2014
“For a Better Marina”
Volume 13 Issue 12
From the Dockmaster:
Hello Folks. We again hope that
all of You had an enjoyable
Thanksgiving Holiday and wish
You all a Merry Christmas and
Happy New Year celebrations as
well. We always look forward to
having our Snowbird population
of friends back with us again!
Beautiful fall weather is here
after a nice mild summer, so like
last year, we may just have a
perfect year with a great winter
as well. Thank You all for your
flexibility in accommodating the
important annual Boat Show and
its change of access arrangements.
The welcome back party in November was a lot of fun,
even with the frigid temps and gusty winds which
drove us inside the store. How about another party?
The next one will be on December 17th, but we will try
having it earlier at 4pm in front of the store. Pot luck,
burgers and dogs, BYOB and we’ll have another nice
time together. If anyone wants to play an instrument
for some background music, please let us know.
Thank You all for choosing
Keep an eye out for the cold
fronts as their winds can
occasionally be pretty rough.
Keep the lines doubled if
staying in the slip for a while.
Bicycle thefts are less frequent, but continue to
occur. Thank You for properly securing your bikes and
keeping an eye on them. Please help by reporting any
suspicious activity to FMPD directly at 321-7700, or
contact the office at 321-7080. The EMERGENCY
number is still 911. You are also asked to call Your
Dockmaster Leif at 707-5316 so that Your concerns
can be known and dealt with.
All bicycles should be secured by appropriate chain or
braided cable, 3/8” diameter or larger with a
hardened heavy duty lock and with the cable run
through the frame, both wheels and a bike-rack or
Your vessels hardware. A photograph of Your bike and
the serial number should be recorded and a copy kept
in the marina office. The serial number is located
under the pedal hub.
Good Neighbor Practices
Please clean out the dock carts after you have
finished using them and bring them back to the
marina office for the next Customer. Keep control
of Your pets and clean up after them. There is a dog
waste bag station to the south of Your Lee Street
parking lot. Please do not disturb other Customers by
smoking in the restrooms and laundry area, and help us
all out by disposing Your cigarette butts in the
receptacles around the marina office.
Thank You for respecting your marina and thinking of
