Dinghies are a great way to putz around the marina, Lake Mac, and to take to the beach. Please follow these few guidelines when keeping your dinghy at the Marina.
Please keep your Dinghy within your own slip. If there is not room in your slip for both your boat and also your Dinghy, then you do not have room for a dinghy and you will need to make other arrangements. Stop in and Talk with Angela or Wade.
A few common problems with dinghies: First, please don't tie up the dinghy off the stern of the boat so that it hangs out the back of the slip. These dinghies impair other boaters when docking and they may get damaged. Second, if a dinghy is tied up between two boats make sure the Dinghy is not repeatedly bumping your neighbors boat. And third, if your dingy is tied up next to your boat, make sure it is not positioned underneath an air conditioning or bilge pump's through-hull fitting so that water is not being poured into your dinghy from the boat.
Dinghy and Inflatable Storage that is located on the pavement adjacent to the playground is specifically reserved for mooring customers. Other arrangements can be made to store your dinghy. All dinghies should be labeled with slip or mooring number and customer name.
A Dingy Ramp is located between the playground and the pool for launching these yachts. Be careful as the ramp can be slippery. The small beach located next to the Piper restaurant also works well for launching your dinghy or kayak.
Don’t be a Dinghy…
There are plenty of bike paths and scenic roads for great bike rides. Just go explore on your own, or ask around and we'll point you in the right direction.
Bikes should be locked and stored inside
the parking garage, on your boat, or in a bike rack. Please do not leave
your bikes on any of the long main docks (A-Z), as there is not enough
space for traffic and dock-carts to pass by, and people to stand and mingle.
If you wish to keep your bike on your short finger dock, please make sure
this is acceptable to the other boat that shares your dock.
