Employment with Us




Parking Permits

Parking Permits are Required. For security and to insure enough parking spaces for our customers, we ask that you place a parking sticker in the lower left-hand corner of your windshield. Please obtain a parking sticker from the Ship’s store for your vehicles. Temporary permits are also available for your guests. We do not want to make any mistakes when we start towing unauthorized vehicles.

Parking Permit Window Stickers are $20 each and there is a limit of 3 per boatslip.

Replacement Stickers: If you buy a new car or have your window replaced, please bring in your old parking sticker and we will trade you for a new one.

Parking Notes and Rules

There is plenty of parking at our marina. However, on busy weekends, you will likely need to park a little further away than your preferred spot.

Indoor parking is generally available between Memorial Day and Labor Day in Storage Building #1 and #7. Building #1 is exclusivly for cars with parking stickers. These buildings are great places to leave your autos while cruising. If you plan on crusing past Labor Day, you will want to move your car out of the storage buildings because we will begin to move boats inside.

Waterfront Parking in front of A-Dock is Reserved for Boat Owners. If you have guests, please ask them to park in the gravel lot across the street.

Race Crew Parking: Your sailing crew should park across the street so that the waterfront spaces are available to boat owners.

The Gravel Parking lot at East End:

  • Only boaters/guests from A and Z docks are permitted to park in the gravel parking lot.
  • No trailers are permitted in the Gravel Parking lot from Memorial Weekend through Labor Day.

On Busy Weekends, guest passes will be directed to the Parking Garage (#7) on the South side of the Road.

Your Parking permit is for visiting the marina; your permit does not allow parking for the beach or for visiting cottages.
