III. Slip Waiting Lists, Rentals, and Renewal of Rentals
A. If a slip holder wishes to surrender his/her slip for one season, he/she may do so by checking the appropriate line on the “Slip Rental Agreement and Payment Notice” (I would like the Harbormaster to sublet my slip for the 200X season.), or if the “rental agreements” have not been mailed, by writing directly to the Harbormaster. If the member wants to return to his/her slip in the subsequent season, s/he can only do so by paying all fees (slip rental fee and any initiation fee or initiation fee balance) for the season s/he will be temporarily vacating the slip. The Harbormaster will then attempt to locate a sublet for the slip for the impending season. The slip holder understands that s/he is still liable for the slip rent (and the initiation fee or initiation fee balance) for the impending season unless and until the Harbormaster is able to lease the slip.
B. If the slip holder finds a member in good standing who agrees to sublet his/her slip, s/he may suggest that member to the Harbormaster. If no other member who has asked to sublet a slip is ahead of that person on the waiting list, the Harbormaster will assign that individual to the slip. The slip holder’s obligation for the impending season will thus be fulfilled by the person assigned by the Harbormaster to sublet the slip. The club will then refund to the slip holder who is taking a leave from his/her slip an amount of money consistent with the length of the sublease (entire season or a portion of the season) and the length of the boat that will occupy the slip (e.g.., if the slip is a 40' slip, but the sub lessee’s boat requires only a 25’ slip, the member who has been temporarily assigned to the slip will be charged an amount consistent with the present practice for the size slip his/her boat requires and, the slip holder’s refund will be reduced by the difference).
C. If the slip holder wishes to take another leave for the subsequent season, s/he will again be responsible for the slip rent (and the initiation fee or initiation fee balance) for that season unless and until the Harbormaster is able to lease the slip. The process for leave taking and retaining the “first right of refusal” will be the same as that detailed above.
Slip holder: A member in good standing who occupies a slip to which no one else has a claim and retains the right to annually renew this slip by paying all appropriate fees.
Sublet: A member in good standing who has been assigned, by the Harbormaster to a slip from which a slip holder has taken a temporary leave. A sublet is not a transfer from another slip or a transient boat who has been give temporary dock space by the Harbormaster (i.e. a visitor from another Yacht Club or a boat in need of repair).
