RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR BOAT DOCK USE

(Revised 02-22-13)

 

1)     All condominium owners and renters must request a boat slip reservation on the tamarindnews.com website, or by calling the Association office, and receive written approval from the Board and receive and display an identifying tag prior to occupying any boat slip.  Boat slip users must acknowledge reading and understanding of all ‘Rules and Regulations for Boat Dock Use’ prior to reserving and occupying a boat slip.

2)     Slips must be occupied within 72 hours of reservation date.  If notification is not received by the Board indicating that your arrival time will be delayed, the reservation will be cancelled and the slip will be available to others. If a reserved boat slip is vacant for 72 hours without prior notification to the Board, the reservation will be cancelled and the slip will be available to others.

3)     Boat slips are provided as an amenity for all owners and renters.  No other boats are allowed to moor in our slips. Prior to occupying a reserved boat slip, owners and renters must provide a copy of their boat registration (or a valid boat rental agreement) and proof of boat insurance to the Board.

4)     All owners or renters must be in residence to occupy a reserved boat slip.  Owners and renters are only allowed to reserve and occupy one boat slip at a time. The Association is not responsible for and does not provide insurance for marine related accidents or for damage or loss to any vessel.

5)     Guests of owners or renters are not allowed to moor their boats in boat slips overnight, but can temporarily occupy any unreserved slip as long as they comply with all ‘Rules and Regulations for Boat Dock Use’.

6)     Boats with an overall length of 23’ or less (end to end including raised motors and platforms), can only be reserved in slips 4 through 24. Refer to diagram ‘A’ attached.

7)     Boats with an overall length of 24’ to 30’ (end to end including raised motors and platforms) can only be reserved in slips 1, 2, 3, 25, and 26. Refer to ‘Diagram A’ attached.  Boats with an overall length of 31’ or longer are not allowed in any slip. 

8)     As per our land lease agreement, all boats, regardless of overall length, must be moored in such a way that their vessel does not exceed the land lease line. Refer to ‘Diagram B’ attached.

9)     The Board has the responsibility and authority to ensure that all boat slip regulations are enforced to preserve and protect common areas. Upon receiving notification, boat slip use violators will be given 24 hours to comply or face subsequent fines and/or removal of their vessel from the property at their expense. 

10)  The safety of each boat and the protection of the docks from damage is the responsibility of the boat owner. The cost to repair damage incurred to the docks by a moored boat is chargeable to the boat owner.  The boat owner is also chargeable for the removal of any boat deemed by the Board to be a safety hazard or have the potential to cause damage to the docks.

11)  The alteration of or attachment of any device to any dock is prohibited. Nothing is to be left on docks or dock railings.  All vessels (boats, canoes, kayaks, etc.) must be properly moored in the water.

12)  Per our land lease agreement, our docks are to be used exclusively to moor non-commercial recreational vessels. The use of a dock or boat slip for commercial ventures is strictly prohibited.  No signs of any kind can be attached to a boat while docked, example:  For Sale, Charter for Hire, etc.

13)  Per our land lease agreement, the use of a boat as a dwelling while docked is strictly prohibited. Liveaboard vessels are prohibited to moor in any boat slip.

14)  Per our land lease agreement, all boats that moor, dock, or otherwise use the facility must be maintained in a fully operational condition, capable of moving by self-propulsion.

15)  Nothing is to be dumped overboard while docked.  Examples include garbage, food containers, fuel or oil, sanitary waste, etc. Tamarind will aid in the prosecution of violators.

16)  It is the responsibility of the boat owner to know of and adhere to all Florida boating and marine life laws, rules, and regulations.
