Marina Status - Opening?

I would like to know what everyone is hearing from their marina. Are they open, or opening, or delayed, or not opening? Give the location, and if you want, give the name. I just put a deposit on another marina that I am unfamiliar with and I am now wondering if they will open. My old Marin, Rondout Yacht Basin just sent the following e-mail to owners;

"We’re taking it pretty seriously and doing what the state is recommending. We are going to continue to monitor the situation and we’re hoping to start putting boats in slowly by May 1st and have limited access to all the facilities. We’re honestly hoping for the 15th but more optimistic for the 1st."


Location is Hudson River, New York

Re: Marina Status - Opening?

You are probably asking about seasonal marinas like up in Northern areas. Year-round ones further South appear to be guided by individual state mandates. In Florida, some are closed completely with residents fending for themselves wrt pumpouts, etc, some are closed to new boats coming in but still providing basic services to existing boats, some are open completely like normal. This has been a situation in flux, though. Marinas in Georgia have been likewise.

The Waterway Guide website has been collating marina virus operation information for many of the marinas along the ICW.

Re: Marina Status - Opening?

Waterway Guide Covid-19 marina status database:

https://www.waterwayguide.com/covid-19-reports

Up our way the Ontario government has closed all "non-essential" businesses and services. This appears to include recreational marinas, although I'm seeing conflicting reports from various places.

I'm still trying to get formal confirmation about the status of marinas in Newfoundland (where my boat is located). Since that province has a tighter lock down than Ontario, I assume recreational marinas are also closed. But I'd love to have formal confirmation ... anyone?

Re: Marina Status - Opening?

I have received Corona emails from all manner of companies whose email list I am on telling me their policy in this time. Most I don't read because it has no relevance to me.

I have not received one corona email from any of the marine business I have done business in the past with face to face contact which include:

Seymours Boatyard, Northport
Volpe Marine Mooring Service
Schooner Cove, Stamford
West Marine, Stamford
Old Lyme Marine

Marinas are not open technically here for outsiders though some of them are putting boats in. Too many incidents of boat owners mixing with marina employees. Plus there is a ban on recreational boating in Maryland.

It’s a STAY AT HOME Except for essential personal and essential tasks mandate . Working on your boat doesn’t fall under that so things are at a standstill until the Governors order is lifted.

Re: Marina Status - Opening?

From my marina this morning:

"We wanted to give you an update regarding our COVID-19 safety precautions and procedures. As of Saturday, April 4,2020 If you have a launch date within 30 days you may enter the yard to access your boat when employees are not on-site, which will be only on Saturdays and Sundays at this time. Please be aware that also during this time our offices and work spaces will remain closed. Our north heads will remain open for customer use with the standard door code.

Safety is our #1 concern, that being said we will be enforcing a strict policy where staff will not work on any boat that a customer was in contact with for one week. Please plan accordingly if you will be launching.

We will continue to actively assess the situation and provide weekly updates on our marina policies that comply with local, state and federal orders and take all necessary actions in the best interest of the health and safety of our employees. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Re: Marina Status - Opening?

IGY is. Got emailed the haul and first months bill yesterday. Don’t know about safe harbors. Haven’t been in barrington for 2 years now. Was surprised to get an email from them.

Re: Marina Status - Opening?

Virginia marinas are open for business at the discretion of the owners. Recreational boating is permitted in Virginia but not Maryland. Stay at home orders in Virginia appear to be mostly a strong suggestion from the governor.
