Ahoy 2021
Happy New Year, Mariners!! As we welcome in 2021 and say good riddance to 2020, may the wind be ever in our favor. I am so happy to say we have made it to a new year.  For me, remaining optimistic about what is happening around me is a big part of dealing with all the ups and downs we have recently experienced. Like Jimmy Buffet says, “It takes no more time to see the good side of life than it takes to see the bad”.  I wish all of you a Happy New Year - let’s make this one AWESOME!!
See you on the Docks!

Annual Port Inspection
Our annual port inspection will happen very soon. We ask that you start some New Year’s cleaning. Here are a few key things they will look for:
  • Please ensure that all fingers are cleared of any stored items.
  • Check to make sure all gas cans are secured to the vessel if they are topside.
  • And make sure there are no chemicals or hazardous materials stored in the dock box that could leak into the bay. 
  • Pump out any standing water in your vessels or dinghies.
  • Ensure that all potted plants have something to contain any water that seeps out of the pot. San Diego Bay is a no-discharge area, and the Port and the Marina take being good stewards to the Bay very seriously.
The inspection is semi-random and will happen between January and March. Thank you all for helping us to ensure we’re doing all we can to avoid any pollutants or runoff getting into the Bay. Feel free to stop by or give us a call if you have questions about the inspection and what they’ll be looking for.

Boat Life Hack
Have a scratched windshield, clear-vinyl curtains or sunglasses?  Try a fine polish like 3M Finesse - It works well.  So do kitchen countertop polishes.
