News from the Dockmaster
Hello Chula Vista Mariners! It sure is great to see the increase in activity on the docks and around the Marina complex. We have lots of new boaters coming in, and it’s starting to feel somewhat normal again, with the exception that we all still look like members of the old western James Gang wearing these masks all the time. Everyone is doing a great job following the social distancing guidelines that the County and Port have put in place. Thank you all for assisting us with following these ever-changing rules.
This past month, from what the divers have told me, they expect this year to be a warm one.  I have noticed a lot more people getting their boats out of the slip and onto the water.  There are a couple things to keep in mind through the summer months.  Keep an eye on the bottom growth on the vessel. This is the season when adding an extra dive or two for a couple months can be of a huge benefit. The warmer sunnier months will affect the gelcoat and other exterior surfaces of your boat - they can also be damaged.  There are a wide variety of protective waxes, finishes and coatings on the market that can help minimize sun damage. Sunbrella covers in the right place can also do a lot. One easy way to prevent sun damage is to occasionally switch the boat’s configuration in the slip. It may be possible to back your boat into the slip rather than bow first. Many boats get exposed to the sun on one side only in the slip, and after a few years this damage becomes noticeable. Contact the Marina office for some good names and numbers of boat detailers to keep your pride and joy looking good!
See you on the Docks!
