News from the Dockmaster
Welcome Mariners, to the February edition of the Chula Vista Marina newsletter. I hope everyone is off to a good start for 2022. In this issue we will discuss how to effectively and safety heat your vessel during these colder months. We have also been getting some rain, so it’s very important that you confirm your mooring lines are securely tied and that tenders are also secured and covered (if possible). Many times, covers will fill up with water and ultimately collapse, resulting in water getting into your vessel. In addition, ensure any property that could blow away is stowed properly. Following a storm, we recommend that boaters come down and physically check the condition of their vessels and tender. If you see a vessel that appears to be low in the water, please contact the Marina office so we can address the situation.
See you on the docks!

Friendly Reminder - Helpful Hints
Turning Up the Heat
February is a month to turn up the heat. For one, it is still winter and, although, here in San Diego we enjoy fair weather all throughout the year, the winter months can also get cold.  A few things to consider when heating up your boat:
Electric Heaters
This is a portable and convenient option for heating up cabin space in a boat. Portable heaters can pose a fire risk if left unattended, especially in boats where waves can suddenly tip the heater over.  An electric heater with an automatic shutoff feature when it gets tipped over would be ideal to use on a boat. An electric heater that is a newer model with an Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL) label means it had been tested for safety. 
Do take note that electric heaters can  seriously increase your electric bill,  especially if you install more than one, so careful consideration in choosing an electric heater and how many you will use is advised.
Tips for Electric Heaters
  • Use electric heaters with a UL label, meaning they have undergone product testing for safety.
  • Choose an electric heater that is low profile, cool to the touch and will not tip over easily.
  • Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from the heater.
  • Put the heater on a flat, hard surface away from areas of high traffic.
  • Do not plug an electric heater into an extension cord and do not plug other devices into the same outlet as the heater.
  • Do not use more than one electric heater on board at a time, or you could overload your system.
  • If you are hooked up to shore power, inspect your shore power cord for faults before using an electric heater.
  • Turn off the electric heater when leaving the cabin or the boat. DO NOT leave a running boat heater unattended.
CVM Parking Rules and Regulations
  • The Marina does require that vehicles be moved every 72 hours. If you are unable to do so and are looking for the option of long-term vehicle storage for $150 per month.
  • No large or oversized vehicles or RVs are permitted in the Marina lot.
  • All vehicles must display current registration to park in lot.
The parking regulations for the Marina are to ensure all tenants have somewhere to park when the visit the facility. If you have a guest who will keep a vehicle in the lot overnight, please stop by the Marina office, so we can issue a temporary parking pass or if you are interested in the long-term option.
