Covid 19 info

To Owners, Renters and Winter Storage Comrades!! Hope this letter finds you all safe and healthy!

The SOR Board of Directors at its April 27, 2020 meeting have made the following changes for the upcoming 2020 year in trying to combat the spread of Covid 19 and the worldwide pandemic, that changes each and every day!

1. We‚ are limiting the use of the club house to the 1st floor, with a Limit of 5 people in restrooms at a time, Masks must be worn and maintain 6ft apart.

2. The pool will remain closed for the Season and picnic areas will only be opened when State guidelines allow us to.

3. This year ONLY, winter storage vessels can remain on shore for the season with no charge because of the virus. This option is offered by the Board of Directors because of health concerns related to the Corona virus. This virus may be here into the summer and fall.
If you accept this option for summer storage because of the virus only, as a courtesy please inform the management team of your decision as soon as possible. Your vessel will be moved to a section of the yard away from summer parking and it will remain there until launch in the spring of 2021. Any requests to launch your boat that is in summer storage after June 26, 2020 will incur a charge of $300.
The Board of Directors has extended the final launch date for all other vessels to no later than June 26, 2020.

4. The Annual meeting scheduled for June 19th has been tentatively rescheduled for July 24th. Notices will be sent out to verify.

We would like to thank the Management Team for their flexibility and effort to keep us all healthy in these uncertain times.
Please stay healthy and if you have any questions please send them to the Board of Directors.
Please be considerate of others, practice social distancing and wear masks at all times.
Thank You for your cooperation.
Take Care!

Boat Maintenance

As of January 1, 2008 Connecticut state law requires all sanding activities on boat hulls to use a dustless sander. No scraping of bottom paint without a collection tarp is allowed on the premises. No power washing of bottom paint is allowed here or any marina in the area. No power washing is allowable for boats with bottom paint being pulled from the boat ramp also. All painting must have drop clothes in place to prevent contamination of ground soil. This is a strictly enforced policy and loss of your winter storage and or fines may result if ignored. Not only is this practice good for the environment but it also protects your fellow boaters property. If ignored you will also be responsible to clean or repair any damage done by the dust to neighboring boats. See pics below for examples. Any questions pertaining to this matter should be directed to Dave or Todd.
Thank You,
SOR Management
Have a safe and enjoyable boating season.
