Only Use Approved Power Cords, Please

mel fabiszak2The Slips Committee has spent countless hours bringing our docks up to the standards set by our insurance company to keep our premiums as low as possible; and to provide a safe and hazard-free environment for our members and guests. Your slip license spells out certain rules and conditions that arise from our policy.

Our insurance agency recently made an unannounced visit to see if we were in compliance with our terms and conditions. The agent approached me while I was on the docks and pointed out a power pedestal connected to a member's boat by a non-UL-listed marine adapter and a non-marine and unlisted extension cord.

To say the least I was embarrassed, because I'm well aware that our policy specifies that shore-power cords must be UL-approved, yellow and rated at 30 amps at least. Nothing else is acceptable. I am still trying to get the egg off my face.

So this is a reminder that whenever we find an improper power cord connected to a vessel it will be unplugged and put on the boat. The club will not be held responsible for whatever inconvenience that may cause.

Being a club with a marina, we have code and insurance requirements to which the organization must adhere. I am told that the difference in premiums for us not to adhere to the terms of our insurance agreement can cost the club an additional $10,000 per year or more. This additional cost would necessarily be passed along to slip tenants in the form of increased slip rental fees.

We want to keep slip rates as low as possible. Please make sure your shore power cable adheres to the club standard to avoid any misunderstandings or inconveniences. This is the best yacht club on the Great Lakes; please help us keep it safe for all members and visitors.

Important Upcoming Dates

The committee will have its slip closing meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday Oct. 24.

The slips closing work party is Oct. 31, starting at 9 a.m. Water to the slips will be turned off.

Winterizing your slips prior will save you money.
