After reviewing with our insurance carrier, lawyers, EPA, OSHA and Virginia Clean Marinas, we have finalized new boatyard rules here at Yankee Point. These are subject to changes, and we will notify you in the event of a change in policy.
DIY RULES HIGHLIGHTS
Firstly, we are moving to having all vessels sitting on ground cover, we have started in the center section and will be extending that to the outer ring as well, as boats are moved they will be placed on ground cover.
Secondly, as clients prepare their boat bottoms for painting, we are moving to a dust free environment. All sanders MUST have a vacuum attached and there can be NO dust blowing around the yard. Wet sanding is allowed, provided debris does not extend off the ground cover and into the boat yard. Regarding paint cans, they cannot be left on the ground around the boat (if you are leaving paint with us to touch up jack stands at launch, you need to give us your paint and we will store it). Cans being left for storage cannot have any paint covering the label, nor can they be decanted into another container – this is an OSHA requirement. Finally, the EPA is requiring proper disposal of paint cans, these need to be given to the yard staff for proper disposal and a charge per can will be applied to your account.
During our OSHA review, ladders and scaffolding were identified as a major liability issue and we have established new policies for using such. Please read items 18-20 in the DIY Rules; a copy of the required waiver is here:
2023 BOATYARD RATES
Finally, we have adjusted our policy for DIY yard space billing. Those coming into the yard to complete their own work will be charged the standard storage fee for the first 60 days, after which the rate will increase as posted in the yard rates. A link to our rates is below, and these will also be posted on the website.
Dry storage areas are all above MLW by 20’ - in the event of a storm surge, your stands will not wash out. Your boat will be as safe as it can be no matter what the weather. Serviced by a 40-ton Travelift and 30-ton hydraulic trailer, Yankee Point can accommodate up to 180 boats.
We can accommodate any type of paint job in our 65’ paint barn. Our primary paint of choice is AwlGrip by spray application but we can apply any paint by any approved method. .
Fiberglass & Gelcoat
If your boat has anything from ugly spider cracks to serious structural damage, Yankee Point Marina’s technicians can make it like new.
