Required Insurance on boats on Slips and Moorings

posted May 5, 2016, 1:52 PM by AUGUSTA SAILINGCLUB   [ updated Dec 6, 2016, 11:48 AM ]

Members keeping a boat on one of our Slips or Moorings must have and demonstrate
 an  active Liability insurance policy covering their boat

 

This is one of the requirements in our lease. is that if you have a boat on a mooring ball or in a slip you MUST be insured and name the Augusta Sailing Club as an additional insured. We are currently  trying to get this information updated from everyone.. If you have not done this in 2016, please contact your insurance agent and have them send a declarations page showing the ASC as an additional insured via e-mail to insurance@augustasailingclub.org  or via regular mail to ASC, P.O. Box 1938, Evans, Georgia 30809. Sending it by e-mail would be our preference, but either method will work. Also, please ask your agent to be sure to set this up so when your policy renews a copy is automatically sent to ASC. 
If you are leasing your to a  member who is keeping a boat on your slip, you are responsibility to see that the lease-holder  presents his insurance declaration to the club.

Attenuator Project

Dale Demyan has been working on a project to install wave attenuators in the lake to protect our Slips from damaging wave action during storms from the north and east.  In the past we have had boat and dock damage caused by high wind and waves.  The Attenuators would be barriers anchored between the open lake and the slips to afford wave protection.

     The plan is to introduce the idea to the U S Army Corps of Engineers:s and get the concept introduced into the Lake Shoreline Management Plan, and that done to get a permit to install the attenuators.

Attached is a letter from then Commodore Ian Buckley to the U S Army Corps of Engineers: to start the process.

C Dock Cleats Replaced

posted Nov 3, 2015, 10:32 AM by AUGUSTA SAILINGCLUB   [ updated Dec 6, 2016, 11:48 AM ]

FDM has installed new cleats on rebuilt C Dock and tightened the corner cleats.  I think the new cleats should be acceptable by the members.  I have not come to an agreement as to them providing us with replacement dock lines.

E Dock Project Complete

posted Jul 31, 2015, 7:55 AM by AUGUSTA SAILINGCLUB   [ updated Dec 6, 2016, 11:48 AM ]

E dock is now in place.  You can start moving your boats back.  I plan on moving the Club boats over on Friday.  NOTE fingers on the right are 25' long and fingers on the left are 27' long.  This is a good time to upgrade your lines and add your membership =number  to the base of your mast.  The water and electric will be completed in the next couple of days.
 
Enjoy

Electrical Isolation and Ground Leakage Test of Docks

posted Jun 5, 2013, 7:34 AM by Unknown user   [ updated Dec 6, 2016, 11:48 AM by AUGUSTA SAILINGCLUB ]

Tests were conducted on the electrical isolation and ground leakage of the ASC dock
complex (A-F) on Feb 13-14 and May 9, 2013. All docks showed good isolation of ground from feed
and return lines. All slips with boats connected to shore power demonstrated good isolation from
environmental ground and integrity of the electrical feed and ground lines. DC and AC environmental
probe measurements in water in all slips and entries to dock showed no current leaks from dock to
water. Read the full report and see the test data on the attached files.

Thanks to Member Doug Morris for is efforts and expertise and thanks to the Dock Authority led by Harbormaster Bobby Joiner.
Please direct comments or questions to Mr. Morris.

Water below 315'

posted Nov 22, 2012, 10:27 AM by Unknown user   [ updated Dec 6, 2016, 11:48 AM by AUGUSTA SAILINGCLUB ]

We are now below 315' Some of the inner boats will have to move. You can either go onto a trailer, maybe, or to a mooring. Moorings that are open are 12,16,7,10,13,14,&20. When you move PLEASE let the Dock Authority know where you are. WE need to track where boats are.

If you choose to go to a mooring Ted Gimble (727-515-1599) will assist you with a club motor boat.
