Boat owner express concerns about future fee hikes at marina

Boat owner express concerns about future fee hikes at marina
News from Buffalo News:

Erie Basin Marina boat owners are seeing their slip fees go up by an average of 36 percent for the coming year.

But that’s not what worries them. It’s what will happen in future years.

About 50 slip holders attended the Buffalo Common Council committee hearing Tuesday to express concerns about the city’s contract with Smith Boys to operate the marina.

The boat owners said they understand, generally, the 36 percent hike is necessary because fees haven’t increased in some 12 years. But they worry the city will allow Smith Boys to increase rates 30 percent next year, and another 30 percent the year after that.

Their concern, they said, is based on a business plan Smith Boys provided the city.

But Steven J. Stepniak, the city’s Public Works commissioner who is responsible for negotiating the marina contract, assured boat owners that the 2015 rates are the only ones that have been approved by the Council.

Under the fee structure, 2014 fees were, for example, $ 750 for a resident or $ 825 for a nonresident with a 20-foot boat in a 20-foot slip; and $ 1,450 for a resident or $ 1,580 for a nonresident with a 38-foot boat in a 30-foot slip.

On average, the 36 percent increase for 2015 brings those resident and nonresident fees to $ 1,020 and $ 1,122, respectively, for the 20-foot slip and $ 1,972 and $ 2,140, respectively, for the 30-foo…………… continues on Buffalo News

Family loses home when boat up in flames at Dunedin Marina
News from Bay News 9:

A family of lost its home late Saturday when a fire destroyed the cabin cruiser they lived on and damaged four other boats at the Dunedin Marina.

Raymond and Jamie Fisher, both 54, lived aboard the 38-foot Carver Aft-Cabin with their 6- and 8-year-old children. They weren’t home when the fire broke out around 7:15 p.m., but Raymond Fisher was injured when he went tried to reach back inside the boat to save a pet bird, tortoise and two lizards that were aboard.

According to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, Raymond Fisher tried to release the bird from its cage and suffered burns on one arm up to his ear. He was taken by ambulance to Tampa General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The bird was not saved.

“It was incredible how fast it went up,” witness Jessica West said. “Once it became engulfed in flames, it was about as tall as the palm trees, and there was just a lot of black smoke and the stench of burning fiberglass.”

Jamie Fisher said the family is now homeless.

Bay Hill Marina hit hard

Bay Hill Marina hit hard
News from Times Daily:

BAY HILL — Mickie Falke and her dog, Tank, paced back and forth around Bay Hill Marina and Resort, with no particular place to go.

The boat she was living on at the marina, located on Wheeler Lake in Limestone County, was damaged and is without power and running water, but she has stayed there because local shelters don’t allow pets.

“It’s just me and Tank,” she said. “Most of my family is in Florida.”

Falke said Tank, an American mastiff and bulldog mix, has been uneasy since Monday’s tornado.

“She’s a little stressed,” Falke said. “She paces back and forth, and stays right underneath me at all times. She won’t leave my side.”

Falke and Tank took shelter in the marina’s pool house with about 20 other people during the tornado.

“When the sirens went off, everybody ran up the dock and into the pool house, and you could see the tornado from across the river, and then it crossed the river,” she said. “We watched the docks go, the siding peeling off buildings, and stuff going into the river. We watched it all.”

Bubba Doss, co-owner of the marina, estimated 80 to 90 percent of the property is damaged.

The roof of Falke’s 57-foot boathouse has softball-size holes in it, and the interior has significant water damage. Falke said there is glass inside, alth…………… continues on Times Daily

Marina addresses empty boat slips
News from Daily Press:

POQUOSON – City insurance requirements have left many boat slips at Messick Point Marina empty. Repair costs necessary to qualify for insurance caused many watermen to choose other private or public marinas to dock.

But marina manager, Robert Moses of Port Messick LLC, believes he has found a way for boaters to dock at Messick Point without facing prohibitive costs.

Only one recreational boat sits docked among the 26 boat slips at Messick Point. New insurance and development projects spearheaded by Moses, however, have city officials confident that the marina will see renewed life.

The waterfront area is critical to the city’s fishing and seafood industry, but has remained largely undeveloped. Past proposals for the city-owned 18 acres have included a park or open green space, mixed-use retail, or gas or diesel sales. The City Council decided last May to allow Port Messick to manage the pier.

Marina Fest Offers a Variety of Water Activities

Marina Fest Offers a Variety of Water Activities
News from Patch.com:

The third annual Marina Fest was held May 19-20 and introduced visitors to a variety of recreational activities in Marina del Rey, including boating, fishing and underwater adventuring. Crowds at the compact, easy-to-navigate show were modest, giving exhibitors a chance to chat extensively with visitors in detail.

The star of the show was teenage sailor Abby Sunderland, who was there with her book, Unsinkable, about her attempt to become the youngest person to sail solo around the world.

A highlight of Marina Fest was the 136-foot-long Bill of Rights, a tall ship that was open for deck tours and sunset sails at Fisherman’s Village.

The vessel is a four-decade-old replica of a 19th century gaff topsail Gloucester schooner and operated by the American Tall Ship Institute.

Coast Guard Auxiliary representative Robin Neuman was at Marina Fest to recruit students for the range of safety classes offered at Cal and Del Rey Yacht Clubs from June to December. Classes include How to Read a Nautical Chart, Boating Skills and Seamanship: an Introduction to Boating Safety, and Suddenly in Command: What to Do if Your Skipper Becomes Incapacitated. In addition to valuable information, attendees received a discount on boating insurance.

2 bodies recovered at marina in Washington state

2 bodies recovered at marina in Washington state
News from WDRB:

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) – Divers recovered two bodies Thursday from sunken debris from a fire that burned boats and a boathouse at a marina in Washington state.

The two have not been officially identified, but police said the families of Jim Langei, 43, and Sterling Taylor, 33, have been notified. The two lived aboard a 42-foot boat that burned and sank in Friday’s fire at the Squalicum Harbor.

They owned the America’s Cup coffee shop near the marina. Police said a 911 call from the boat indicated the two were trapped. Their boat was one of as many as 10 boats destroyed in the fire.

Witnesses reported hearing fuel tank explosions as a black cloud drifted over downtown Bellingham, which is about 80 miles north of Seattle.

The fire was difficult to fight because of its size, and crews didn’t have a fire boat, Fire Department Assistant Chief Roger Christensen said at the time. The city decommissioned an old fire boat last year and didn’t have the money to replace it.

It took nearly a week to recover the bodies because the roof of the boathouse had collapsed on the boats. High winds delayed a barge with a crane needed to remove debris.

Divers started rigging debris for the crane Wednesday and removed the roof debris.

Officials expect the investigation into the cause of the fire and cleanup work will take seve…………… continues on WDRB

2 feared dead in Bellingham, Wash., marina fire
News from WDAM-TV:

By DONNA GORDON BLANKINSHIP
Associated Press

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) – Investigators believe two people missing after a large fire ripped through a marina in northwest Washington state were trapped aboard a burning boat that sank during the blaze.

The fire destroyed much of a dock at the Bellingham marina early Friday. It was difficult to fight because of its size, and crews didn’t have a fire boat, Fire Department Assistant Chief Roger Christensen said.

The city decommissioned an old fire boat last year and didn’t replace it because of the cost.

“We were unsuccessful in securing funds to replace it,” Christensen said. “We could have used it today.”

There was no early indication of the fire’s cause.

Authorities identified the missing people as 43-year-old Jim Langei and 33-year-old Sterling Taylor.

Police Sgt. Shawn Aiumu said there was a call from the boat on which the two lived when the fire broke out. He said divers will try to search the boat, but doing so will be dangerous because of the amount of debris in the water.

“The whole thing collapsed on the boats,” Aiumu said. “It’s just a mess.”

“We got a portion of a call from the boat,” he said. There’s a high probability they were trapped.”

As many as 10 vessels were in the private boathouse at the marina at the Port of Bellingham whe…………… continues on WDAM-TV

Island Cove Marina repairs continue a week after storm
News from Chattanooga Times Free Press:

Damage to boats and slips is all around Island Cove Marina Thursday after the area was hit by an EF3 tornado a week ago today.

Photo by Angela Lewis /Chattanooga Times Free Press.

Island Cove Marina officials said a $ 1 million insurance check they received Thursday will pay for a fraction of the estimated $ 5 million of damage the lakefront business sustained in a tornado a week ago today.

Also, the figure doesn’t include the boats that were damaged, officials said, with 70 percent of the 400 slips at the Harrison marina marred by the storm.

“We’ve got a lot of boats. We don’t know the extent of the damage,” said Terry Kelley, the marina’s general manager.

The remains of several large crumpled metal canopies that had covered boat slips lay half submerged in the water at the Highway 58 marina.

Workers were clearing downed trees from the marina entrance. Across the road, the twister’s path was visible by a swath of trees snapped in half and littered along the ground.

Kelley said about 25 boats sank after the storm that hit last Friday. He said workers used booms the day after the tornado to contai…………… continues on Chattanooga Times Free Press

Hardening of marina, boat dealer’s insurance rates seen after losses
News from IFAwebnews.com:

The marina and boat dealer’s insurance market appears to be hardening after insurers suffered increased losses in 2011, according to early indicators.

Due to the large losses carriers sustained during 2011′s storm season, carriers are increasing rates and deductibles across the entire class of business, according to a statement from Stuckey & Co., a specialty insurance provider based in Lake St. Louis, Mo., that has a network of 8,000 licensed insurance agents.

The company added that many carriers have “vanished” from the marketplace altogether and those that remain have a decreased appetite, especially in weather-prone regions.
