Small Craft Warnings

No one is out there today in small boats, with the not-really-a-Hurricane just off our coast.

However, the boat docks were discussed at a meeting of the Board of Directors this morning. There are currently many boats on the boat racks WITHOUT stickers to identify them as belonging to OMP residents. The racks have gotten so crowded this summer, people are wondering just whom all those boats belong to. And if they should be there. Where's the sticker?

The idea of posting a sign came up - - but there is already a sign there. The sign that's in the above picture. It clearly states the rules for the dock area. And the penalties for not following the rules.

At this point in the year, everyone's busy thinking about closing up their homes for the season, and storing the boats in the garage, the shed, wherever... So for this summer, it's kind of a moot point to talk about rules and stickers.

But NEXT year... rules will be enforced, starting at the beginning of the season. If you are a resident who uses the boat racks, I'm sure you'll be eager to comply. Why not? Rules are there to help us as residents get more enjoyment out of our docks and beaches.

And... It's easy enough to put a sticker on, and avoid the alternative.
