June 2013 Mega Storm
Mooring lines are critical to the safety of your boat and the moored boats of other members.  Having the right equipment is essential and this page provides information about the moorings, the parts you'll need to safely moor your boat and some diagrams and other resources explaining how all the pieces come together to keep your boat safely attached to the mooring.  The image on the right proves why the right setup is critical.  It was taken at the height of the June 2012 storm that, sadly, left three moored boats crashed into the rocks along Highway S.

Mooring Set Up
2018 marks the beginning of a four-year renovation project to our mooring field.  The renovations include removing the older style 55 gallon drum anchors and replacing them with engineered concrete pads weighing 2,400 pounds on land and 1,402 pounds under water.  Over the renovation period, moorings will be either the new concrete pads or the older style 55 Gallon drum filled with concrete.  All moorings include a 3/8 chain with swivels and a mooring ball.  The club hires a diver and inspects the moorings every two years and replaces all worn parts (barrels, chains, swivels) as needed.  You need to provide all the parts to connect your mooring lines/boat to the chain the club provides.
