Two carts are available for use by all paying marina customers. These two carts should be used for larger loads within the marina and for load transfers from a customer's car to his boat. The carts are available at no charge and each customer should feel free to use the carts provided they are returned in a timely fashion to the cart storage area at the bottom of the ramp.
The Marina Manager will make additional efforts to try to obtain 1-2 additional carts.

CONTRACTORS

MINIMUM DOCKAGE
Minimum Dockage will be billed at a 25 foot minimum. Our slips are 30 foot in length and management's goal is to maximize the space within the marina. As the only marina in the city, space is at a premium.
As such, boats less than 25 feet shall be charged a minimum dockage of 25 feet.

Bathrooms are scheduled to be cleaned three times a week by the cleaning staff for Lola's restaurant.

Since all customers will be in very close proximity to their neighbors and to other boaters in the marina, marina customers are requested to refrain from any activities producing excessive noise. This includes high volume music, yelling, screaming, dj music, fireworks, firearm discharge, air horns, musical instruments, breaking of glass or bottles.

PETS
Fox Point Marina is a pet-friendly marina. Owners of boats are allowed to have a maximum of (2) pets per boat. Customers are expected to be diligent in cleaning up after their docks as well as making sure their pets are restrained. Pets should never be a threat or an annoyance to other customers and, in cases where a pet(s) become a problem, the pets may no longer be welcome on the marina premises.

POLLUTION
Discharge of any materials, toxic or otherwise, into the waters of the Providence Harbor is not permitted excepting grey water discharge for boaters (permissible by RI law)and non-toxic liquids.

PUMP OUT
The Marina is in the process of obtaining a official, federally certified pump-out station. The installation and operation of this facility is slated for Q2, 2014. The use of the pumpout station will require a fee that will be charged by the marina to subsidize the cost of the facility. This fee and rates for usage will be determined at a later date.

SECURITY
Fox Point Marina Management intends to make personal security a priority for all customers. A new gate/security system will be installed in Q1 2014 to prevent non-marina customers from entering without access to the security code.

Access codes for the new gate will be provided by the Marina Manager and the gate code should only be given to family or close friends.

SIGNAGE
Signage from a customer boat anywhere on marina property will not be allowed unless previously approved for a special purpose by the Marina Manager.

The Marina Manager will be allowed to hang a sign from his boat on the water-side of B-dock to display contact information for transient dockage. In addition, signage may be permitted for select commercial customers such as houseboats who will be using their boats for commercial purposes. Such signage would need to be approved by both the Marina Manager and the Owners prior to hanging the sign in the marina or on the marina premises.

TRASH AND DOCK MAINTENANCE
Marina customers will not be allowed to leave trash in any form on the sides of the docks. Trash is unsightly and often impedes passing. Trash in any form will not be tolerated and customers will be required to take immediate action to dispose of such trash.

All marina trash shall be disposed of in the large Trash Dumpster located on the side of Whiskey Republic. Use of the dumpster for non-marina related trash is not permitted.

Each customer will be required to keep this dock area free of clutter and obstructing build-up such as boat gear, electrical cords, tools, lumber, ladders, coolers, etc.

WINTER SNOW REMOVAL
Fox Point Marina Management will make best efforts to remove snow from the docks. This may or may not include snowplowing and the use of ice-melting salt to clear ice and snow. Snow-melting salt will be placed in sealed buckets along the dock for customers to use as necessary.

Marina customers are also encouraged to clear their own areas to their boats to avoid ice build-up.
