Spring Is Coming!
We know that winter is not quite finished, but we also know that spring is not far away. The PBM staff is working hard getting ready for the 2017 season. We must have your signed Agreement, Current Insurance on file & have your Account in good standing prior to launching your boat. If you have any questions, please contact Krishna.

The Spring Launch Sequence
As you know Pikes Bay Marina has some unique challenges for scheduling launch. All marinas have the challenge of weather but what is special to PBM is the concept of “First out, Last in” or “Last out, First in.” We would prefer to publish a weekly list, but because we have several storage areas to plan for, our schedule changes daily. To make launch as efficient as possible, it is very important that you have your boat ready to launch as early as possible. If you decide that you want your boat out of the sequence & we have to move it to a different location, there will be an additional charge. Please select if you would like to be present at launch. There are 2 days per week we can schedule for members being present at launch: Mondays or Fridays. These are on a first-come-first-served basis. Also, take the time to plan & complete your spring projects early & we will do our best to accommodate any special requests.
Any work performed on Pikes Bay property (either by you the owner, or a third party) that is going to result in any type of waste product such as any residue that is produced during sanding & bottom painting or a project that involves the use of any chemicals or fluid changes, requires a work permit. Please fill out and submit your work permit here or stop at the office.
An outside contractor is any business you might hire “outside” of Pikes Bay Marina. Please know all “Outside Contractors” must have a current signed release form & have sufficient/current insurance coverage with Pikes Bay Marina & Goldridge Group of Bayfield listed as additional insured. When Contractors arrive/leave PBM they need to sign in/out at the Ship Store for each visit. If you have any questions please contact Krishna or Sherry.
