Moorage Agreement



MOORAGE RULES

Owner meaning you, the client SHVL meaning us, Sunshine Houseboat Vacations Ltd.:

  1. Vessel owners shall provide, upon request, to the SHVL office evidence of legal ownership of the vessel, such as legal registration and/or Bill of Sale. The moorage member shall maintain valid liability insurance in their name always while moored and shall provide evidence of such insurance to the SHVL office annually. If a vessel has more than one owner, the insurance policy must be in the names of all owners. Prior to the expiration date of any insurance policy covering a vessel, the vessel owner shall provide evidence of renewal of liability insurance. Failure by the vessel owners to have adequate and valid liability insurance covering the vessel at any time shall be grounds for immediate cancellation of moorage. Liability insurance shall be a minimum of two million dollars ($2,000,000) on each vessel moored in the moorage basin.
  2. Boat owners are expected to take due care and caution to maintain their vessel to ensure the vessel runs as intended. Furthermore, houseboat owners must ensure their boats are maintained in good running condition at all times (can be started easily), are not neglected and repair anything that is unsafe or could cause a safety issue in the future. Failure to do so could result in immediate eviction from our marina. Sunshine will advise clients where concern arises and will assist when needed. Sunshine will give appropriate time lines to deal with safety concerns, provide a conditions email with specific dates by which the issue must be resolved by. This policy helps protect the owner, their neighbors, all other marina clientele and Sunshine from potential damage, lost time and financial impacts caused by owner neglect. Note it is also a federal and chargeable offense to neglect your vessel (see transport canada for your responsibilities as an owner).
  3. All Vessels approaching, using, or leaving the Floating dock, shall do so in a cautious and seaman-like manner, so as not to roll up swell, or do damage to other craft or property. Speed shall not exceed three (3) knots. Ballasts need to be empty before entering the marina and ideally before reaching a distance of 200 feet. Boats are directed to stay out if there is a storm and wait until winds reduce before entering the marina. 
  4. For the safety and protection of all vessels at our marina, docks, the waterpark, property and shoreline we encourage all wakesurf boats to surf outside the bay or in a north south direction. Wake surf boats can create waves of 1-4 feet below the surface at a distance of 1km so surfing within the bay can still cause waves that damage.
  5. Each Owner is responsible for the safe mooring of his/her vessel. Owners shall furnish and maintain their own safe line and charring gear. Chaffing gear shall be attached to the boat only and not to the Floats.
  6. Owners are responsible for periodically checking their vessel, lines and fenders to ensure that they are secure.
  7. Security is the responsibility of the vessel Owners. We encourage all boat owners to remove and or secure all items in such a way as to not invite theft or vandalism. Houseboat cabins are the exception and we must have access to the cabins in case of an emergency. Houseboats have two options to ensure access: 1. Leave your door open or 2, have a key lock box for your door keys. Keyed with a code supplied by Sunshine. Ignition keys must be in the ignition or left in plain site at the helm at all times. All houseboats are required to use a minimum 1-inch rope to tie from the end of the vessel to the dock.
  8. Major restoration or maintenance projects are not to be undertaken on a Wharf in the Marina, unless permission has been granted. Owners may carry out routine maintenance work, but no litter is to be thrown overboard or left on the premises. The storage of flammable liquids, oily rags, etc. is prohibited.
  9. Vessels may not be unofficially posted for sale at the Sunshine Marina. With the Permission of SHVL, any moorage client vessel advertised for sale at the SHVL marina will be subject to a 5% commission payable to SHVL on sales made by the vessel owner, and an 8% commission on any vessels sold with the direct assistance of SHVL.
  10. Any Vessel Moored at a Wharf without authorization will be towed away at the Owner’s expense.
  11. Children under the age of 12 years shall not be permitted on the docks unless accompanied by an adult.
  12. Dogs are prohibited on the docks unless on a leash under the control of the Owner.
  13. Vessel Owners and guests must conduct themselves in a manner conducive to the safety of the harbor and the quiet enjoyment of others.
  14. No person shall cause any Live Aboard, Vessel or Watercraft to Moor or to remain Moored overnight or remain in a Water-lot Area without written permission of the Dock Manager.
  15. No person shall secure the Berth of any Vessel or Watercraft to the Dock by use of a lock or otherwise in a manner that prevents the Dock Manager from relocating the Vessel or Watercraft.
  16. When safe to do so, when required by limited Mooring space, any person in charge of a Vessel or Watercraft may Raft the Vessel or Watercraft, provided that no more than two Vessels or Watercraft are Rafted.
  17. Sanitary services are available. Vessels using the Marina must be equipped with holding tanks with the exception of runabouts and other smaller craft.
  18. The maintenance and safety of Vessels open to the public shall remain the responsibility of the Vessel Owner.
  19. Vessel Owners are not permitted to charge a fee nor solicit donations for any purposes without the consent of the Dock Manager.
  20. Vessel Owners are not permitted to sublet their slips for any duration of time. If the client is unable to occupy their space, we allow a 1-year deferral, which allows us to rent out the slip for a year, while permitting clients to return the next year. If this is the case, contact SHVL to arrange further disposition. 
  21. All Vessels must be clearly marked, with the name or registration number as required by law.
  22. Boat trailers (excluding Upland Campground site renters) will be stored at our Storage facility (Sandy Shores) at a rate of $60/season. Owners may choose to store their trailer elsewhere and are welcome to do so. The rate includes one drop off and pick up/season. Additional pickups are $25/trip. 
  23. NO SMOKING is permitted on Sunshine Houseboat Docks, inside or near any buildings.
  24. SHVL property is a cannabis-free environment. A person must not consume cannabis while: in or on any public spaces, around any minors, or in a vehicle or boat. This applies whether the vehicle/boat is in motion or not, and applies to all passengers whether driving or not.
  25. Generator usage hours are between 8am to 9pm daily.
  26. Houseboat owners must maintain their septic tanks such that they are pumped as needed, treated with approved septic tank chemicals. If a boat owner's tanks are causing excess smell, they may be required to have their tanks emptied and treated at the owners expense at any time. 


WATERPARK RULES

MARINA FUEL POLICIES

The following policy was implemented as of January 1, 2020 as per our amended insurance policy and in accordance with safe marina practices governed by Navigable Waters Canada. In addition to fire/emergency issues, Sunshine takes environmental safety very seriously. Boaters including houseboat and small boat clients are STRICTLY PROHIBITED FROM TRANSFERRING FUEL ANYWHERE ON THE DOCKS/MARINA. The policy details as follows:

  1. Any person(s) transferring fuel from one tank (boat or other) to another tank or container anywhere on the docks, while in their boat slip, on the boat, or anywhere in the Marina not designed for the dispensing of fuel is strictly prohibited and may have their mooring contract canceled immediately without refund. Houseboat clients with generators will be fueled at the fuel dock or assisted by Sunshine staff with sunshine equipment.
  2. The Fuel Dock is the only area in the marina where fuel transfer is allowed from Sunshine fuel pumps. Fueling will abide by fueling guidelines and by Sunshine staff. It is the only area equipped for emergency/environmental response to a fueling emergency or spill.
  3. Static charge on the docks presents a real and serious threat for fire or explosion during fuel transfer. In addition, due to proximity of houseboats and sources of ignition including outside BBQs and electrical sources, clients and their property are of great concern. An infraction of this rule is considered a serious & immediate safety threat to the Marina and its patrons.
  4. Absolutely no fuel transferring on Sunshine upland property area including the launch from one tank to another except by Sunshine staff. This is in accordance with fire, safety and environmental regulations and new rules implemented with our insurance policy.
  5. When we are fueling your boat, you are required to exit the boat.


SLIP ALLOCATION

Sunshine Houseboat Vacations Ltd endeavors to ensure moorage clients will receive the same slip as previous seasons. If for some reason we need to move a client to another slip, due to dock reconfiguration or construction, the client will be given the option to select a slip before any new clients. We will do our utmost best to get the same spot for our valued clients.

In the spring, we welcome new clients to visit the marina and will then be allocated a spot on our docks. This can occur when our docks launch between June 18th and July 1st. Please contact our Marina around this time to see when we expect our docks to be floating. This is a first come first serve basis. We cannot allocate new client spots without a site visit because our slips are not identical and boat size and location preference will determine the final dock slip choice.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Unless otherwise terminated, SHVL may terminate this agreement at any time, without cause, upon not less than fourteen (14) days.

I acknowledge and agree that SHVL is merely renting moorage/winter storage space to the customer under this agreement and is not responsible for the adequate storage or safekeeping of any of the personal property or chattels stores on the premises. The customer shall maintain on all personal property and chattels in, on or about the promises, a policy of insurance covering damage by fire, extended coverage perils, water, snow, vandalism and burglary. The customer hereby releases SHVL from any and all such claims for damage or loss to personal property and chattels in, on or about the premises and hereby waives all rights or recovery against SHVL in connection with any damage which is or would be covered by such insurance. To the extent that the customer does not maintain the required insurance coverage for the full value of such personal property the customer shall be deemed to have been self-insured.
