Greetings from Scotty Yates, Paradise Bay Dockmaster
The current dock wait lists updated 2/1/2022 is available at the office and posted at the fish station billboards. If you have signed up for the Paradise Bay/ Sarasota Bay dock lists and your name or information is incorrect, have been left off the list or not in the correct order please contact me and we will get that fixed.
Reminding all boaters if you have a dock now and purchase a new/bigger boat your dock cannot be guaranteed. If you have storage and you purchase a new/bigger trailer your storage space cannot be guaranteed.
The Dockmaster is required to assign docks by boat size. ALWAYS check before you buy a bigger boat.
The Dock billing season is from January 1-December 31. Next year bills will be mailed or delivered October 1 and due November 1 for the 2023 season. This will make it more manageable to assign open docks for upcoming seasons.
Now that “season” is in full swing, the Dockmaster has been instructed by the Board of Directors to utilize all Dock slips.
ALL ASSIGNED DOCKS MUST BE ACTIVELY IN USE and have the shareholders boat at the dock or lose dock privileges.
Paradise Bay Boat Rules and Regulations pertaining to deteriorating boats and trailers are to be enforced as all boats must be kept in seaworthy condition and trailers must be in serviceable working order.
We are all looking forward to a great season of boating & fishing in our beautiful piece of “Paradise.”
Thank you for your cooperation and continued support!
Paradise Bay Dockmaster
