Boat Slip Rental

Rental Information

The contractual user of any County Boat Slip must be available during the scheduled time of the event and must have a copy of this rental contract at the event.

Boat Slip Hours

The rental period ends at noon the following morning, and the boat must leave the slip by noon, or the user will be charged for an additional day.

The user should consider this if there’s a need to launch and recover the boat and also to allow time to clean the Boat Slip upon completion. No overnight vehicle parking is allowed unless the rental is for an overnight stay. Any equipment or vehicles left on the premises after the rental period is over will result in billing for the subsequent day.
