Boat Removal Notice from Boat Racks and Grounds

The Building and Grounds Committee, together with the Boat and Dock Committee, will again inspect and repair boat racks this fall. The program requires the removal of all boats stored on boat racks and Club property on the eastern side of Highland Lakes by October 14, 2013. Once the racks and area are clear, maintenance and landscaping can be performed late in the fall and in the early spring.

Some boats appear abandoned or otherwise unused. These boats are taking up valuable space that could be better used by members interested in boating. Furthermore, clearing the racks of abandoned/unused boats avoids the expense of adding additional boat racks, and taking over more land. Lastly, it eliminates the excuse that members have that there is “no rack space and storing my boat on the ground is the only choice I have.”

All freeways on the lakes east of the Main Lake are affected by this notice in addition to the following locations where boats are stored on racks or on the ground.

(East Removal)

  • Canistear Road Boat Launch on Indian Lake
  • Beach 5 on Lake 4, Dam on Cherry Ridge Road
  • Beach 3 at- Lookover Lane – Lakeside Drive East
  • Beach 4 – Lakeside Drive East north of Island Drive
  • Freeway at Shadow Lane and Lakeside Drive East
  • Freeway on Lakeside Drive East between Beach 4 and Shadow Lane
  • Freeway at end of Lakeside Drive East and Island Road
  • Freeway at Lakeside Drive East and Birch Road

All boats stored at these locations must be removed by October 15. Any boat that can not be identified through either a Club permit, NJ registration or hull identification number will be declared abandoned and disposed of in accordance with New Jersey law.

We understand your concern that you will lose your rack space if you bring your boat home. The Committees are in agreement that the rack space you have vacated will be assigned to you and that this will be your space until such time you no longer are a member in good standing. An inventory of boats stored at these locations will begin shortly by Highland Lakes Security. We will require boat removal from Club properties in alternating years, ensuring that all boats are removed from Club property at least once every two years.

The Security Manager has been appointed as the contact person for this program. Please feel free to contact her with any questions you may have at 973-764-4266.
