Boat Removals Initiated / Transport to Residence or Storage Underway for Boats Left on Boat Racks (western-side only) or Club Docks after October 15

As of Saturday, October 17, 2020, more than 100 boats remained on boat racks on the western side of Highland Lakes, and on Club docks in violation of Club Rules requiring removal by October 15.

Boat removals are now underway. Boats that are identifiable will be delivered to your home and an invoice for the special assessment of $100.00 will be mailed. Unidentifiable boats will be removed to storage, and daily storage and other fees will apply and must be paid. If your boat was removed from a permanently assigned space, you have now forfeited that space since a condition of the permanent assignment was compliance with the Club’s boat and dock rules.

C. STORAGE ON DOCKS and RACKS AFTER OCTOBER 15: All boats must be removed from Club docks not later than October 15 of each year. In alternating years, all boats must be removed from boat racks by October 15, as determined by the Boat Dock committee and as published in the Newsette. Boats stored after October 15 in violation of this Rule will be removed in accordance with Paragraph F. of this Rule.

F. TRANSPORT TO RESIDENCE, REMOVAL TO STORAGE, PENALTIES FOR VIOLATIONS: Boats, kayaks, windsurfers, etc. of members stored in violation of these Rules which can be identified will be returned to the member’s residence. Boats which cannot be identified shall be removed to storage. All boat removals will be subject to a special assessment of $100.00. A daily storage charge of $5.00, calculated from the date the boat was removed to storage up to December 15 will be imposed, when a special winter storage fee of $250.00 will then be imposed. After June 15, a disposal fee of $250.00 will be imposed. Boats may not be retrieved between December 15 and April 15. The Club may, in its sole discretion, elect to acquire title to any boat that has been determined to be abandoned, in compliance with the “Abandoned Vessels Disposition Law,” N.J.S.A. 12:7C-7 et seq. (Adopted May 16, 2014 / Amended February 15, 2019)
