Boats Must Be Removed From Docks and Racks by Friday, October 15, 2021

Boats must be removed from all docks and from all racks on the eastern side of Highland Lakes by Friday evening, October 15, 2021, (As indicated on your 2021 boating sticker).

Please take NOTICE that all boats, canoes, kayaks, etc. on all Club docks must be removed by Friday, October 15, 2021, in order to provide time for the Club’s staff to relocate the docks for winter storage. This NOTICE also requires the removal of all boats, canoes, kayaks, etc. stored on the wooden boat racks and on the kayak racks on the eastern side of Highland Lakes by Friday, October 15, 2021.

In alternating years, once the racks are clear the wooden boat racks on the eastern side of Highland Lakes are inspected and repairs are made if necessary in the fall and in the early spring. In addition to maintenance and repair, the purpose of this program is to require that all boats, canoes, kayaks, etc. return home in alternate years, ensuring that for the most part the spaces on these racks are actively used by members and not occupied by boats, etc. as simply storage locations.

Part F. of Club Rule No. 25 provides as follows:
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 $500.00. 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.
