Boat Docking Guidelines
 
The following rules are established for the use of docking facilities owned and maintained by the Mahopac Point Owners Association.  These rules apply to the boat docking facilities on both Sycamore Road and Tamarack Road.
 
  1. Use of these facilities is restricted to members in good standing (Dues Paid In Full, not in violation of the bylaws or guidelines) of the Mahopac Point Owners Association
  2. All Powered watercraft must be properly registered for use in the State of New York.
  3. Only watercraft registered in the name of the property owner of the Mahopac Point Owners Association may use these facilities.   Each year the homeowner must provide a copy of the registration to the Association.   The registration will be kept on file with a secretary of the Mahopac Point Owners Association.
  4. All homeowners who wish to use the docking facilities must sign the INDEMNITY AGREEMENT attached to these guidelines.  Failure to sign this agreement will automatically prevent the homeowner from using the facilities.  The INDEMNITY AGREEMENTS will be maintained on file with the secretary of the Mahopac Point Owners Association. Each year the homeowner must complete a new INDEMNITY AGREEMENT without altering it.  If it is altered it will be considered a refusal to comply with the docking guidelines.
  5. Homeowners wanting a space must submit a dated letter to the Docks and Trails chairperson requesting a space.  The Docks and trails chairperson will provide guideline restrictions and inform the homeowner their standing position on the waiting list for a space.
  6. The Chairperson of the Docks Committee will maintain a list of all homeowners who wish to use the docking facilities.  In the event that a space becomes available, the chairperson will notify the next eligible homeowner on the list.  Upon such notice the homeowner will have 30 days to supply copy of current registration, Proof of insurance, signed INDEMNITY AGREEMENT and check for $400 to MPOA or they will be bumped and the next person on the list will be notified.   If bumped you must reapply with a written letter.
  7. To renew the homeowner must register their powered watercraft/boat with MPOA each year by May 1 of each year or the boat space will be given to the next person on the list.  Registration must include a copy of current registration, Proof of insurance, signed INDEMNITY AGREEMENT and check for $400 to MPOA.   If registration requirements have not been received by May first the next homeowner on the waiting list will be informed that the space is available.
  8. Canoes must be taken from the water and placed in the designated storage area.   Sail craft will have to be moored away from the shoreline, but not more than 50 feet from the shoreline.
