2018 Spring Newsletter

SPRING IS IN THE AIR!!!

Temperatures are rising, the sun is setting later, and boaters are calling in anticipation of the ice going out!  Exciting times, the boating season and summer is just around the corner! 

As the weather warms up, we begin launching your boats.  Please be mindful of our Spring Launching Policy of a minimum of two week’s notice to prepare your boat for the season.  Should you require extra work done to your boat, kindly call us three weeks in advance to prepare.

SEASONAL REMINDERS:

SAFETY CHECK – Our staff perform an annual safety check to ensure all government regulated safety gear is on board.  If needed, we will replace your flares (which unfortunately expire every three years) and dispose of your old ones.  Outdated flares bring a hefty fine and we want to ensure you are properly equipped.  Many customers bring their safety gear home for the winter season, please send me a reminder so I can check you off our list.  If you have any boats not at the marina, a “safety check list” is available at the office.

NAVIGATIONAL CHARTS – We will be placing a navigational charts order at the start of the season.  Many have navigational systems, however if you appreciate the use of a paper chart, (like we do!) let us know and you can purchase an updated one.

MARINE ACCESSORIES & WATER TOYS - Our Sea Value Program provides marine products, water toys and accessories at reasonable prices.  Upon your spring arrival, you will find our Catalog for you to peruse.  Alternatively, the Catalog is available on our website at www.ParrySoundMarine.com.  Simply call us with your requests or fill in the order form and hand it in at the office for next day delivery.

GARBABE PROGRAM – this program is very convenient and accessible 24\7 for customers who choose to join.  Disposal rates climb yearly, and we try to keep it affordable for our patrons. The program is $95 for the season (billed in the fall). Contact the office to sign up. We have many furry friends that frequent our “bear safe” bins – please respect the safety of others and do not dispose of garbage outside of the bins or in any other part of the marina.   

CAR PARKING – Each boat slip in the marina includes ONE parking spot in our lower level lot.  Additional vehicles must register in the office for a parking pass at a cost of $10 (including HST).  Guest parking is located on the hill behind our Marine Store.  Your seasonal parking pass is included with your Statement and may be used interchangeably in any vehicle.  Please ensure your guests have a valid parking pass and display it in their vehicle.  Should guests arrive after hours, the pass may be purchased in advance and picked up in the office. 

PAYMENT – we accept a number of forms of payment.  *  Email money transfer: please make payment to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. through your online banking site.

Cash, Credit Card or Cheque – please make cheques payable to Parry Sound Marine.

*   Automatic Credit card – Monthly statements will be sent at the beginning of the month and the credit card transaction will take place on the 15th.  Should you have questions upon receipt of your statement, please call prior to the middle of the month.  Let us know if you require your credit card slip as proof of payment.  If you would like to choose this option, please pop in the office to sign up. Please note, credit cards expire often – please keep us on your list to update.

*  Payment is required within 30 days. Overdue accounts will be charged 1.5% per month.

INSURANCE  – The marina does not provide insurance for your vessel, please provide us a copy of your annual insurance renewal for our files.  Email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or have your Insurer fax us a copy to 705-746-7741.

EXTRA KEY – Don’t forget to leave a second key for our “key board” located in our office.  If for some reason we need to move/service your boat, or you forget your keys, we have a back up.

 

Welcome back!  Cheers to a warm, sunny summer and making many memories on Georgian Bay.
