Expect&nbsp;sunshine both days (sunscreen!) and afternoon highs barely above 80. &nbsp;NE winds will be gusty for sailors, as high as 15+, also rare for late June.</div> News http://www.morningstarmarinas.com/blog/post/Weekly-News-and-Events-1015 Storm and Dock Safety Tips http://www.morningstarmarinas.com/blog/post/Storm-and-Dock-Safety-Tips-1014 <p><strong>Storm Preparation</strong></p> <p>As I am sure most of you know, quality lines and fenders are your first line of defense in protecting your vessel in the advent of a storm while docked at a marina. Dock lines should be of a diameter that fits the size of your vessel (Charts found on most dock line packaging) and of a length which run at least &frac34; the length of your vessel. Quarter inch (1/4&rdquo;) dock lines 15&rsquo; in length on a 50&rsquo; vessel are totally inaccurate for the purpose at hand.&nbsp; At the same time, dry rotted, stiff, none pliable lines are totally ineffective when tested in a storm. Dock lines should be pliable with the ability to stretch under a load without breaking. One simple test is to see how easily you can coil your dock lines on the dock. If they coil easily in a tight circular fashion your lines are fresh and ready for the season. If they are resistant to coiling in a tight pattern, it may be time to change your lines. I know new dock lines don&rsquo;t come cheap, but I can assure you they are a lot less expensive than most everyone&rsquo;s deductibles on their insurance policies.</p> <p>Properly sized and inflated fenders are also extremely important in preserving your asset so I would ask that you take the time to address the storm readiness of your vessel, dock lines and fenders.&nbsp;&nbsp; If you are not sure if your lines and fenders are suitable for the purpose at hand, please contact the marina at 912-634-1128 as we will be more than happy to assist in making sure you are ready for any and all weather events.</p> <p>A couple additional vessel readiness tips:</p> <p>-When leaving your boat for any period of time, <strong>turn off and disconnect</strong> the waterline from your boat.</p> <p>-Double all dock lines (Bow, Stern, Forward and Aft Spring Lines)</p> <p>-Have additional lines and fenders readily available for marina staff to add in the advent of a weather event.&nbsp; Lines and fenders tangled and buried in cockpit lockers is not considered readily available.</p> <p>-A clean boat is the sign of a well maintained vessel so if you haven&rsquo;t given your boat a bath recently, do yourself and your vessel a favor and put some shine to her.&nbsp; If not interested in doing so yourself, we offer a diversity of detailing services so do not hesitate to contact us at 912-634-1128 for a quote to keep your vessel looking great. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Dry Storage Dock Safety</strong>&nbsp;</p> <p>In an effort to maintain a safe launch and recovery area at our dry storage docks, I would ask that all dry storage customers refrain from tying up your boats on the staging dock where we launch and retrieve all of our dry storage vessels.&nbsp; This area needs to be clear for staff to be able to launch and retrieve vessels in a safe and orderly fashion. We ask that if you are unable to find an open space on our rack docks, that you contact the Dock Master on Channel 16 in an effort to be advised of an available slip.</p> <p>The staging docks (launch and recovery dock area) must also be clear in the evening in the event we are called in during the early hours of the morning for a vessel being brought in by Sea Tow etc. which may need to be hauled out of the water immediately.&nbsp; If we have to move customer boats off the staging dock in an emergency, this could and has created a difficult situation for all parties involved.&nbsp;</p> <p>If you have any questions regarding this request, please feel free to contact me at any point in time for we are here to be of assistance in any way possible.</p> <p>Thank you for helping keep Morningstar Marinas as safe as possible.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> News http://www.morningstarmarinas.com/blog/post/Storm-and-Dock-Safety-Tips-1014 Photo Contest Week 2 Submissions http://www.morningstarmarinas.com/blog/post/Photo-Contest-Week-2-Submissions-1013 We’re in the second week of our Summer photo contest that could win you a Yeti.

Please have all boat work done by 1 p.m. on the weekends, as there will be no work rack movements after that time. Also, we ask for your consideration by giving a 30-45 minute call ahead window to have your boat launched, so we can better meet the needs of all our customers. If we do not receive a call ahead, you will be placed at the end of the launch list. Lastly, for customers needing their batteries charged, we will be happy to pull you down to charge overnight. If you have any questions feel free to call or ask a Morningstar associate.</div> <div> <hr /> <h1>WEATHER AND TIDES</h1> <hr /> </div> <div>Hot temps and calm seas this weekend will make a great one to get out and catch some fish!

If you need to pick up your complimentary pool wrist band, please stop by the Marina Business Office (Unit 206).

Our Marina team cannot be responsible for boats without proper equipment onboard.</li> <li>Our harbor is beautiful yet small with limited launch slips, so if unused boats are occupying courtesy slips on busy days, they will be put away in the dry storage building.</li> <li>Please use the call-ahead concierge service no sooner than two hours prior to your anticipated arrival at RHYC to use your boat and depart the harbor.</li> <li>On summer weekends and holidays with the high volume of dry storage launches, we may need to suspend the call-ahead service and go to a first- come, first served format for our boaters.</li> <li>During busy weekends and holidays, we will be unable to accommodate requests from our dry storage boaters for overnight wet slip dockage in the harbor due to the limited availability of courtesy slips.</li> <li>When you call for your boat launch, please provide us with your &ldquo;end-of-day boating plans&rdquo;. Just let the Marina staff know your ETA back at RHYC and if you are heading back out in the evening or next morning.&nbsp; This way we can return your boat safely to your dry slip and open up &ldquo;courtesy slips&rdquo; in our beautiful little harbor for our late arrivals</li> <li>Quiet Hours: When you are aboard your boat in the harbor, music needs to be maintained at a reasonable level and turned off after 10 p.m. as per Reserve HOA rules.&nbsp;</li> <li>Bimini Tops: It is the boat owner&rsquo;s responsibility to put down the bimini top and secure it firmly and properly, prior to the boat&rsquo;s return to dry storage. The marina team exercises every precaution and uses the utmost care in handling our members&rsquo; boats during movements to and from the dry storage building and cannot be responsible for any damage to bimini tops/framework which have not been properly secured by the boat owner. Thank you for allowing us to provide a great day of boating at RHYC!!!</li> </ul> News http://www.morningstarmarinas.com/blog/post/Summer-Tips-Reminders-999 Weekly News and Events http://www.morningstarmarinas.com/blog/post/Weekly-News-and-Events-998 <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td valign="top"> <div>Kings Point Boaters,<br /><br />The upcoming holiday weekend is looking like it&rsquo;s going to be a good one &ndash; the weather should be beautiful and it promises to be BUSY on the lake!<br />&nbsp;<br />Since the holiday weekend will be busy, we are anticipating our launch dock to fill up quickly and repeatedly. For our dry storage customers, we encourage you to call for launches when you are on property, so we can get boats in the water as quickly and efficiently as possible. For our wet slip customers, we have dockhands dedicated just to you this summer. We will be monitoring VHF channel 71, so call if you need anything and look for blue shirts on the docks. The faces might not look familiar, but they are there to take care of you!<br />&nbsp;<br />You will be seeing lots of new faces at the marina this season &ndash; mine included! And since I would like to meet as many of you as possible face to face, I will be set up in the Clubhouse from 9 a.m. &ndash; 10 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday this weekend with coffee and doughnuts.

Woohoo!&nbsp;I hadn’t been at the helm of my boat in over a year, and it felt great. But, I also was a little rusty, so I practiced &ndash; making circles, stopping the boat, going in and out of the slip, etc. I recommend you all do the same when getting back on the water for the first time this season.

The season is beginning. I love this time of year. It&rsquo;s so nice to see everyone returning for the summer. As the season gears up, we will be expanding our hours for the month of April.<br />&nbsp;<br />The Skipper’s crew and I have been busy this winter preparing for the coming season. We have completed a lot of projects, the largest of which was cleaning the facility of the black tire soot you told us about in our customer survey. We rented a concrete cleaning machine and scrubbed all concrete surfaces. We also have pressure washed the remaining decking on site. All of this work was done in preparation for replacing the forklift tires on both of the lifts with gray tires. The first set of tires have been installed. The second set will be installed within the next week. We will then do another cleaning of the facility before season.</div> <div><a href="http://mstarproperties.us8.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=73d718bbad&amp;e=543c592ffd" target="_blank"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/8351828b-144d-4ff7-8183-226cfab4a052.jpg" alt="" width="480" height="360" align="none" /></a></div> <div>&nbsp;<br />Additionally, we have been working on plans for a new pavilion area for you to enjoy. Currently we are in the permitting process for this project. The pavilion will replace the existing smaller pavilion with a larger space for you to enjoy the shade on those hot Carolina summer days.<br />&nbsp;<br />Also, we invested in concrete repairs needed in the closed building and on the tarmac. Two large areas of damaged concrete were removed and replaced. This ensures that the forklifts can move safely around the yard.<br />&nbsp;<br />Lastly, we have been planning another fun summer for you with a full events calendar, kicking off Saturday, April 16, for our first annual In-Water Boat Show. North Point Water Sports will be displaying an array of their wakeboard and pontoon boats. Lunch also will be served in addition to the boat show. Check out some more of the first exciting events the staff and I have planned for this summer below.

Seems that the groundhog was right this year, and winter is all but over (fingers crossed). Time to start thinking about getting back out to the marina. Your boats have missed you!<br />&nbsp;<br />We have lots to tell you about this month, and most of it has to do with water - water on the docks, water to wash boats, new facilities in the ladies room - we are all about the water! Keep reading for the latest updates, as well as information on upcoming area boater safety courses and our hours of operation going forward.&nbsp;The 2016 boating season is shaping up to be absolutely fantastic. Can&rsquo;t wait to see you all soon.<br />&nbsp;<br />Chris Higgs, General Manager<br />Morningstar Marinas | Kings Point<br />704-892-3223 &nbsp; <h3><strong>NEW BOAT WASH AREA</strong></h3> &nbsp; <div><strong><a href="http://mstarproperties.us8.list-manage.com/track/click?u=f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17&amp;id=c40607dd7f&amp;e=543c592ffd" target="_blank"><img src="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f0de16afeb1fc1c6bb1ecab17/images/8e048de6-f4a8-4342-9f42-6c8e99fc8b1b.jpg" alt="" width="480" height="360" align="none" /></a></strong></div> <span style="color: #000033;">&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="color: #000033;">It&rsquo;s official &ndash; we are now EPA compliant, and able to wash boats again.

The racks in the gravel area will be for service only. So when we ask what you&rsquo;ll be doing with your boat when you request that it go on a cradle, we&rsquo;re not being nosy &ndash; your answer is very important, as it will dictate where we put your boat!
