Mooring Maintenance



As many may know, recently there have been two boats breaking loose from their moorings in relatively calm conditions. Also, as everyone knows, according to out Standing Rules, it is the responsibility of the member to maintain their mooring. Prudence, you know her, suggests that periodically your mooring tackle be inspected.

Although the officers do not endorse any specific vendors for serving your mooring, the following information has been deemed as possibly something the KYC membership may be interested in.

My name is Dan Smith Jr. and I have been cleaning boats at KYC for the last 15 years.  One of my customers forwarded your email regarding mooring inspections last week and I've received many inquiries since then. I wanted to share the email I'm sending to my current customers ( below), as well as my overall pricing structure.  
Please reach out if there is another way I can assist the club membership or if you would more clarification.

I hope you are enjoying the summer so far....

A lot of members have been asking me about inspecting their moorings so I wanted to send you an email explaining what I am doing.  First, I am not comfortable with a "quick" inspection.  To be accurate each link and connection needs to be examined.  You know the saying about the weakest link.  Only one piece in the 50' to 100' long mooring system needs to fail for the entire system to fail.

I will examine each link, shackle, swivel and mushroom and report conditions back to you in a formal report.  For your convenience, I will include the applicable mooring specifications from the KYC bylaws.  I will make no judgments as to the soundness of your mooring system unless a piece of the system is significantly worn and safety is at stake.   It is up to you to judge whether your mooring system is good enough for your boat.

Any email, estimate or report should be in no way considered a guarantee, warrantee or determination about the holding capacity of your mooring system.  I will only report on existing conditions and the regulations of KYC and accept no responsibility whatsoever as to the actual capacity of your mooring.  This is a visual inspection conducted underwater in limited visibility.  All responsibility and authority rests with the mooring owner.

I have attached an estimate for your convenience.  If you would like me to schedule an inspection and give you a report on your mooring set up please respond to this email. 


Pricing based on boat size (and likely chain length):
Under 29'      $98
30' - 35'       $121
36' - 45'       $143
46' and up   $162
