The Moorage Committee (hereafter referred to as the Committee) shall consist of six members:
- Commodore (Chairman)
- Moorage Manager
- Port Captain
- Assistant Port Captain
- A Member selected by the tenants of the Moorage. The tenants representative shall be selected by vote of the tenants, from candidates nominated by one or more of the tenants, at the December General Membership meeting.
- A Member appointed by the Commodore, who is not a tenant of the Moorage.
With the exception of the Moorage Manager, the term of office shall be one (1) year, however, the members can be re-appointed for successive years.
The Committee shall prepare and submit to the Board of Directors of MCYC written standards of appearance, condition and safety for all structures and improvements connected with the Moorage facilities. The standards shall be reviewed by the Board, then passed on to the General Membership for adoption, either in their original form or as revised by the Board. The standards shall be mailed to each member, not less than ten (10) days prior to any vote by the General Membership. The standards, once adopted, may be revised only by a vote of the General Membership, adhering to the above notification requirement.
The Committee shall continuously evaluate the structures and improvements located at the Moorage and, when necessary, submit to the Board reports of deficiency and suggested corrections to be made. In the event said report concerns one or more of the tenants, the Committee shall first contact the tenant, discussing their findings, and attempt to have the deficiency corrected in a reasonable length of time. If an agreement cannot be reached, the Committee shall prepare and submit to the Board a written report.
This report shall contain the Committee’s findings, the recommendations of the Committee and a summary of the discussions with the tenant. A copy of this report shall be given to the tenant, not less than five (5) days prior to being submitted to the Board.
The Committee shall be responsible for evaluating all proposed structures and/or improvements, prior to their being allowed as additions to the Moorage. Improvements and/or additions to the Moorage facilities and/or MCYC buildings shall be excluded from this requirement, providing the improvement and/or additions have been approved by the Board and/or General Membership.
In the case of a request from a new or current member to bring in a Boat, Boathouse or Houseboat, an inspection of the boat, float and or structure shall be made by not less than two (2) members of the Committee. The Committee's written report, complete with photos of the boat, float and or structure, as it relates to the standards of the club, shall be submitted to the Board for their review and action. To maintain the standards, the Committee is also responsible to evaluate all Boats, Boathouses, Houseboats and structures during tenancy.
The Committee shall not have the authority to enforce the standards. That authority shall lie with the Board. The Board’s decision can be appealed to the General Membership.
