I wish all my neighbors were like you!

I missed the cut and paste from the lease. Could you paste it again in quotes or italics?

If they told me "outside contractors only", I would hire my own company and send me to do the work

Have a copy of your businesses' $1 million liability policy handy?

Yep, that's the downside of that plan.

Some marinas around here restrict DIY work so they can more easily maintain their "MD Clean Marina" status. Much of that is about containment during sanding, blasting... and then any run-off. Latter controlled even when they do things like power-washing hulls themselves, as during a haul-out for instance; restricted to being in a specific place in the work-yard and the catchment tanks under there.

Breaking rules doesn't get you in too much trouble until something goes wrong. Just keep in mind that with every rule you agreed to and then violate, you're assuming a tremendous amount of liability.

While I didn't get in too much trouble...and many of the recipients later thought I was an upstanding guy.....


The first year I had my boat I started sanding off the bottom paint....well I keep sanding and grinding for nearly 3 months due to severe blistering and hydrolysis.


No big deal till the first decent dew on the boats in October. The blue bottom paint turned about 25 boats all around me all different colors from brown to purple.


I spent a week washing and scrubbing boats...from a 55 footer to a bunch of 20 somethings. My arms still hurt 4 years later.


The manager was all pissed...but the owner just laughed every day as I headed out with bucket and brush. It was in the yard, not the docks so it really wasn't a restricted activity....but I didn't want hard feelings and as I posted...by the time I was done, most owners said their boatds were never so clean...several boats I did 2-3 times... the 3X winners were a 37 foot Egg harbor sportfish and the other a 41 Sea Ray OUCH!!!

Must be clear whether it's in a slip or in the yard...usually two different conditions / restrictions - at least in my case.

In the slip it's all about creating problems w/ neighbors

In the yard similar w/ neighboring boats but more importantly is EPA & State DEC reqm'ts - and topside vs bottom can be very different

Our YARD will allow DIY sanding & bottom painting provided...
Plastic / tarps cover ground - dust / drippings collected & disposed of at least daily & properly...
yard very sensitive to environmental issues and possibility of a Gov Inspector showing up = Fines$$$

Topside sanding & even spray painting allowed (w/ prior discussion & permissions) owner just wants to make sure you protect other boats adequately

I've done all of the above w/ little / no issues when ask ahead and understand the reqm'ts - owner has even provided waste shrink wrap for ground covers -
Sometimes it helps to keep communications open and establish trust vs do it and beg forgiveness
