1

Check tides - if below 1.6m at your request time prepare for a wait while the tide rises

If launch requested -
  1. Your boat will be moved out of its designated space using a cantilever forklift
  2. Placed on the lift & lowered into the water
  3. Your boat will be tied up to the valet dock facing away from the lift
