The Social Member will be required to purchase a Stock Certificate and to pay the Boating Member initiation fee.  If the Social Member Initiation Fee was paid in the same year as the upgrade it will be credited against the Boating Member Initiation Fee.  If the Social Member Dues were paid for the year, the Boating Member dues will be waived for that year.

 

  1. Switching from a Boating Member to a Social Member

The Boating Member will need to provide a letter to the Secretary/Membership requesting that their Boating Membership be converted to a Social Membership.  There will be no initiation fee however the member must relinquish their Certificate.  The member can not switch back to a Boating Member; they must reapply as a new Boating Member.

 

  1. Family Usage of Boats

Boat operation by a Boating Member’s children is allowed until age 23.  Children, age 23 and older must have their own social membership to use the club’s facilities and operate the boat when the Boating Member is not present.  If your child owns their own watercraft and it is titled in their name, they must obtain a full boating membership.

 

  1. Multiple Docks

A Boating Member can not have multiple docks.  The spouse of an existing Boating Member may join as a new Boating Member, but will be required to pay all Boating Member fees including appropriate Initiation Fees.

 

  1. Past Commodore Resigns

In the event that the Past Commodore resigns from the Board of Trustees, the remaining Trustees shall elect a Certificate Holder (or their Spouse) in good standing to serve the un-expired term as called for in the Constitution.  The Board of Trustees shall then elect a Chairman among themselves.

Along with the dock deposit due by Nov 1 as outlined in the constitution, proof of liability insurance is required.  It is important that all boats and PWC are covered by liability insurance.  If the Boating Member has a PWC, they will also need to supply proof of liability insurance on the PWC.

    • To prospective new members that have placed themselves on a list to become a Boating Member.

 

  1. Boats – “Trailer” membership

Boating Members must have a dock registered to them to be able to launch a boat at RBC.  There are no “trailer” memberships for boating.  A member may trailer his boat in and out on the same day if they wish to during the boating season.  They may not store their boat on a trailer overnight at the club except for emergency issues.  Trailers may be left on the premise in the designated area by paying for a Trailer Storage permit.

 

  1. Boats over 28’ in length (grand fathered into the club in August 2004 Annual Meeting)
    • The Fleet captain will attempt to move those boats over 28’ 6” to the north side of the North Channel (docks 53 – 64) while placing boats under 24’ on the south side of the North Channel.
    • The Fleet captain may also place boats of this size in dock position 42A,B,C
    • As long as the boat is owned by the Boating Member of Record, the boat may continue to be docked at RBC, even if the member has skipped one or more years docking the boat at RBC as long as there has been no lapse in the boating membership of the Boating Member.  Inactive Membership will be treated as a lapse in Boating Membership.
    • Once the boat is sold, be it to another Boating Member of RBC or to an individual not currently a member of RBC, the boat will no longer be permitted to dock at RBC.

  1. Assignment of PWC Permits

Effective as of the 2006 Annual Meeting and reaffirmed at the 2008 Annual Meeting, new PWC Permits will require a separate Boating Membership.  Assignment of PWC Permits is done in the following order:

    • To an existing Boating Member that does not have a boat or PWC.
    • To an existing Boating Member that has a boat and is requesting a new Boating Membership for a PWC.
    • To existing Social Members that have placed themselves on a list to become a Boating Member and have asked for a PWC Permit.
    • To prospective new members that have placed themselves on a list to become a Boating Member and have asked for a PWC Permit.

Note:  If a Boating Member’s PWC is sold to another member, that member must apply for a new PWC Permit, which may or may not be available.

 

  1. Assignment of PWC Floats/Dockage

Effective as of the 2006 Annual Meeting and reaffirmed at the 2008 Annual Meeting, new PWC Permits require a separate Boating Membership, Assignment of PWC Floats is done in the following order:

    • We will phase this in since we have more than 25 PWC.
    • 1st would be existing PWC members (no boats) and assign them to floats as floats become available.  As of August, 2006 we have 11 members that have 17 PWC between them.  They have all paid the $1400 initiation fee and $100 for a stock certificate to become a boating member.
    • As additional floats become available, RBC would offer these floats to existing boating members with both a boat and a PWC, providing they upgrade to a new boating membership for the PWC.   RBC will allow the PWC to be transferred to an immediate family member (wife, son, or daughter) to allow for the new boating membership for the PWC. This is only required if a float is being requested, RBC will “grandfather” existing boating members with both a boat and PWC, however they must continue to trailer their PWC if they do not upgrade their membership.
