Sunnyside Marina

We have established a unique and effective way to schedule our boats for Spring Launch and Fall Haul-Out. The new process will treat each boater fairly and ultimately exceed your expectations.

The Main Events and Contracts

The Spring Launch and Fall Haul-Out are kicked-off with events in March and August, respectively. This is the first opportunity for you to turn in your contracts and choose one of the six weeks you would like your boat launched or hauled-out. The contracts are numbered as you arrive at the event, and this number becomes your overall seniority for the launch or haul-out of your boat. After the event, the contracts are separated by the week requested, and you are placed on the schedule in contract order.

The events are fun social gatherings. Generally, over one hundred of our boaters attend each event. You'll enjoy a continental breakfast and drawings for prizes throughout the morning. There is also a prize awarded to the first boater to turn in their contract. This leads to some interesting competition. Although the doors do not open until 8 AM, boaters are waiting as early as 5:30 AM to claim their prize.


The next part of our process is what really sets us apart. On the Wednesday prior to each week of the schedule, Rick Chapman, our General Manager, calls each boater (in contract order) to schedule the actual day and time for the launch or haul out of your boat. The first boater has their choice of forty time slots during their week, and the last boater gets the last time slot available for that week. Although this scheduling system is not always convenient for the operation of the marina, it shows a level of customer service and commitment not found everywhere.

Our Spring Launch and Fall Haul-Out process is just one of the ways we try to exceed your expectations.

Request Forms

Please return your winterization request forms as quickly as you can. This will enable Tim Hanna to create your work order for haul out and winterization.

Save yourself money and our time by draining your fresh water tanks and completing a final pump out prior to haul out. We will apply a sticker to your boat to indicate the final pump out has been done.

Remember that whatever items you chose to have us winterize for you this fall must also be summerized by us next spring. The charges for summerization will be included on your spring launch work order next spring.

Just like spring launch, all accounts must be cleared prior to haul out. This includes any outstanding assessments, work orders, electrical charges and the actual haul out and winterization work order.
