MVYC increased member dues effective 2020 by $500. Presumably that will mean an increase in prices there and there will be some turnover. I don't know what impact this will have on Valet. If MVYC...

To Bubble or not?

The nature of the OP leads me to think perhaps a new owner? Then the question is, how old is the dock, how constructed and what did the previous owner do? If you're off site for an extended time,...

plug the holes

You're right, Dan, and actually, we haven't had much critter evidence except once over 10 years ago. As noted earlier, a lot of this is ritual. You can only change the ritual when the generations...

Bucket trap

If I do a bucket trap, can I put it outside and attract critters before they get inside? Will it attract bigger critters that I don't want, e.g, skunk, coyote? How about under something that only...

newspapers

We're told the critters don't like the sound of walking on newspaper. The year we forgot the D-Con, they made a mess of several rolls of toilet paper, but never touched the beds. (Miss the days when...

Kiss

For me, if you can drive it yourself without crew, it's not a yacht.

I'm not sure how inspections work. If a DES inspector walks around the docks at my marina, or cruises by in his boat and I don't have a sticker, can s/he board? Does the marina operator have to...
