Please register your boat with Security Services before attempting to enter the canal system, and attach the identification decal they provide. They will request a copy of the registration document, to evidence that the boat belongs to the Property Owner or their Tenant.
Use of Boat Slips
Only registered vessels may occupy their designated boat slip. Security Services may refuse entry - or arrange removal - of any unregistered boats, or those that are the subject of a breach of these Guidelines.
Single Boat Policy
The developers intended for each Sandyport waterfront lot Owner to be able to dock their boat at their Property. This should be one boat only at a given Property at a particular time, to avoid congestion. However if space permits and you need to store additional vessels, please make the request in writing to the Administration Office.
Security Services provides 24-hour security at the canal entrance. The barrier is always engaged, unless allowing traffic to pass through. However if you plan to enter or leave Sandyport by boat during the hours of darkness, please contact Security Services ahead of time, so that they know when to expect you. A ship to shore radio is tuned to channel 72, if you need to contact the canal security booth.
The infrastructure places restrictions on the boat sizes we can allow. Please note the following approximate measurements:
- Bridge height is 14’0” at high, and 17’5” at low tide
- Maximum draft is between 2’ and 5’ at low tide
We do not accept responsibility for any damage to boats. The above dimensions are for guidance only, draft and arial clearance at the entrance to the canal can be affected by waves and wakes.
Boat trailers may only be stored on the Owner’s developed Property, not on vacant lots or on Common Property.
Boat Launch Ramp
Only vessels registered with Sandyport Security Services and bearing the ID decal may use the boat ramp. Guests of residents are permitted to use the boat ramp conditionally upon the resident being present during it’s use.
The lot adjacent to the boat launch ramp is private property and is therefore not to be used for parking trailers.
