best on-the-water sunsets anywhere. We look forward to seeing you and being
of service to you.

GET SAFE FOR BOATING
With Spring fast approaching, now is the time to get your boat safety-ready for the Boating season. Check your safety gear to ensure it's in good condition and meets Coast Guard requirements. Your vessel needs a life jacket/PFD for everyone aboard, as well as a fire extinguisher, visual distress signal, a sound producing device, etc.
All of these items are available for purchase in our Marina ship stores at very competitive prices. It's also highly recommended that your boat be equipped with a VHF radio, since cell service on the water can be spotty.
