Mooring Fees

by Cleghorn Admin on April 18, 2021

Hi Folks,

At our fall board meeting a number of fees were reviewed and some were increased. There’s a link on the sidebar on the right side that will take you to our current fee list. In particular, the fees for our secondary moorings were increased. The cost is now $350 if the secondary mooring is on your dock and $650 if you are using someone elses dock.

Nobody wants to see fees increase and there is an understandable desire for fees to stay the same forever, but this was needed to compensate for 16 years of inflation. The amount of the increase was slightly less than the total amount of inflation since 2005. The choice in raising fees was to pull the band-aid off quickly in one year or slowly with 2 or 3 years of rate increases. We choose to pull it off quickly.

Part of the reason for the increase was to bring the compensation for sharing a dock back to where it was originally. Matching dock owners willing to share a dock with mooring users works much better when the rates stay current. When rates fall, it becomes harder to find folks willing to share. Eventually, without an increase, it starts looking like grandma offering a quarter to the paperboy for Christmas.

There have been a few comments about the moorings fees and everyone’s wish that we had more boat slots is understandable. Yet the bottom line issue is how to equitably share a limited resource. We could rotate the secondary slots, every third year a resident gets a secondary spot for the summer. However most people prefer the continuity that our current system offers. Fees help us find the folks that get the most benefit from those few moorings and also benefit nonusers since the fees go to the good of Camp as a whole. Anyone that has questions on this or suggestions for better system, please stop by and we can chat.

Notes from the Dock Committee

by Cleghorn Admin on April 27, 2018

Hi folks,

I know it’s not quite summer. 29 inches of snow kind of proves the point, but we have a few things to share from the dock committee. First off, we have had a number of folks suggest that we identify the docks a bit better, so that other campers and guests do not inadvertently use the wrong dock. While long time residents do not have a problem, there are many others including workers and marina delivery folks who would greatly appreciate better identification.

What we plan to do is to identify each dock by stenciling in the dock the owners’ last name to be clearly visible to anyone walking onto the dock. If you have concerns, wish to do it yourself, or would like minor changes to the stenciling, please contact me at before labor day weekend. Put “Cleghorn Dock Identification” in the subject line so I do not miss it. We will work on this project once the temperatures are warm enough to paint and should be done mid-summer.

The second item is the dock rules which we have attached. They are also posted on the members portion of the camp website – look under the “camp rules” tab then select “mooring rules.” It would be wonderful if we had unlimited mooring spots. However, the reality is that the DNR grants us only 62 moorings which means that we have to make the best of what we are allowed.

Because of those limits, the bottom line is mooring spaces are only allowed to be used by camp and mobile home residents. Every cottage owner gets one guaranteed spot and secondary spaces are limited. Last fall one of our rules was clarified (see rule 5C) to help ensure that mooring spaces benefit residents and not renters. The rule has always stated that a cottage being rented does not qualify for a secondary mooring.

In keeping with that principle, we have made it explicit that this applies to short term rentals. If you rent your cottage long or short term – the renter may use your primary mooring and if you have a secondary mooring as some owners with short term renters do; it should be not be used when the renter has their boat at the cottages’ primary mooring.

Please let someone on the dock committee know before you have a renter use your primary mooring space. We do monitor mooring usage to keep the camp within the limits of our agreement with the DNR and appreciate your assistance.

And finally, all secondary moorings are in use this year. We are maxed out and will not be accepting any other applications until next year.
