Oak Bluffs Harbor Resident Slip Lottery
Preamble: The Oak Bluffs Board of Selectmen, upon the advice of the Harbor Master and The Harbor Advisory Committee, has created docking opportunities for qualified Oak Bluffs residents. The Town acknowledges that its year-round resident taxpayer population has no other opportunity for dockage at the public Oak Bluffs Marina. The following slip has been created:
A. One resident slip shall consist of: One slip with a beam of 11.2.
B. The cost of each slip will be based upon the length of the boat (bow to stem). The charge shall be $75 per foot, with a thirty foot minimum.
C. Applicants shall be selected based upon a lottery system conducted at a Harbor Advisory Meeting. Applicants selected through the lottery shall be permitted to dock their boat in the allocated resident slip for the remainder of this season. Applicants must be an Oak Bluffs voter with a vessel registered in the Town of Oak Bluffs. All excise taxes and registrations and insurance must be paid and kept current. Proof of these requirements is to be included in the lottery application.
D. If a winning applicant moves out of town during the lease term, the slip must be given up. If the applicant moves during the summer season, they may keep use of the slip for the remainder of that season.
E. No selected applicants shall permit their vessels to be engaged in any commercial enterprise. This includes any form of charters or rental of the vessel of record. Any persons found violating this or any other provision of this regulation shall forfeit the use of the seasonal slip. All slip fees are non refundable.
F. Only the vessel of record may occupy the slip. If the vessel of record is not the vessel occupying the slip, the slip will be forfeited and a special lottery shall be held to determine another resident slip holder. The slip holder may, however, purchase another vessel to replace the one occupying the slip as long as all of the requirements contained herein are met.
G. The Harbor Advisory Committee and the Harbormaster shall review all applications for the resident slips prior to the lottery to ensure conformance with the rules and regulations, and to determine eligibility of applicants.
