2._The period of this Agreement is from May 1 to October 31 and must be renewed annually.


3._The Company reserves the right to reassign a slip if it determines that  the vessel is too large or too small for the assigned slip. The Company also reserves the right to provide an alternate slip assignment when it determines that conditions warrant.


4._Slip leases are non-transferable. Tenants may not give the use of their slip to others or transfer boats between slips. If a Tenant expects to have his boat out of the slip for more than 14 days, he must notify the Company in writing.

In the event of a severe storm or hurricane, the Company may attempt, if practicable and possible, to provide damage prevention services, the cost for which will be prorated over all the vessels docked during the storm.

It is strongly recommended that Tenants not remain aboard their vessels during hurricanes or severe storm conditions.

The Company assumes no responsibility for the safety of any vessel, and will not be liable for loss or damage to the vessel, its equipment or any personal property thereon resulting from Acts of God, fire or theft.
