Prepare for winter

  • Docks: Take home any water toys not deflated & stored inside boat. Please never leave water hoses connected to faucet – ESPECIALLY during freezing weather!
  • Remove Summer clutter from the docks. A neat & orderly dock is a safe dock.
  • Remove any food/perishable items from boat.
  • Take home any water toys not deflated & stored inside boat.
  • Dry StorageBoat Winterization: Winterizing is an important part of boat ownership. The Dry Storage building is NOT heated so boats inside are subject to freeze damage. Boats in the water utilizing bilge heaters are also subject to freeze damage in the event of extended power outages.

Emergency Contact Numbers

Emergency contact information for our marina tenants is posted on signs on the inside all of the dock gates at Chickamauga Marina and at the electricity meter centers at Gold Point Yacht Harbor. Since time is of the essence in an emergency, take a moment to enter these numbers into your mobile phone or other electronic device.
