Watercraft Storage Terms
This agreement is made and entered into by Roberts Cove Basin, LLC (hereafter "MARINA") and the OWNER of the boat as written on the WATERCRAFT STORAGE REQUEST form (hereafter “OWNER”).
In consideration of the obligation of OWNER to pay a storage charge to MARINA as herein provided, and in consideration of the other terms and conditions hereof, MARINA shall provide OWNER with outside storage space, or inside storage space, for the watercraft (hereinafter “BOAT”) described on the WATERCRAFT STORAGE REQUEST form. If MARINA stores more than one boat for OWNER, a separate WATERCRAFT STORAGE REQUEST form must be completed for each boat.
The storage season shall be from October 1 thru May 1 the following year. The basis of storage fees and charges shall be for this 7-month period. Additional charges may apply for early removal from the water, early removal from storage or extended storage.
BOATS MUST BE WINTERIZED BEFORE THEY WILL BE PLACED IN STORAGE. IT IS THE OWNER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO ARRANGE FOR WINTERIZATION.
Payment for storage for each boat will be billed as follows:
$100 dollars will be due upon leaving the boat and/or storage agreement. The MARINA will bill for the remaining amount immediately after the boat has been placed in storage. 50% of the bill will be due at the time the invoice is issued and the remaining bill will be due 30 days later. Any bill not paid by January 1 will be considered delinquent and a monthly billing charge of $25 will be assessed until the bill and billing charges are paid in full. Any boat not paid in full by July 1 will be considered abandoned. Parties making monthly or scheduled payments will not be billed monthly billing charges nor will their boat be considered abandoned. The OWNER may elect to make timed payments as listed on Request Form.

Any boat not paid in full by July 1 of the year following acceptance will be considered abandoned. The MARINA may dispose of any boat considered abandoned under the NH State Statutes for non-payment of storage fees and charges and may recover all charges in accordance with the State laws.

Furthermore, OWNER agrees that as a condition of this contract, he will provide insurance for all perils and to provide a certificate of insurance to MARINA.

OWNER and MARINA hereby agree that during the storage period unauthorized access to Boat is prohibited. As such, OWNER will contact the MARINA by phone or by mail, to inform MARINA if any person, firm, or corporation, including OWNER, will be on premises. No brokerage firms or individuals acting as selling agents will be allowed to sell boats on the premises, without prior written permission from MARINA.

The storage of the BOAT may be terminated and the BOAT may be removed from MARINA property after providing written notice to OWNER at the address listed on the Water Craft Storage Request form. Any terminations of storage and/or removal of the BOAT shall not affect or impair any lien rights of MARINA for unpaid charges of any kind.
