Fall 2019 Update

We have reached capacity for both winterization & storage and are unable to accept more boats. The store hours are Wednesday & Thursday 10 – 3 and Friday & Saturday 9 – 5. We will be closed for the winter starting October 27th (or possibly sooner, when the last boat is picked up).

There are just not enough hours in the day to get the remaining boats done and marina items finished before the snow flies.

Thank you everyone for another great season, it wouldn’t be possible without your continued loyalty. A big shout out to all of our amazing customers who took the time to review us! We appreciate it beyond words.

Don’t Get left Out In The Cold!!!

winter boat storage

There’s still a bunch of good boating days left, but it’s time to confirm your boat’s winter storage spot.  For folks who stored their boat with us last year, please confirm your spot for this year.  We do have a waiting list for storage, so please don’t wait.  Confirm you spot today!!

The lake dropping somewhere around 9″ – 10″ a  week.  You can keep track of the lake level at https://waterdata.usgs.gov/ny/nwis/uv?01323500

Our dock season will end on September 15th, unless the level drops faster.

  • If you are bringing your boat in by water, please make sure you have fenders and dock line.
    • Please use the boat repair slips unless otherwise directed.
    • Keep in mind our docks will be pulled in as soon as we have all the boats hauled.
  • If you want us to haul your boat, make sure we have the keys and the trailer (registered & road worthy) and update us on your plans.
  • If you stored with us last year and have made other arrangements, PLEASE let us know NOW.  Others could use your spot.
  • If you have any questions, please ask. (518) 863-8112

Our September and October hours are here.  They may change slightly, but we’ll keep you posted.  We are outside most of the day hauling and winterizing boats, so please leave voice mail or shoot us an email.

Thank you for another great season!

 

August and September Business Hours Changes

We hope everyone has been having a safe and fun boating season.  August is upon us and with that our hours change.  This give us a little time off to regroup before the storage and winterizing season starts.  Gas dock hours remain the same, except for August 3rd.

August – September 2019
Saturday August 3rd 8:30am – 2:00pm, including the gas dock
Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday 10:00am – 2:00pm
Friday & Saturday 8:30am – 5:00pm
Sunday 10:00am – 2:00pm
Closed Monday

Heat Advisory July 19-21, 2019 – Closing Early

It’s looking like it’ll be a hazy, hot and humid weekend.  The heat index is forecasted to be in the high 90s to over 100, even here at the lake.

Although our hours for the weekend are 8:30-5 and Sunday 10 – 2, we will close early due to the excessive heat 🥵🥵
We don’t have an exact time on when we will close thru the weekend, that will be determined as the day progresses and the heat builds.

We suggest you stop by in the morning hours (by 12:00 to be safe) for your boating needs, this includes the gas dock.  Thank you!!

Stay hydrated and boat smart, boat safe!!

Mercury VesselView Mobile

Mercury VesselView MobileVesselView Mobile allows you to use your smartphone (Android or iPhone) to connect with your Mercury outboard or sterndrive engine. The plug-and-play engine module connects via Bluetooth to your phone, providing quick, convenient access to your engine’s data. One module can monitor up to four engines. You can even customize the data points across three screens to fit your boating style. VesselView Mobile is compatible with all SmartCraft-compatible Mercury outboards and sterndrive engines (2004 and newer, 40hp and up).

The information provided via VesselView Mobile is much more accurate than most analog gauges. You’ll have a much better sense of your true rpms, your fuel burn, your speed, your fluid pressure levels – anything that can be measured on analog gauges will be more accurate with VesselView Mobile. You can even customize the data that’s displayed, so you have instant access to what you want to know.

What does this do for you?  VesselView Mobile acts as an extension of your engine, providing detailed information on your engine’s performance. It can even notify you if something isn’t right. More than just a series of beeps or a numeric code, VesselView Mobile will tell you in clear language what is going on with your engine. When you take your engine in for routine maintenance or storage, your dealer can also review those alerts and help you keep your engine in top condition.  Better yet, by selecting a Preferred Dealer (hopefully that will be us), that dealer will be able to see the same faults you do while on the water and be able to point you toward the possible problem.  Call today!! Installation is quick and painless.

 

2019 Boating Season

Cold, rainy start to the boating season.

Welcome!! It may be raining and there may be snow in the forecast, but the docks are open and ready for your boat.  Boat & jet ski slip assignments are posted on the store door.  Please check, some have changed.  Trailer parking is in the storage lot along the lane, please close the gate on your way out.

The gas dock will open May 24th.

Reminder, we are closed on Saturday May 18th for our middle child’s college graduation.  We’ll resume regular hours on Sunday.

Heads up for Sunday May 19th:  The Sacandaga Half Marathon will be running through Northville, Sacandaga Park (Co Hwy 152), Rt 30, Bunker Hill Rd and back.  The time frame is something like 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, so please plan ahead.  From the marathon folks: “vehicles will not be able to travel in the entire southbound lane of Rte 152 until all the runners enter the Bunker Hill Rd…some southbound travel will be allowed, though discouraged, once the runners are going northbound on Rte 152…Rte 152 will be clear about noon.”

2019 Boat Slips

The 2019 Boat Slip paperwork went out in the mail today.  Please return it to us no later than February 28, 2019. If we don’t hear from you by February 28th, your slip will go to someone on the waiting list.

Looking for a boat slip on the Great Sacandaga Lake?  Email us with your boat size and type to get on the waiting list.

Season’s Greetings

Season’s Greetings!!! Engines are winterized, boats are covered and in storage, the docks are pulled in and the lake has iced over.  We finished shrink wrapping the last boat only hours before the first snow in November! I think we set a record breaking pace that last week.  Now it’s on to cross country skiing and prepping for next season.

Thank you everyone for another great season, it wouldn’t be possible without your continued loyalty. A big shout out to all of our amazing customers who took the time to review us! We appreciate it beyond words. New in the works this coming year are video reviews. We’ll be reaching out to folks to do a video review for us. If you are willing and interested please message or email us. We appreciate all of you!! Thank you!!

David & I Wish You a Wonderful Holiday Season & a Very Happy & Healthy New Year!!

 

Almost Ski Season!

We’re in the home stretch at the marina.  The docks have been pulled in and we are finising up the last of the winterizing.  Then it will be on to shrinkwrapping boats.  The last day we will accept boats for winterization is October 20th.

Our October hours are Wednesday & Thursday 10 am – 2 pm and Friday & Saturday 9 am – 5 pm.  Hours for Saturday, October 20th are 9 am – 2:30pm (I’m playing in the GCM concert that day); if you need to pickup or drop off after 2:30pm, please call or email and we’ll work something out.  If you need to drop off or pickup on days we are not open, call and we’ll work something out.
