Restrictions:

Animals are not allowed on any SBSC yachts.

DO NOT stow fuel cans and outboards below or in any enclosed locker:

Ask for assistance if you plan on bringing fuel and/or an outboard.

DO NOT use metal coolers or metal storage containers of any kind:

Plastic is much kinder to the wood and fiberglass boat materials.

If you plan to SCUBA, we require that each diver sign a waiver prior to departure.
