I understand the charges for Slip Rental and/or Storage Fees at PDPM do not include insurance coverage to protect my boat for any loss or damage due to fire, theft or any other cause. I also understand that Port Dalhousie Pier Marina does not provide such coverage.



The Owner represents and warrants that there are insurance policy or policies currently in force which shall continue in force throughout the term of this Agreement in connection with the Ownership and operation of the Boat having limits of not less than $1,000,000 for third party liability including bodily injury or death to any number of persons in any one accident and property damage.



These Terms & Conditions apply to all persons, at all times, who rent slips &/or store their vessel at PDPM. It is your responsibility to read and understand these Terms & Conditions. Failure to do so does not exempt you from any liability to PDPM and is at your own risk. If your vessel remains berthed at your slip or stored in our yard or parking lot for a period longer than 1 hour after initial berthing &/or storing, you will be deemed to have accepted these Terms & Conditions and have agreed to comply with them.



During the Usage Period, you are entitled to use your slip and all other facilities provided at PDPM.


You can only use your slip for berthing your vessel. Prior to berthing, you must obtain PDPM's permission to berth the vessel you intend to berth.

While berthed at PDPM, your vessel can only be used for personal recreational purposes. You must not use the vessel for commercial activities or to make financial gain without PDPM’s prior permission (which may be given subject to additional terms and conditions, including a requirement to pay a commercial use surcharge).


No part of your vessel, when berthed at the slip, is allowed to extend beyond the physical confines of the slip except as stated in the rental agreement. If this occurs because you have misrepresented your vessel’s dimensions to PDPM, PDPM may either immediately terminate your right to use your slip without compensation, or relocate your vessel to a suitably sized slip and require you to pay additional charges.
