Attention all Spring Cove Boaters!
The Eastern United States is in the heart of Hurricane Season, and it is a good time to start thinking about your Hurricane Preparedness plan and what to do with your boat should a tropical system affect the Chesapeake Bay.
I’m sure many of your are keeping a close eye on Hurricane Irma, which is still over 2000 miles from Solomons. There are many forecast models to use to help us predict what might happen. It’s still too early to make any concrete determination as to Irma’s direction, but we should still be thinking about preparing as the days go by and she gets closer to the East Coast.
It’s important to remember, your boat is your responsibility. The Marina staff is, of course here to help in any way we can, but it is ultimately up to you to prep your boat for a severe storm.
The BoatU.S. website offers a great guide to Hurricane Prep, and has excellent content to help you make decisions and understand what you can do to best protect your boat. You can find that information here:
If you determine that you would like to have your boat hauled for a tropical storm, please call the boat yard as soon as possible. We do not keep a Hurricane Haul Out List and will only haul boats on a first-come-first-serve basis. Our Annual Slipholders always get priority over other boaters in the area. We are not always able to offer towing to the Lift Well for haul-outs, so please coordinate with the Boat Yard. We also don’t offer scheduling – please don’t call on Tuesday and ask to be hauled on Friday. Call us with a decision to haul and we will haul your boat as soon as possible.
*Please note that in order to haul a sail boat for a hurricane, all exposed or roller furled sails MUST be removed from the deck.
If you decide to stay in your slip for the storm event, we recommend that you remove all canvas and isinglass, and double your dock lines wherever possible. If you have questions about properly tying up your boat for a hurricane, please find Will or Trevor while you are here prepping your boat and we will do what we can to help.
We also offer a brief summary of recommendations for Hurricane Prep on our website – check it out.
Matthew Garrett will be returning to play the the Pool over Labor Day Weekend, on Monday September 4th! He will play from 2pm-5pm. So come out and enjoy the holiday weekend at Spring Cove!
The Courtesy Shuttle will be closing at 5:30pm on Friday, August 25th. The Calvert Marine Museum is hosting a Concert, and due to the foot and car traffic on the Island the Shuttle will be unable to leave our driveway. Thank you for understanding!

This coming Saturday, August 19th at 9:00 kicks off a day of fun and games for all our Marina kids, dubbed “Dock Day” by Krysta, Sam, and Piper!
“Dock Day” features lawn games, pool challenges, a scavenger hunt around the marina, prizes, t-shirts, and lunch provided by SCM!
The 2017 season has produced the largest group of kids that SCM has seen in many years! We are excited and appreciative that so many families have chosen to spend much of their free time with us and we want to say “Thank You” by showing our young members a fun time!
If you have not yet signed your kids up to participate, please call the office as soon as possible and speak to Krysta! 410-326-2161
We look forward to seeing all of our young swashbucklers here on Saturday!

Happy Independence Day to all Spring Cove Marina boaters!
Our season has kicked into gear with a roaring start, and we are headed into one of our busiest weeks of the year with the Fourth of July right around the corner.
We have Transient boaters visiting throughout the week, and the Marina grounds will be lively and full of friends both old and new! The forecast is for sunshine and hot weather, so the Wheelhouse and Pool will be bustling! Please pack your patience – we will do our best to keep the Orange Crushes and cold beers flowing as quickly as possible!
As always, the SCM Tent will be reserved for the use of Annual Slipholders only from Saturday through Tuesday. If all the picnic tables around the property are full, check out the Tent and see who’s there to share the space!
The Solomons Fireworks show will be on Tuesday night – the show usually starts around 9:15 PM.
Annual Slipholders – if you are headed out of your slip for a night over the Holiday, please fill out a Departure Slip at the Ship’s Store to let us know! Please note that the Boat Yard will be closed on Tuesday 7/4.
We wish you all a very happy and safe holiday week! Happy boating!
