 **Waitlist: The current waitlist period is approximately 30 months.  A $100 non-refundable deposit is required to ensure the member's name is waitlisted.  When the member's name has reached the top 20, a further 25% holding deposit will be invoiced.  The 25% deposit is deducted from the first year's hardstand invoice.

Allocated space is for member's vessels only. Vessel must be inspected in order to use launching ramps. Member must be a current financial member of the OBC. 

A condition of hardstand usage is in place.  The member's vessel needs to be launched and retrieved from the Club ramps a minimum of 10 times per year (June-May).  The 10 launches are verified by electronic tag.  The hardstand facility may be withdrawn if the usage criteria is not met (subject to mitigating circumstances, ie health, disability etc.)

Relinquished: One months notice should be given to relinquish hardstand spaces.
Partners in Vessel: All partners in a vessel must waitlist their names for hardstand. All partners in OBC vessels are required to complete a boat inspection before the vessel can be stored on a hardstand or launched/retrieved on Club ramps.  If the existing member who has been allocated the hardstand space wishes to relinquish, this hardstand is not transferred to the partner. The second partner must remove vessel and wait until their name moves to the top of the waitlist.
