Motorized water Activity (Applies to both boating and jet-skiing)
1. What happens if I don’t register my boat and use it on the Ski Lake?
It’s a good way to lose your boating privileges and end up paying fines. Here’s the rules.
Homeowners who use any unregistered power boat, jet ski or other engine-powered craft on the lake will receive notice of the offense via telephone and formal letter and Ski Lake privileges will be suspended for one year from the violation. Additional penalties of up to $400,000 and criminal charges may apply if the incident yields evidence of invasive species introduction into the water.
2. Can I test a jet-ski or boat on the lake that I do not own or has not been inspected by the HOA?
No. You must have a boat inspected and registered prior to putting it on the lake.
Because we can not control where a test craft has been — and the biologics it may contain — you can not test a boat on our lakes without going through an inspection and registration process and must have Ski Lake committee direct involvement prior to the test.
Putting a boat or jet-ski on the lake without registration and inspection carries an immediate fine of $1,000 with suspension of privileges for 1 year and may require us to drain, decontaminate, and refill the Ski Lake.
In this case, violation of this rule for an UN-registered craft may result in up to a $400,000 recovery of repair costs and may result in criminal charges. Contact the management company to arrange for any boat testing.
3. What else should I know?
You must certify that you comply with the terms in the registration form. If we have to drain, decontaminate, and refill the Ski Lake due to your violation of the rules, you may be liable for up to a $400,000 recovery of repair costs and possible criminal charges.
Re-inspections. The Board of Directors reserves the right to re-inspect any motorized watercraft upon demand at reasonably convenient times.
Decals. The PDR watercraft decal must be displayed clearly on the front right side of the motorized craft’s hull.
Boating days are set for motorized and non-motorized boats: Motorized boating days are Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. until sunset while displaying an Orange flag.
Non-motorized days are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays while displaying a Yellow flag — and the 10 minute rule does not apply. However, if the lake is not in use by a non-motorized boater, then the Ski Lake may be utilized by motorized boats until a Yellow flag is raised which suspends motorized activity until non-motorized activity ends.Power boaters that violate this rule are subject to a fine and suspension of boating privileges, at the discretion of the Board.
