Berthing rules

§ 1 These rules apply to the rights and obligations of the owner of the boat berth and docking in Pyysaari, the home port of HTPS.

§ 2 The agreement regarding the boat berth is valid continuously without a different agreement, until the owner of the boat or HTPS terminates it in writing. The termination by the owner of the boat takes effect after the owner’s/holder’s boat has left Pysaari or Pursiniemi and all contractual obligations have been fulfilled. However, the condition for keeping the boat berh is that the owner of the boat berh complies with these rules.

§ 3 HTPS is not responsible for damages occurring in the dock or harbour area.

§ 4 The owner of the boat berth is obliged to have his boat inspected and participate in the night guard duty of Pyysaari in accordance with the instructions given separately for the inspection and night guard. The owner of the boat docked in Pyysaari is obliged to participate in the docking of boats by doing at least one docking shift per season according to the instructions of the dock master.

§ 5 Boat berth fees for the summer season must be paid in advance no later than April 15 of each year. The docking fees for the winter season must be paid in advance by September 15 of each year at the latest.

§ 6 The boat may only be docked after payment of the berth fee (docking fee) has been made. Docking must be arranged well in advance each year with the HTPS dock master or harbor captain. If the owner of the boat does not need a docking place for the winter season, he must inform the club about it no later than September 1. Exception procedures must be agreed separately with the dock master or harbor captain. If the docking fee has not been paid and nothing else has been agreed upon, the club can take the next boat in line to the docking place.

§ 7 The owner of the boat berth is responsible for any damage caused to the HTPS harbour, dock or their equipment.

§ 8 A docked boat that has not been launched by June 10th at the latest and for which the berthing contract has been terminated, can be launched at the responsibility and expense of the boat owner and transported away from Pyysaari to the place designated by the city for abandoned boats.
