HODGDON MARINA

COVID-19 POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

Hodgdon Yachts takes the risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously and our paramount concern is for the health and wellbeing of our employees, customers, and the community. With this in mind, we are implementing some additional short-term policies which initially extend through June 15 with reassessment at that time. We are hopeful that the situation in Maine will have been eased by that time, but we will continue to take whatever steps are necessary towards health and safety:

  • Customers should not come to or be in our facilities if they feel ill.

  • Our docks and facilities are open to customers only. Please minimize foot traffic and minimize shared touched surfaces such as tables, pens, credit cards, receipts, and keys.

  • Boaters arriving by water: out-of-state clients should remain on their boat until the Executive Order requiring a 14-day quarantine for out-of-state visitors is lifted.

  • We require everyone on our property to observe "social distancing" practices. This includes avoiding gatherings in groups and maintaining distances of at least 6 feet. If this distancing is questionable, at a minimum please always wear a face covering.

  • We require employees to practice good hand hygiene with frequent hand washing and especially between contact with customers and customer equipment.

  • Access to the first floor Marina office will be one at a time to engage the Dockmaster. Please observe these numbers, wear a face covering, and maintain distances of at least 6 feet.

  • The second floor will remain locked and off limits, only to be used by Hodgdon employees and renters of the apartment. A portable toilet is provided for Signal Point Marina slip owners and their guests. We apologize for this inconvenience during this difficult pandemic.

  • The first floor bathroom in the back of the building is available for Hodgdon Marina rental guests, mooring rental customers, and fuel dock patrons. Using the head on your boat is recommended.

  • We are arranging boat delivery and pick-up at the Marina for our service yard customers. Hodgdon Yacht Services customers can access their boats without our employees on board. The times will be scheduled through Hodgdon Yacht Services (207-633-2970).

  • Parking at Hodgdon Marina will be in designated spaces. Exemptions will be the Hodgdon Marina Dockmaster, Hodgdon employees, and Signal Point Marina Dockmaster to park on the dock. The apartment rental guest will be allowed one designated parking spot.

  • All fuel sales and related products are credit card only. Pumping will be done by the fuel customer once the pumps are turned on by the Dockmaster. Dockmaster will wear a face covering and gloves during this process.

  • Seasonal dockage or mooring customers should return to their cars directly after boating without lingering or congregating. 

  • Please keep pets leashed.

  • Handling transient arrivals will be on a case-by-case basis. Dockmaster to discuss logistics of health and safety with larger boat captains pre-arrival.

  • Dockmaster will assist with line handling on larger boats, but line handling with smaller boats will be by those aboard the boat. We will always assist if there is risk of damage or injury.

The policies and procedures are in effect until June 15, 2020. We will be continuously reviewing all of these and will relax, extend, revise, and stiffen them as recommended by local, state, and federal authorities or as observed by the company.

We thank you very much for your support and compliance with these policies and procedures during this unprecedented time. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you,

The Hodgdon Marina Staff
