With that being said, the public felt they should have rights to the "dry sand" because the government paid to have it put there and not the private beach clubs and/or home owners.

we have been dealing with this for a few years now.

most people do not know about the law.
we have to give them access to the marina, but they can not walk up and down the docks.

of course on a busy weekend it is hard to know who beongs on the docks and who does not.

So if the law states you have to give them access to the water-front, does that me you as a marina owner don't have to pay taxes on that land because theoretically you don't own it? How about if it needs a new bulkhead, will the state pay for it? Then there's the safety and insurance issue, what if they trip and break an ankle...

It's really a silly rule....and now it's come to the forefront. I'm glad I'm not a marina owner. If some guy crabbing/fishing off the bulkhead takes may parking spot I'll be pissed!

There is an Assembly bill (A2601) as well as a matching Senate bill (S1553) pending ,dealing with this issue .A copy of the Senate Bill can be found here;

If this goes through I bet you will see a lot of Marinas changing over to some kind of private boating community.
Taken from Bill S1553; http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2008/Bi...00/1553_I1.HTM

"This bill recognizes that marinas, including yacht clubs and boatyards, in New Jersey come in many shapes and sizes, and therefore each marina must be permitted to establish a public access plan that addresses its operation, size, and geographic location, and the safety of the public at all times. It is the sponsor’s intent that the term “marina” also encompasses yacht clubs and boatyards."

I read the names of those elected who are sponsoring this bill; I have never heard of them (I guess they are from north Jersey?) Get a-hold of their collective asses and ask them if they have thought this bill/law through.
