Dumpster Days are ‘comin

Always an event Dumpster Days are coming…one in July and one in August!  Keep an eye out for flyers coming sooner than later.

 

DOCK BUILDING

Did you know that Island residents built the docks in the south end of the marina?  The term it takes a village translates to it takes an island.  With that said there are two docks that will need to be constructed in the near future.  The goal is to aim for early fall and we are calling on owners to assist in these builds.  If you are interested in donating your time to this project, please email the office at hioffice@hatisland.com .  If you have experience with power tools and building even better!  If you don’t but are teachable that’s welcome as well!  If you are neither but want to help, there will be opportunities.  Here we go islanders, it’s time to get our build on!

 

The Hat Island Ferry: Another Holiday Pet Policy-

Small crated pets are allowed to ride to ride inside the ferry.  If you have an allergy to pets, or are afraid of pets, please inform the crew before your scheduled trip by emailing hiferry@hatisland.com and they will do their best to make sure you are seated away from any pets.

In addition, as has always been the case, the Skipper is the Master of the Vessel.  If he feels that there is a safety issue due to weather, he has the discretion to bring all pets inside for the safety of all passengers.

 

Friday Golf is BACK!!!!

Attention all golfers! With the summer-like weather we’re seeing today, it’s time to start “Friday Fun Golf.” Every Friday throughout the summer, golfers convene at the caddy shack at 1:00 PM to draw random teams to play a 9-hole scramble; usually with a fun twist. All skill levels are welcome, as long as you bring one dollar for the kitty. Shirley Allen will be running the show until Ginger Harmon makes her way back to the island.

Another Holiday Update

Brix Marine (formally Armstrong Marine) are in Everett completing a small laundry list of finishing details needed as we prepare for the final Coast Guard inspection.  The new ramps to the ferry are complete and stationed, one on the island and one next to the vessel in Everett.  Captain Shane has put on a thick coat of non-skid paint so they are ready for all kinds of weather.

We have been working out all of the details regarding storage and cargo runs for owners.  Attached to this email are the updated ferry rules for Another Holiday.  Please take the time to read them.  The Hat Express Rules are still on the website at this time for comparison.

Please note that as we work out the details and have Another Holiday in service, we will need the wiggle room to adjust these ferry rules.

When Another Holiday goes into service, we will be limiting the number of pets to eight.  It will be important for you to book your pets when you are making reservations that you do so for your pets as well.  If they don’t have a reservation and we are at our eight-pet limit they won’t be allowed on board.  Again, this number may change once we are in operations.

We are currently working on a cargo schedule and pricing sheet. When we are ready to start the cargo runs this will be sent out and a reservation button will be added to Bookeo.  Depending on the amount of cargo this may accommodate up to 16 passengers.  Please keep an eye out for this information to be coming shortly.

Another Holiday stopped by the island today and we were able to try out a Costco cooler that we know a lot of owners own.  It Fit!!  No room on top…. but it fit!  We also fitted the overhead shelf with a Costco carryon suitcase.

Masks on the Ferry 

Masks continue to be required on the ferry.  Please note that this means the entire trip.  Ferry crew will remind you if they see you remove your mask.  If they have to ask you repeatedly to keep your mask on you may be fined or perhaps suspended from riding the ferry.  Hat Island has many residents that fall into the high-risk category for Covid-19.  We are not willing to put them at risk, the crew at risk and for that matter any of our owners at risk.  We know that we are all weary of COVID-19.  However, as long as these restrictions are in place, we will be enforcing them

COVID-19 Update

Just a few reminders where the island stands regarding restrictions due to COVID-19.

  • Only owners and their families can currently ride the ferry.
  • No guest boats in the marina.
  • The public restrooms are closed.
  • The playground is currently closed.
