2024 Lift-In

May 11

In order to participate, you must be a member of the Port Elgin Yacht Club (Port Elgin Power and Sail Inc.). To join the club and request lift-in click here.

Participants will be expected to assist with lifting of other member’s boats so please plan to be available the whole day. The lift schedule for the day will be provided to participants one week prior to lift day, and will include expected lift time for each boat, as well as work shift details for each participant. Members who do not require lift-in (i.e. boat can be launched and hauled at the launch ramp) are welcome to participate.

General Information about Lift Days

Lift days are a cooperative activity arranged by the Port Elgin Yacht Club. In order to participate in lift-in and/or lift-out, boat owners must join the Port Elgin Yacht Club (Port Elgin Power and Sail Inc.) for waiver / insurance coverage purposes and to receive email notices regarding Club operations and events. Typically, lift-in is the Saturday before the May 24 long weekend and lift-out is the Saturday after Thanksgiving. 

Members requesting lift-in and/or lift-out are required to pay a lift deposit each year. Crane time is recorded for each boat and the cost is calculated based on recorded time plus a share of fixed costs. Typically, the deposit covers the cost of both lift in and haul out unless problems are encountered and additional time is required to launch a boat or to set a boat in its cradle. Following lift-out in the fall, the total lift cost for each boat is calculated and members are issued a refund if total cost is less than the deposit amount, or receive an invoice for additional cost if total is more than the deposit amount.
