Legendary Boating Club, LLC. (“Legendary” or the “Club”) is committed to serving our Members and any co-Members (“Members”) with the highest level of excellence. The following rules and regulations are for the benefit of all Club members.

B) Level II - Fishing Class: covers use of the offshore fishing fleet up to 20 miles offshore and 50 miles in either direction from the closest pass to the launch marina. Bay boat use is limited to the bays and Intracoastal Waterway. Prior to taking out any Legendary fishing boat a Member must pass the Level II water test. Level II-B class is an optional instructional offshore fishing trip with a captain. This class does not impact certification but is both informative and enjoyable.
C) Overnight Endorsement: covers use of fleet up to 50 miles from the launch marina unless special permission is granted and limited to the bay and Intracoastal Waterway and one mile offshore including overnight trips (overnight trips require member to have vessel anchored or moored). Prior to checking out a vessel for overnight use a Member must pass a Level I written and water exam and receive written endorsement from General Manager.
2. GENERAL USAGE: A Member must be present to check out a boat and must be onboard at all times.

11. MINIMUM AGE: Member must be twenty-five (25) years of age or over to join the Club.
12. WEATHER: If the weather turns inclement while you are out, return to the marina immediately or go to the nearest, safe shelter. If you reach shelter safely, notify Legendary of your position and situation using a cell phone. If an emergency situation does arise, call the appropriate governmental authority and/or Legendary from a cell phone. Members are required to bring a cell phone on the boat. Offshore boats are equipped with a VHF radio for use when out of cell phone range.
13. SAFETY: For Members' safety, Legendary reserves the right to cancel boating at any time due to weather conditions. If weather is inclement, please call before arriving at the Club to inquire about the status of the fleet. For safety reasons, Legendary will cancel offshore boating when a small craft advisory is posted on NOAA or if the wind is over 20 MPH. Additionally, Legendary reserves the right to cancel inshore boating if a small craft advisory
is posted and inshore weather conditions present a safety hazard for Members.
14. TOWING: A Member is responsible for paying towing charges if:
1) the Member creates the reason the boat requires towing; or
2) the Member has exceeded the Club's distance limits without advising Legendary of the trip. If towing is required due to mechanical problems caused by normal wear and tear and the Member is within Club distance limits, Legendary will pay the towing charges. If the boat becomes disabled, call the Dock
Manager immediately to alert him of your circumstance. Other than life saving emergency situations, a Member may not use Legendary boats to tow another boat unless an agent of Legendary gives permission.
15. RESERVATIONS are made using our online reservation system or by direct line. The Club reserves the right to substitute, alter or cancel boats (due to unforeseen circumstances) and modify reservation protocols posted on the web site. Members may reserve three calendar dates at a time and up to six months in advance. Members are responsible for keeping their reservations and arriving on time. Member must return watercraft to the same location where watercraft was checked out within Club hours unless otherwise instructed or permitted by the Dock Manager. Members are asked to reserve center console fishing boats with the intent of fishing. Members privileges are subject to suspension if Club is not notified of cancellations 24 hours prior to scheduled departure.
16. MEMBER'S RESPONSIBILITY FOR WATERCRAFT; DAMAGE: If damage occurs because of direct negligence by member; including disregard for signage, maritime laws, any Aid To Navigation posted on charts or fixed on the body of water traveled- the Member shall be responsible for any loss or damage to Legendary watercraft and accessory equipment including, without limitation, any damage to the boat’s propeller, engine, lower unit, hull as a result of submerged debris, running aground, high speed shift, or any other reason from the time that such watercraft and accessory equipment is furnished to Member up to and including the time of its return to Legendary, regardless of who was in actual physical custody and control at the time of the loss or damage and regardless of whether such loss or damage is covered by insurance. In the event of a loss that is covered by insurance according policy limitations, Member shall be responsible to pay any insurance deductible and applicable sales tax for said deductible. Currently, the deductible for Legendary insurance is $2000.00 Any Members or Guest Cargo will Not be covered by insurance and is taken on board any Club vessel at the Members or Guest own responsibility. Members are part of the named insured on Legendary liability policy and will be covered up to $1Million minus the deductible in the event the member is liable for an incident. If damages as defined above as “direct negligence by member” causes damage of power-train- damage including engine, lower unit, outdrive, etc. Members will be held responsible for the entire amount and insurance claims will not be filed. The vessel is inspected by the Dock Manager prior to a Member’s use and upon return. Any damage that occurs while in Member's possession will be noted and charged. However, some items, particularly damage to the engine (i.e., caused by entangling the prop and rope, or fishing line, running the engine at high rpm after a problem occurs, etc.) may not be noticed at the check-in time. If damage is discovered after return of the vessel which was not immediately noticeable at check-in, the Member will be notified and if, in the sole discretion of Legendary, Legendary Boating Club deems the Member to be responsible, the Member’s credit card will be billed for all damage/cost incurred. Member may be denied boat usage until payment is received.
17. RIGHT TO LIMIT USE OF CRAFT: The Club reserves the right to limit Members use of specific vessel types if in the sole discretion of the General Manager, Member requires further training to safely operate the vessel. An annual recertification on certain vessels may be required of Member.
18. RESPECT FOR LEGENDARY VESSELS: The Legendary staff and Members take pride in the cleanliness and quality condition of the Club’s fleet. Normal cleaning is included in Member’s fee. However, at the sole discretion of the Dock Manager, if a vessel is returned in an extremely messy condition reflecting disrespect for the vessel and the Legendary staff, Member will be charged an appropriate cleaning fee.
19. CARE OF FISHING VESSELS: To keep non-fishing boats from being damaged by fishing equipment and free of fishy odors, a Member may not fish from a boat that is not specifically designated as a fishing boat. If you are not sure about a boat's usage, ask a Legendary staff Member. Member is required to conduct a basic wash down of fishing vessels while at sea before returning to port to remove blood and fish entrails from the vessel. Fishing boats are equipped with raw water wash down and/or cleaning brush. This process only takes a few minutes and saves the Dock Hands hours of cleaning dried blood and fish entrails which are not easily removed from the deck, upholstery, and fish boxes. Additionally, as a courtesy, Member is required to remove all bait from the live well and drain the live well before coming into port.
20. MEMBER STATUS: A Member's rights are for the prepaid use of Legendary watercraft only. Any “ownership” addressed in this agreement pertains specifically to the Member’s own individual Membership.

21. CLUB DUES: To ensure the high quality of service our Members have come to appreciate, it may be necessary for Legendary to increase Club Dues. Any increase in Club Dues will be announced by email no less than 30 days prior to the effective date of the increase. The notice will be sent to the primary email listed on the member’s account. Club Dues are due by the 1st of each month. If not received by the 5th calendar day membership privileges will be put on hold. If Club Dues are not paid by the 15th of the month in which they are due a late charge of $50 will be assessed and the outstanding Club Dues will be charged to Member’s credit card on file with Legendary. If Member has invoices outstanding that Legendary has been unable to collect payment on by the 15th of the month, the Member’s Membership will be SUSPENDED.
