B DOCK THE PLACE TO B AT THE
The 2020 Season is Starting
My Dear Friends
What a strange spring as this has been. We thank you for your patience and understanding in this challenging time for our country. With Governor DeWine and the local council allowing us to open up on the 15 we need to implement some needed procedures to keep us all safe and healthy.
Following the guidelines by the CDC we will be practicing social distancing. On your boat you and your crew are able to relax and gather as you wish. With the docks only being so wide we cannot at this time have people congregating on the dock. The walkway is to allow persons to get from their boats to the island and back. Because at times you will be closer to others when walking the dock we ask that you use face coverings for each otherís safety.
When docking we will communicate with you on the radio and will call you in when ready. We will assist you with securing your vessel and will then collect fees. We will be wearing masks at this time and at times where there is close personal interaction we ask that you do also.
After we are finished with docking a boat we will use hand sanitizer or wash at the office before working with the next vessel.
Maintain social distancing at all times.
Dock boats with appropriate spacing to maintain social distancing
Use radio communication to control docking procedures.
Wear mask at all times when dealing with the public.
Use gloves when docking boats and assisting customers
If not using gloves sanitize hands or wash them between customers.
Avoid touching face.
Sanitize equipment frequently
Dispose of all cleaning and personal protection appropriately.
Follow current state guidelines for social distancing
Follow CDC guidelines for boat cleaning or disinfecting. If all else fails (What would Chad do )
Customers are to wear face coverings when interacting with dockmasters and when registering
No congregating on the docks
No rafting at this time.
We thank you for your understanding in this time of COVID 19. It is our goal to do everything we can to keep you our customers safe and healthy. We ask that you help us as we are all in this together. As regulations change we will adjust and update accordingly.

Located in the very heart of downtown Put-in-Bay DeRivera Park's B Dock is the place to be at the bay.
The Dock is in the center of the harbors public dock facility. Owned by DeRivera Park Trust all funds generated from the dock are used to maintain
the park or are put back into the dock itself.
This reinvestment of funds provides our patrons with an exceptional docking facility.
Our location, a superior dock, protected dock from any weather, and dedicated dockmasters are the reason many boaters only choose B dock.
B Dock, like the other public docks in the central harbor, is a linear dock. The dock is equipped with a finger
on the south west end, close to the shorline for our customers with smaller boats.
Built in 2001 this is the only small boat dock in the public harbor equipted with electric service and dock lighting. In order to provide service to the maximum number of
patrons, all docks in the central harbor require rafting up to four boats deep. Every attempt is made to match boats of similar sizes to safely
provide the maximum the amount of dockage available to our visitors. In most cases the difference in size between boats will be no more that 3 feet.
The dock assignments are controlled by the dockmaster on duty. As you enter the harbor you should contact B Dock on the calling channel marine #9. After contact
is made the dockmaster will have you switch to marine channel #68 to talk about your assignment and directions.
If you have a 28 foot vessel and dock in the center of a 40 foot hole that is against the dock, the dockmaster will most likely move you to another
location to efficiently use the space available. This will also allow us to help as many boaters as possible enjoy Put-In-Bay in safety.

Where does the money go?
DeRivera Park is protected by a Trust. The trust was founded in 1866 with the purpose of maintaining a park on the lake in the village of Put in Bay
for ever. The only source of income for the maintainance of the park comes from revenues generated on B dock. The revenues go to pay for maintenance
and repair employe payroll, improvements, utilities, the fountain, and dock improvements and repair. It also pays the mortgage on 18.7 acers of undeveloped land purchased by the trust and left as a natural green
