BARNSTABLE – Fall in the Town of Barnstable means it is time for boat owners to remove their dinghies from town property.
Unless a vessel owner secures written permission from Barnstable Harbormaster staff for a proven need and that the vessel be actively used, no vessel shall be stored or placed on any Town property between November 15 and April 15 that is posted by the Harbormaster with a permanent sign to this effect.
Any vessel placed or remaining between those dates shall be considered abandoned property under this regulation, and will be scrapped or otherwise disposed of by the Town.
The Town of Barnstable shall not be responsible for damage to or theft of any vessel placed neither at this parcel nor for loss of property considered abandoned under this regulation.
Questions can be directed to the Harbormaster at 508-790-6273.
